This morning, the Paradigm Talent Agency announced that North American booking and talent agencies AM Only and The Windish Agency will now formally be known as Paradigm Talent Agency.
This is a MASSIVE takeover, as the three of these agencies separately represented a large roster of highly talented artists. We are now seeing a helluva powerhouse roof overseeing A LOT of different artists from across the music spectrum. Paradigm, AM Only and Windish came together back in November with a move to a new combined office space in downtown New York. Both of their official sites and social handles have already made the transition to the official Paradigm logo and the Paradigm artists roster has been updated. EARMILK has collaborated with both of these agencies separately – either on artist interviews, features, etc. – and look forward to what comes from the combined resources and the combined efforts from the veteran staffs out of this move.
According to a statement released earlier today:
Paul Morris (CEO of AM Only) and Tom Windish, (Founder/President of The Windish Agency) will continue their leadership roles within Paradigm's Music Executive Group along with Dan Weiner, Marty Diamond and CODA's Tom Schroeder. "I've found that the same entrepreneurial spirit that leads to successful business building also lends itself to successful career building for our clients," said Paradigm Chairman and CEO Sam Gores. "In working with like-minded professionals, we're able to expand our reach, resources and clients without losing our focus. Our mutual respect and shared values makes this integration a natural fit…
"By combining forces with Monterey Peninsula Artists, Little Big Man and, now, AM Only and Windish, Paradigm has built an inclusive culture that keeps the spirit of these independent companies alive, which allows our unique attributes to continue to flourish within the unified agency," said Paul Morris, CEO of AM Only.
