Boutique booking agency Skyline Music has opened a Los Angeles office in Sherman Oaks. SkylineÂs eclectic roster of exclusive clients includes George Winston, Solomon Burke, Victor Wooten, Nancy Sinatra, Roger McGuinn and 25 others. The company, which was founded in 1985, will also continue to operate four offices on the East Coast.
Company president Bruce Houghton will be heading the LA outpost bringing SkylineÂs aggressive approach to more West Coast based clients. ÂWith six experienced agents plus support staff and only thirty clients, we have one of the lowest agent to artist ratios in the industry. This allows us to offer a more personalized and targeted approach than most of our competitors,Â states Houghton.
ÂWe also have a unique performing arts team and a new symphony division which provides many of our clients work in this very lucrative market,Â he continues. ÂArts venues are no longer simply about classical music and fine arts, and are increasingly becoming the venue of choice for adult audiences seeking all kinds of entertainment.Â
The Skyline organization also operates the music and technology blog Hypebot and eclectic Internet music stream AudioSkyline. ÂExploring new technologies and helping our clients take advantage of the opportunities that they provide is a core part of our mission,Â states Houghton.
With current releases and tours by Winston (BMG) and Sinatra (Sanctuary), Sophie B Hawkins (Lightyear/WEA), and The von Trapp Children (Rattlesby) and first quarter 2005 releases and tours by Victor Wooten and Solomon Burke (Shout!/Sony) plus up and coming acts like ChicagoÂs Garaj Mahal and San FranciscoÂs Hot Buttered Rum, Skyline is poised for aggressive growth.
ÂLos Angeles is the entertainment capital of the world and with all of the upheaval and consolidation happening in the industry; this is a great time for us expand,Â Houghton concludes.
