The Insider #2: Booking Agent Mike Epstein

Mike Epstein is the President and Founder of Epstein & Company, an international booking agency that represents a roster of brilliant artists, including Maria Schneider, Fred Hersch, Cyrille Aimee, Jane Bunnett and Maqueque, Donny McCaslin and more. His agency offers booking services for professional touring artists as well as value added services for those who need them including travel, logistics, advancing dates, and tour marketing. We chat about Mike’s Artist Growth Process™, a unique process built around their individual clients’ biggest goals that focuses on maximising performance opportunities, increasing artist fees, and growing their fan base so they are free to focus on creating and performing.
