Name: Matt P-Copley
Company: Primary Talent International
Can you tell us a bit about the company’s history and its roster? Formed in 1990 as the result of a merger between two existing agencies – Station Agency and World Service. The result was one of the foremost contemporary music booking agencies in Europe.
Primary was established on the basis that being a big agency, far from being a problem, could be a real benefit to everyone as long as the ratio of individual agents remained unchanged and the personal style of working – for which UK agencies are famous – was not only maintained, but increased.
Since the very beginning, Primary has prided itself on the wide and ever increasing spectrum of musical styles and nationalities that its roster encompasses. It has a deserved reputation around the world, not only for the quality of its artists, but also for setting high standards of technical output and innovation.
– and a bit about the acts you personally work with at this moment? I enjoy working with lots of different kinds of acts, as each has a different set of requirements and way of thinking. Working with acts from Lana Del Rey to Rufus Wainwright to Crossfaith, (Sandy) Alex G, Hop Along, Kadhja Bonet and many more.
What are your favorite Danish acts? Mew / Iceage
Best show you’ve ever seen hands down? It’s too hard to decide. But recently – Bon Iver @ Hammersmith Apollo.
