CIMA Member Julien Paquin (Paquin Artists Agency-Paquin Entertainment Group) Interviewed by Larry LeBlanc
Julien Paquin, President of Paquin Artists Agency (a division of Paquin Entertainment Group) and CIMA member, was interviewed by Larry LeBlanc for an industry profile hosted by CelebrityAccess Event Wire.
Here’s a snapshot of what’s in the profile:
“Like one-time fellow Winnipegger Neil Young, Julien Paquin has spent a lifetime being fascinated with the opportunities in ditches on the side of the road than being interested in what’s available in the centre of the roadway.
And his championing of emerging niche-styled Canadian artists is paying off.
He heads Paquin Artists Agency, a division of Paquin Entertainment Group founded in 1985 by his father, industry veteran Gilles Paquin, who is founder/CEO of the full-service, diversified entertainment company.
Julien joined the company as an agent in 1993.
Under his stewardship, Paquin Artists Agency, headquartered in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and with an office in Toronto run by Julien, now represents more than 150 artists for Canadian bookings.
The agency’s blue chip roster includes: Tegan and Sara, K’Naan, Serena Ryder, the Sheepdogs, Matt Andersen, Whitehorse, the Be Good Tanyas, the Strumbellas, Corb Lund, Old Crow Medicine Show, the Deep Dark Woods, and Adam Cohen; as well as Paquin Entertainment Group’s management clients, Randy Bachman, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Bachman & Turner, and Del Barber.
Currently, Paquin Artists Agency is gearing up for a sizzling hot summer booking season followed by an even hotter Fall with 2015 likely to be a banner year for the firm.”
