Paladin Artists is a talent and literary agency with offices currently in New York, Los Angeles, and London. Our mission includes providing hands-on professional care and a commitment to our clients.

We currently represent clients in the fields of music, live performances, new media, literary, branded entertainment, and touring exhibitions. We arrange individual engagements as well as full-scale tours for our clients, in both indoor and outdoor venues and spaces, throughout the world. We additionally engage in the recruitment, training, and management of new artist representatives as well as in the acquisition of new and established performing talent, who are looking for a more personalized and dedicated approach for their careers.

The company was recently founded by two veterans of the industry, Steve Martin and Andy Somers, along with strategic partnership alliances with Wayne Forte of Entourage Talent Associates and Karrie Goldberg of The Kagency. Both Steve and Andy have shared a vision musically since they joined The Agency Group nearly two decades ago. The foursome has additionally shared friendships both personally and professionally for many years.

Our goal is to build a culture that will galvanize an era of development, growth, and productivity in the entertainment industry. As we curate, expand and implement strong work ethics, we will strive to engage and impact the industry one step at a time.
