After finishing his BA Hons in Music Business, Josh soon found work at the United Talent Agency, London – one of the biggest talent agencies in the world. After that, he began working at the Free Trade Agency, an international booking agent with an amazing roster of artists including The National, Father John Misty, St. Vincent and The War On Drugs.
His position at Free Trade has seen him work directly with acts such as Jungle, Los Campesinos!, Tei Shi, Titus Andronicus, Honeyblood & recent signings Rostam, Wavves & Cloud Nothings. His responsibilities include routing tours, updating schedules, contracting live appearances, setting up tour on-sales with promoters and artist management teams, plus ensuring the smooth operation from the show going on-sale through to post-show.
His day-to-day activities include updating artist schedules, ensuring artist media pages are kept up to date with the most recent band riders, press shots, bio’s, logo’s and backline.
Josh’s role at Free Trade is central to the wider range of the music industry, working closely alongside promoters (both regionally in the UK and internationally) as well as artists’ wider teams which includes management, record labels and their PR teams.
