Founded by industry titans Grant Paley (formerly Paquin Agency) and Nick Middleton (Westwood Recordings, The Funk Hunters), Midnight Agency is Canada’s new premier music and arts agency. Created by artists, for artists, the dynamic boutique agency represents a highly diverse roster of 30+ artists hailing from all corners of the globe, reaching across various genres including hip-hop, funk, folk, blues, and electronic. A unique new venture focusing on the intersection of live music, tech, and streaming, Midnight Agency strives to expand opportunities for artists beyond the typical realms of live performance during a time of touring uncertainty in an ever-changing market. With a strong emphasis on putting power back in the hands of the artist, Midnight Agency puts the creative vision first, always.
“We are proud to be the first new independent agency to launch in Canada since COVID-19 suspended live music, Midnight is about taking back control for our artists, building new revenue streams and navigating the ever-changing demands of how to deliver art and shared music experiences in a post-COVID era.” – Co-founder / CEO Nick Middleton
“After many years working to just find the gigs, I felt compelled to create an agency where working with an artist to fulfill their vision was a top priority. I really missed being a creative person. Our roster at Midnight Agency represents some of the most forward thinking, diverse and technologically savvy individuals I’ve ever met. I look forward to pushing the boundaries with them and changing the way live music experiences integrate with today’s fast moving online platforms and strategies.” – Grant Paley, Co-founder & President
