Jon Ollier, the award-winning UK live agent for the likes of Ed Sheeran, Anne-Marie, Lauv, 2Cellos and JC Stewart and others, is launching a new independent live booking agency, called One Fiinix Live
Headquartered in London, One Fiinix Live has been launched following the end of Ollier’s near six-year tenure at CAA, which was announced in October.
As CEO of this new venture, Ollier retains his personal roster. Also joining him at the new company will be Emma Davis, who was his long-time right-hand at CAA.
Ollier started his career at booking agents Helter Skelter before moving to Free Trade Agency in 2008, where he began developing his own roster and working with artists such as Ed Sheeran, JP Cooper and Jamie Lawson.
In 2015, Ollier moved to CAA as a Senior Agent and expanded his roster to include Anne-Marie, Lauv, Calum Scott, 2Cellos and classical star Hauser among others.
Among his many achievements include the booking of Ed Sheeran’s Divide tour, the highest grossing and best attended tour of all time.
“There will be huge opportunities as we create new ways of thinking and I believe One Fiinix Live is poised to play a leading role in that positive disruption.”
Jon Ollier said: “After almost six years at CAA where I learned a huge amount from some inspirational colleagues I felt it was time to launch my own venture and realise the vision I had for a forward thinking, innovative agency that could empower artists and help them reach new audiences.
“It may seem counter intuitive, but I think this is uniquely good time to launch a new business as we enter the next phase for live music.
Added Ollier: “There will be huge opportunities as we create new ways of thinking and I believe One Fiinix Live is poised to play a leading role in that positive disruption.
“We are keen to turn the current challenges we are all facing into possibilities and I encourage anyone who feels they have the same kind of mindset to reach out; now is the time to embrace the change.”Music Business Worldwide
