Riot Artists, Agent

USA

Bill Smith started Eye for Talent – now Riot Artists – in 1997. Initially working with two local artists, he soon reached out to artists already prominent in their respective cultures to tour them in North America. Some of the first artists represented were Olodum, Jorge Ben Jor from Brazil, and Ad Vielle Que Pourra from Quebec. More recent tours included Salif Keita, King Sunny Ade, Ana Moura, Hermeto Pascoal, Egberto Gismonti, Tinariwen, DakhaBrakha, Maarja Nuut, and more. In addition to North America, the agency also now books in Europe, Australia/NZ, Latin America & Asia.
