AUDIOPAXX & KOSHER ARE JOINING FORCES
Due to the unprecedented success of both companies, Kosher will be taking on Audiopaxx’s local bookings roster whilst Audiopaxx refocuses on management
After extending their services to include an impressive roster of bookings specific to both local and international talent late last year, ‘Kosher’ has spent the last 6 months making strides with note-worthy tours and shows – which today culminates in the merging of the ‘Audiopaxx’ and ‘Kosher’ agency rosters.
Managing Director and Head Agent of Kosher, Jon Debeere (formerly of Maker & Artist Voice) explains: “We’re absolutely thrilled about beginning this new chapter. With Audiopaxx’s roster joining the already strong family of artists here at Kosher, we are in a great position moving forward. We can’t wait to work with the talented team at Audiopaxx & Swerve to offer our growing roster an exceptional level of service whilst looking to the future in building one of Australasia’s strongest talent agencies.”
Kosher originally formed as a new offering from Jon Debeere and Josh McAuliffe of touring company Leibowitz & Weinberg in November 2014 and quickly dominated via forward thinking signings such as Dutch producer of the moment GANZ, LA via Melbourne electro pop diva Chela & esoteric beat-maker Chiefs.
Following a merger with Swerve Productions in June 2012, Audiopaxx shifted their focus from events to artist bookings; evolving into Audiopaxx Agency to specialise in domestic bookings, international touring for artists such as Klingande and Zeds Dead & corporate activations for clients like Microsoft and Red Bull. Simultaneously, they have become an industry leader in professional artist management with achievements that span from guiding Carmada to reach gold sales accreditation for their debut single ‘Maybe’, to coordinating worldwide tours for wunderkind Just A Gent at 17 years old.
Managing Director of Audiopaxx ‘Dominic Furber’ continues: “Jon brings to the table years of experience in the booking game, he has the highest attention to detail I have ever witnessed and is one of the hardest working agents in the country. This, combined with our business development history at Audiopaxx and Swerve Group, makes me truly excited to deliver an innovative, world class booking agency operating out of Australasia.”
As Audiopaxx further establishes itself in a managerial capacity, the new venture operating under the ‘Kosher’ banner led by directors Jon Debeere, Josh McAuliffe, Ignacio Garcia, Dominic Furber & Hadi Jowiehan endeavours to further the thriving Australian musical landscape by continuing to service cutting edge tours and furthermore, to open these opportunities to younger talent across multiple genres and levels of career.
