Alliance Artist Management’s Founder/President Rob Robbins is pleased to announce a new collaboration with artist manager Marc Baylin of Baylin Artists Management. Beginning in the 2021-22 season, Alliance will be the North American management for Actors From The London Stage, Cirque Mechanics, Danú, Julie Fowlis, L.A. Theatre Works, and Nobuntu. Marc Baylin will work with Alliance in a consulting role during the transition and beyond.
The two companies’ founders have long held one another in high regard. The complementary philosophies, commitment, and artist rosters make this collaboration a natural fit. With Baylin Artists closing up shop after the 2020-21 season, Marc Baylin looks forward:
I’ve known and respected Rob for 30+ years and as I started to wind down my company, I thought Alliance would be a terrific landing pad for a select set of artists and companies. I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to stay involved with these artists and some of my presenter colleagues.
With the expanded roster, Alliance is very happy to welcome Jenny Palmer to the team as attractions manager and booking representative. Palmer brings over 20 years of artist management experience, including 16 years at IMG Artists.
Alliance Artist Management has carved out a unique and distinct position in the world of ensemble and chamber music touring. Its roster boasts some of today’s most distinguished artists including Jordi Savall, Spektral Quartet, The Tallis Scholars, The Crossing, Venice Baroque Orchestra, Sō Percussion, and Camerata RCO. In addition to the new artists from the Baylin roster, Alliance has also added The Gesualdo Six and Ruckus to it’s expanding roster of early music and vocal ensembles. Michael “Mic” Herring, recently promoted to artist manager, will lead the efforts for these two ensembles as part of his expanding role within the company.
Rob Robbins looks forward to a bright future:
At a time when we are hunkered down and pulling back, it’s especially exciting to expand the breadth and diversity of our roster. Jenny Palmer, with her decades of experience touring attractions and theatrical projects, will be central to our move forward, while Mic Herring continues to grow in his role managing early music and chamber ensembles.
This is the kind of roster I imagined when Alliance Artist Management opened nearly 14 years ago on the eve of the great recession. Working with Marc Baylin in his capacity of senior advisor, I am confident we will navigate through this storm and emerge stronger than ever.
