Based in the rainy-yet-beautiful English Lake District, Regent Music was set up in 2012 by Phil Simpson, after 3 years working with Adastra – the long-standing and well respected agency based in East Yorkshire.
The new company was formed from a love & passion for the job and a desire to represent & develop acts in the Acoustic/Folk/Roots genres in the UK and overseas.
Regent Music might have been a new venture, but Phil is by no means a newcomer to the music industry, having previously booked tours for top names such as Lúnasa, Juan Martin, and Colin Hay. Phil has been promoting gigs, organising & programming festivals since the age of 16, and is a musician himself in his spare (!) time.
Regent Music organises & co-ordinates tours, festival appearances & one-off concerts for its acts – with a passion, huge attention to detail, and a ‘developing’ and career-building ethos.
In early 2015, Regent Music announced a new collaboration with Graham Smout from GPS Music Artists, and well-respected agent Graham brought with him some fantastic new names to the roster, including Michael Chapman, The Coal Porters and Rod Clements.
