Sozo Artists Management Company Representing DJ Spooky, Bandaloop, Lil Buck & More
Sozo Media, a leading international performing arts consultancy, today announced its expansion plans to provide a comprehensive platform for artists. The newly formed boutique agency, SOZO ARTISTS, INC., augments Sozo Media's long tradition of managing the careers of the world's most prominent performing artists and institutions with Booking, Marketing, PR Consultation and Tour Management all under one roof.
In recognition of the diversity of its artists and of previously untapped opportunities to reach new audiences worldwide, SOZO ARTISTS extends beyond convention to fill a vacancy in the ever-evolving cultural marketplace. While providing a full range of services SOZO will also extend its artists' reach and connection to social entrepreneurs and like minded corporations. "This is a natural evolution," explains Rika Iino, President and Founder of SOZO ARTISTS. "We wanted to design a company that reflects the changes in how audiences connect with artists and recognize themselves through their art. Sozo artists and organizations will now be empowered to maximize the resources, the tools, concepts and intrinsic knowledge our company embodies throughout all stages of career from inception to mastery."
With the philosophies and practices she honed at Sozo Media, Iino continues the company legacy of discovery and innovative development for the next generation artist with global reach, a deep commitment to arts advocacy, and a seamless connection to the worlds of advertising, design, technology and other industries. Musical America notes that, "it is clear that her [Iino's] broad range of skills and uncanny intuition for emerging artistic trends allows a partnership [with her clients] that is quite different from the traditional manager/artist relationship."
