You will love it live!

Owner and agent, Genevieve (Genny) DeMerchant is a passionate, performing arts  professional with over 15 years experience in marketing and development prior to venturing into the world of "agenting". 

She gets excited about helping artists develop their personal brand and crafting effective marketing tools to help grow their profile and career.  She understands the important role these tools play for presenters when making decisions to book an artist for their festival or event. 

When not at her desk, Genny is most likely out walking her awesome dog (Haydn), sneaking in a few minutes of yoga or creating something new and tasty in the kitchen.

The aforementioned "Awesome Dog"

Who also enjoys sneaking in a little yoga from time to time, or at least hanging out on the mat.  As you can see, he has mastered savasana :)
