Seismic Talent’s Joel Siviour Makes IQ’s Annual Queer Pioneers List

Seismic Talent Agency’s founder, Joel Siviour, appears on IQ Magazine’s annual list of queer professionals making an impact in the global live music business.

The list features in the trade title’s second Pride edition.

The 20 people to make the cut this year were nominated by readers and verified by an “esteemed steering committee,” according to IQ.

The list includes agents, promoters, tour managers, marketing managers and more.

Among the 2022 honorees are Ticket Swap’s James Fleury, Live Nation Sweden’s Jonas Sjödén, UTA’s Nikos Kazoleas, and Ticketmaster’s Troy Suda.

Siviour – who is the only Australian to make the list – has worked in the music biz for nearly a decade, starting as a booking agent assistant in 2013 at Archery Club.

He then arrived Select Music as part of a merger, where he moved into a booking agent role working with Crooked Colours, KLP, Client Liaison, Miami Horror, Torren Foot and more.

Siviour made the decision to move to boutique electronic agency Falcona in 2017, where he headed the business’s agency division and worked with club favourites Alison Wonderland, Running Touch, Young Franco, GRAACE and Pendulum.

He left Falcona in 2020 as the pandemic hit Australia’s shores, and against all odds launched Seismic Talent Agency with a gender parity roster and big ambitions.

At launch, the Seismic Talent roster included Alison Wonderland, Example, The Presets, Running Touch, George Maple, Young Franco, and more.

“I’ve witnessed plenty of virtue-signalling from within our industry, but when push comes to shove there are companies whose actions don’t align with the values they claim to hold,” the young entrepreneur told IQ.

Siviour was also a finalist in the 2021 TMN 30 Under 30 Awards.
