Wheelhouse Agency has launched, a new booking agency backed by Chugg Music, Select Music and country music manager Dan Biddle.

Biddle will maintain his role as special project manager at Chugg Music and Dan Biddle Management, and take on co-head of Wheelhouse Agency. Alongside him as co-head will be Rob Giovannoni, who also maintains his role of senior agent at Select Music.

Katie Krollig will join Wheelhouse as lead agent while continuing to service her roster of Select Music clients.

It launches with an extensive roster of clients including Amy Sheppard, Casey Barnes, James Blundell, Loren Ryan and Shannon Noll.

Chugg noted the experience of the team backing the new outfit, which also includes Chugg Music’s Andrew Stone and Select Music’s Stephen Wade.

“The growth of country music in Australia over the last few years has been well documented and it was clear that the market needed a new agency to service the many great new artists coming through along with the established artists who are kicking major goals,” he said.

“With our many decades of experience across all facets of live touring, combined with our knowledge of the country music industry, there is no better team in Australia to help artists develop their live careers and grow their audiences.”

Henry Wagons, who is also joining the Wheelhouse Agency roster, added: “I’m excited to be in the sublime twangy company Wheelhouse have corralled. What a great broad ranging stable for live country music of all shapes and sizes.”

The new agency noted that consumption of country music had increased significantly over the past decade and has become a global leader in ticket sales, streaming figures and social followers.

“Wheelhouse Agency promises to deliver the best serviced country and Americana agency that has been sorely missed in the current marketplace,” it promised on launch today.

Last month, it was revealed Select Music had hired Darren Aboud as chief operating officer.
