The History and Culture of iLA:
Our collective efforts aim to create and maintain long-term, mutually rewarding associations with the artist and our Industry contacts and partners. Because of this philosophy, it is essential that, before considering working with any artist, we establish that our thinking runs parallel with theirs.
We thrive on transparency, honesty, and common sense and strive to be as flexible and responsive to artists’ needs as possible. That is perhaps the most pronounced advantage to a competent smaller agency: the artist’s confidence that, in their agent, they have a dedicated long-term consultant who will represent them as they wish to be represented.
