iLA's own XP
Our collective efforts are targeted at the creation and maintenance of long-term, mutually rewarding associations with both the artist and our Industry contacts & partners. Because of this philosophy, it is absolutely essential that, prior to considering working with any artist, we establish that our thinking runs parallel with theirs.
We thrive on communication, 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.

iLA provides consulting services, development plans to up and coming acts and exclusive managerial representation partnerships. Over the years, iLA has proudly represented the professional interests of a wide range of genres and artists at all levels of their career.
