Primary Talent


London-based booking agency Primary Talent has announced an alliance with LA-based talent agency group ICM Partners. Primary Talent will continue to operate pretty much autonomously, but says the tie-up with ICM will allow it to offer its clients “all the benefits of a major agency”. Meanwhile ICM will “greatly enhance its footprint and presence in the international music touring business”.

Sony/ATV has signed once of those worldwide publishing deals you guys keep banging on about with songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Ian Fitchuk. He’s written and produced music for the likes of James Bay, Kesha, Shania Twain, Shawn Mendes, Amy Grant, Jake Bugg and many more. Sony/ATV say that they are “beyond THRILLED” about the deal. Though I’m not sure where that is. Croydon maybe.
