Rees Joins M.P.I.

The M.P.I. Talent Agency recently expanded with the addition of Rich Rees, an agent formerly with Earthtone Music, who has brought five clients with him.

Rees represents 10,000 Maniacs, Ambrosia, Asia Feat. John Payne, The Young Dubliners and Stan Ridgeway.

“M.P.I. is a smaller agency but we’ve always had a wide-ranging roster, from Peter Cetera to Bobby Vinton to Suzanne Somers to Richard Marx,” agency CEO Mike Pick told Pollstar.

“Now we have a roster of 33 clients. We’re finding there’s a great place for an agency like ours because the larger agencies can’t give the personal attention and representation to some of these artists.”

Rees will be based out of M.P.I.’s Los Angeles office.
