Gazing Into The Future

Podell Talent Agency’s Jonny Podell has first-hand experience with the highs and lows of the music industry and what it takes to handle it, which has led to a change in how he deals with the high-stress job of an agent.

Podell credits his friend, Tracie Martyn, for introducing him to Croatian native Braco (pronounced Braht-zoh), which means “Little Brother,” and his method of healing by just gazing at an audience without a word.

Braco’s method has spawned strong opinions, bad and good, in the media as well as drawing a crowd wherever he goes.

But much like the entertainment industry, in one’s spiritual search there’s something for everyone.

“I was already into my spiritual journey of transformation when I experienced ‘the gaze’ of Braco for five minutes. It was in a crowded ballroom in a NYC hotel,” Podell told Pollstar. “I watched a woman have an awakening in mind, body and spirit. She was ‘lit up’ like the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Plaza Christmas week.

“I saw Braco’s light and it helped me see the light in me and all others. I bring that light to all my endeavors and life is more beautiful, stress-free and rewarding … in every way.”
