Agent at One Fiinix Live.

One Fiinix Live, the independent live music agency launched at the end of last year by Jon Ollier, has hired Jess Kinn as agent.

Kinn, whose appointment is effective immediately, joins One Fiinix Live from live music streaming specialists LIVENow and was previously an agent at Paradigm Agency, where her client base included Mallrat, Years & Years and Rebecca Garton. 
“At this stage it is unclear which of her previous clients will be joining her,” the hiring announcement states.
Born in London, Kinn started her career in live music with The Leighton-Pope Organisation before joining Paradigm Agency where she worked her way up from reception to agent. 
As a booker she worked across acts including Shawn Mendes, Halsey, Alan Walker and Faithless before becoming an agent in her own right.
In 2018, Kinn was named as LIVE UK’s ‘Backstage Star’ and a Music Week ‘Rising Star.’ In 2020 she headed up events for LIVENow working on live streams for The Pete Tong Heritage Orchestra, Gorillaz and the Dua Lipa Studio 2054 livestream, which broke a paid ticket sales record at the time.
Kinn will report directly to Jon Ollier, whose clients include Ed Sheeran, Anne-Marie, Lauv, 2Cellos and JC Stewart among others.
Said Ollier, “Jess is everything we are looking for as we build our new business. She is an exciting and forward-thinking talent with a fantastic reputation, and we are really thrilled to have her join us. I believe she has a huge future ahead of her and I am excited to be a part of it!”
Kinn added, “On my first conversation with Jon we immediately clicked over our shared values and ideas about the future of the live industry. Being part of a growing agency with progressive and innovative thinking at its heart is exactly where I want to be in this ever-changing landscape of live events.”
