Madison House Taps Jon Bell To Lead Nashville Office, Adds Two Agents

Independent agency Madison House has tapped Jon Bell to lead its Nashville office and added Lee Huber and Mike Kaiz as agents.

“As with any small business coming out of the pandemic, we have experienced tremendous growth and opportunity in the live touring industry. Being able to tap Jon Bell who is incredibly well respected in the industry and was previously the co-head of Nashville is a key part of mine and Nadia Prescher’s vision. Jon will continue to help lead the critical mission of expanding our Nashville presence. Concurrently, we also brought on four additional team members, including two agents – Lee Huber who joins us from Odyssey Touring, Mike Kaiz from Skyline, a new business manager Steph Belcher, and Ashleigh Neilio as an agent assistant. These are just the continued signs of how excited we are for the future at the agency. You can expect the dream to be alive for many years to come,” managing partner Adam Bauer said.

“I’m proud of the commitment Madison House has made to the Nashville market since joining in 2019, a scene I have been a part of for the last 17 years,” Bell said. “We have a great team assembled here that share common goals and the right attitude. We look forward to expanding our footprint even further in Nashville and beyond with other like-minded industry professionals.”

Huber began his career in the industry as the talent buyer and general manager of Nashville venue The Country and The Local before moving to Atomic Music Group and Odyssey touring. His roster includes Thelma and The Sleaze, a Nashville-based all-woman Southern rock band.

“Joining the team at Madison House is a career goal of mine that is 15 years in the making,” Kaiz says. “I am thrilled to bring my roster to an agency with a rich history, and I look forward to the opportunity to contribute to its bright future.”

Kaiz’s roots and Americana-heavy roster includes genre-fusers Stillhouse Junkies.
