Jason is an incredible agent with an amazing roster of bands, and we’re excited to have him join the team,” STG co-founder Matt Andersen said in a statement.
Parent adds, “I have known Dave, Tim, and Matt since I started booking bands and tours in 2010. We have talked about working together many times, but this time it finally worked out and I couldn’t be happier to be here. They have built something amazing and all my colleagues here are wonderful and creative agents. I look forward to utilizing the full team here at STG to grow my clients to the next level.”
