Paquin Artists Agency Welcomes Music Agents Adam Kreeft and Rob Thornton




Toronto, ON – August 16, 2017 – Paquin Artists Agency (PAA) is pleased to announce the hiring of two new agents, Adam Kreeft and Rob Thornton.  Both Kreeft and Thornton will work out of the Toronto office, along with Sarah Litt, who will be taking on an assistant role at the agency.

"With Adam and Rob, we are welcoming two agents who bring a wealth of industry knowledge and experience to a team poised for tremendous growth,” says PAA President, Julien Paquin. “I’m confident that they will both effortlessly integrate into our team; and further foster Paquin's commitment to our artists – and their development – in collaboration with our strong relationships within the industry, as well as our dedication to building a strong music community in Canada.”

With an impassioned dedication to developing a diverse roster represented across international territories, Kreeft brings with him to Paquin an incredible group of artists including Dear Rouge, The Dirty Nil, Current Swell, Protest the Hero, and The Flatliners.

“I’m excited to join Paquin, an agency that embraces and embodies what I love about being an agent.  Passion for rock has always been my driving force, and Paquin will provide the gnarliest home for my clients,” remarks Kreeft, who built his business independently in Vancouver and Toronto before joining The Agency Group in 2012, and spending the latter years with UTA. “I’m really psyched to continue working alongside my longtime colleagues Rob Thornton and Sarah Litt, who will be making the move with me as well."

Thornton began his career promoting local punk bands in Oshawa, Ontario. His interest in promotion led him to Fat Wreck Chords Canada, where he coordinated nationwide publicity efforts for the label’s acts.  He moved into grassroots online and marketing services, participating in numerous campaigns for clients that included: The Gaslight Anthem, ZZ Top, and EMI. In 2007 he joined The Agency Group / United Talent Agency where he worked with Yukon Blonde, Hawksley Workman, Reuben and the Dark and many others.

Kreeft and Thornton are a welcomed addition to the PAA team, which works closely with a broad roster of national and international talent, such as: The Strumbellas, Serena Ryder Randy Bachman, The Sheepdogs, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Old Crow Medicine Show, Shakey Graves, and Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet.
