Rob Wright cut his teeth in the music industry as an Alberta festival and event producer and in A&R for Stony Plain Records. But it was in the role of talent buyer for the New City Likwid Lounge that he established a reputation as the go-to guy in Edmonton. Developing strong relationships with The Feldman Agency’s agents eventually landed him a job offer with the agency. He joined TFA in 2005, where he’s found great satisfaction working with artists and their teams to build and sustain lifelong careers. Rob enjoys the challenge of working with non-traditional artists, such as spoken word artist Shane Koyczan, applying live music best practices to different mediums. Rob’s understanding of live shows runs deeper than his experience as a booking agent. He’s been a musician for over 20 years, performing regularly at venues of all sizes - from intimate artist run spaces to Rogers Arena. Rob is also the Vice President of Solidarity Rock, an artist-run not-for-profit organization that works to partner musicians and artists in Cuba, North America and beyond to create tour opportunities, secure musical equipment and more.
