LOS ANGELES (Top40 Charts/ Agency Group) - Jack Ross, Senior Vice President of The Agency Group Canada is proud to announce the signing of one of the country's most beloved and accomplished musicians, Bruce Cockburn.
Bruce Cockburn's career includes 30 albums, 20 gold and platinum records in Canada, and countless concert performances since he released his first solo work in 1970. He has received many honours, including inductions to the Canadian Music Hall of Fame and the Canadian Broadcast Hall of Fame, he was made a Member of the Order of Canada in 1982 and has since been promoted to 'Officer', and he was recognized with the Tenco Award for Lifetime Achievement in Italy. His hit songs like Lovers in a Dangerous Time and Wondering Where the Lions Are have become staples of the Canadian soundtrack.
"I have been a lifelong Bruce Cockburn fan and it is an honour and a thrill to represent Bruce for live engagements." - Jack Ross
As a long-time client of music business legend Bernie Finkelstein (True North Records), Bruce Cockburn has not had an exclusive Canadian agent in his 35+ years of touring until now.
"Both Bruce and myself are looking forward to working with Jack and The Agency Group. Jack has proven himself to not only be a great agent but also a brilliant strategist and we're happy to be part of the team." - Bernie Finkelstein
