Jon Ollier launches One Fiinix Live24 November 2020 - Press release
Plans for New Live Booking Agency Revealed
“Now is the Time to Embrace the Change"
Jon Ollier the award-winning UK booking agent whose clients include Ed Sheeran, Anne-Marie, Lauv, 2Cellos and JC Stewart among others, has unveiled plans for a new, independent live booking agency.
Headquartered in London, One Fiinix Live has been launched following the end of his near six-year tenure at CAA, which was announced in October. As CEO of this new venture, Jon retains his personal roster and has set out a vision that includes providing a first-class service to his existing clients while investing time and resources in to developing new innovations and strategies to maximise opportunities in a post-COVID world.
Also joining Jon at One Fiinix Live will be Emma Davis, who was his long-time right-hand at CAA.
Jon started his career at booking agents Helter Skelter before moving to Free Trade Agency in 2008, where he began developing his own roster and working with artists such as Ed Sheeran, JP Cooper and Jamie Lawson. In 2015, he moved to CAA as a senior agent and expanded his roster to include Anne-Marie, Lauv, Calum Scott, 2Cellos and classical star Hauser among others.
Among his many achievements include the booking of Ed Sheeran’s ‘Divide’ tour, the highest grossing and best attended tour of all time, inclusion in Billboard Magazine’s “Power Players Impact List 2020”, the Music Week award for ‘Live Music Agent’ in 2016, alongside nominations for Pollstar Magazine’s annual ‘International Agent’ award.
Jon said, “After almost six years at CAA where I learned a huge amount from some inspirational colleagues I felt it was time to launch my own venture and realise the vision I had for a forward thinking, innovative agency that could empower artists and help them reach new audiences. It may seem counter intuitive, but I think this is uniquely good time to launch a new business as we enter the next phase for live music. There will be huge opportunities as we create new ways of thinking and I believe One Fiinix Live is poised to play a leading role in that positive disruption. We are keen to turn the current challenges we are all facing into possibilities and I encourage anyone who feels they have the same kind of mindset to reach out; now is the time to embrace the change.”
