Music Works International (MWI), a Massachusetts-based jazz, R&B and world music agency, has made new appointments in its booking, sales and marketing teams.

Anngelle Wood, the organiser and host of Boston’s Rock & Roll Rumble and a DJ at classic rock station 100.7 WZLX, joins MWI’s marketing team, while Amanda Slaybaugh, most recently a junior booking agent with Madison House in Colorado, joins as an agent.

Mitchel Campbell, a recent music business graduate from the University of Hartford, rounds out the trio of hires, becoming an assistant in the agency’s sales team.

“We are excited that MWI’s growth affords us the opportunity to build our staff and bring more industry professionals into the fold,” comments director Katherine McVicker, a veteran IMN agent who founded MWI in 2014. “We are focused on taking the company to the next level.

“We are excited that MWI’s growth affords us the opportunity to build our staff and bring more industry professionals into the fold”

“We look forward to expanding our market reach and creating new networks of promoters in South America, Asia, Africa and the Pacific rim, as well as growing our roster of artists and special projects.”

MWI has over the past year added several new acts to its roster, including jazz pianists Monty Alexander and Aaron Diehl and Bokanté, the new world-music led by Snarky Puppy’s Michael League.

“While Aaron is seen as a jazz artist, he is also an acclaimed classical pianist who recently performed with the New York Philharmonic,” says MWI’s marketing director, David Greenberg. “And in other genres, there’s Bokanté, a band with three members of Snarky Puppy that really grooves deep in the world genre, Monty Alexander’s Harlem Kingston Express, a reggae/ska/jazz double trio, and Richard Bona’s Mandekan Cubano. These acts have opened MWI up to a new level of promoters and range of territories.”
