Veteran concert promoter Lenore Kinder, formerly of AEG Live/Presents, has joined Paradigm’s Nashville office as an agent.

Kinder spent more than a decade at AEG Nashville, joining in 2007 as a marketing intern and later booking North American tours by the likes of Adele, Mumford & Sons, the Lumineers, Imagine Dragons and Kacey Musgraves. She recently won the rising star award at the Pollstar Awards 2018 in Los Angeles.

“I’m thrilled to start a new chapter of my career at Paradigm,” says Kinder (picture), who moves into her new role at the agency on 2 April. “The last decade in the industry has prepped me to take my love for artist development to the next level. The office in Nashville has captured lightning in a bottle and I’m honoured to join their team.”

“In addition to being one of the most respected promoters in the business, Lenore’s energy and passion are boundless”

“We’re ecstatic to have Lenore joining us,” comments Paradigm Nashville office head Jonathan Levine. “In addition to being one of the most respected promoters in the business, with a knack for discovering and nurturing great talent, Lenore’s energy and passion are boundless. So too is her commitment to quality and attention to detail.”

Paradigm CEO Sam Gores adds: “As we continue to forge our own path as a company and stake our claim as the most progressive agency in Nashville, it’s uniquely talented people like Lenore Kinder that will enhance our outstanding team and help bring that vision to life.”
