Jazz-focused US boutique booking agency Music Works International (MWI) has made another round of hires, bring on board two new agents and an assistant to support its growing roster.

Italian agent and promoter Luigi Sidero, a veteran of the European jazz scene, will assume responsibility for MWI’s bookings in eastern Europe, while Katie Hattier, a recent music business management graduate from Berklee College of Music, has been appointed a junior agent, focusing on developing artists and cultivating relationships with international clients, primarily in the UK.

The newest addition to the team, meanwhile, is Madeline Miller, another Berklee graduate, who joins as assistant to the director.

Boston-based MWI has additionally announced the signing of Jonah Nilsson, frontman and keyboardist in Swedish jazz-funk trio Dirty Loops, who recently signed for management duties with Quincy Jones’s Quincy Jones Productions.

“Our dedication to building audiences on a global scale is having an impact”

“Signing a unique talent like Jonah Nilsson is exciting,” comments Katherine McVicker, who founded Music Works International in 2014. “We are intent on curating a roster of world-class talent, expanding into new genres and developing artists. Our dedication to building audiences on a global scale is having an impact.”

She adds: “It is a privilege to work closely with Quincy’s management team.”

MWI last summer made three hires after adding new acts including Bokanté, the new world-music outfit led by Snarky Puppy’s Michael League, and jazz pianists Monty Alexander and Aaron Diehl to its roster.
