Paradigm Talent Agency
Music Executive Leadership Group
Veteran booking agent Tom Windish has developed the touring careers of some of the hottest names in music, including Lorde, Billie Eilish, alt-J, The xx, M83, King Krule, and more. Working with these artists and other top talent from the early days of their careers, hundreds of clients have grown from playing small local venues to dominating stages at major festivals and arenas under his purview.
Universally recognized as one of the industry’s most successful music agents, Windish joined Paradigm in 2017 from The Windish Agency, which he started in his Chicago apartment and built into an unstoppable industry force with a staff of more than 80 in six cities. The highly acclaimed agency won Pollstar’s Independent Booking Agency of the Year Award three times and received seven nominations. A three-time nominee for Pollstar Agent of the Year himself, Windish has been honored, either individually or as a member of Paradigm’s Music Executive Group, on Billboard’s Power 100 List every year from 2014 through 2018.
