From Marshall to Trust

The ex-Marshall Live Agency head, Stuart Vallans has gone solo and opened TRUST. Artists, a brand new boutique agency, focused on developing artist’s careers across the UK and Europe.

With over 20 years experience of developing and booking bands, Stuart Vallans has parted ways with Marshall, taking the live agency arm of the business with him. Having created and grown the live agency over the last 4 years, now was the time to fly the nest and allow the agency to progress even further.

Commenting on the switch, TRUST. Artists owner Stuart Vallans said “My vision for TRUST. spans back nearly 2 decades, having worked with many incredible artists and many, many talented industry professionals, I’ve always wanted to do things my own way. The new agency is being built using the model of many of my friends’ European boutique agencies; working with a smaller roster of bands, but having tighter relationships with them. I personally believe there is always a better way of doing things, a much more agile way of booking shows, something I will be working on at TRUST. to further all my artists’ careers”

TRUST. Artists launches with a roster that includes The Meffs, Gallus, Cucamaras, Hotel Lux, Snake Eyes, Carsick, Aiko and many more. Discussing the agency, The Meffs said “From day one of being our agent, Stu got behind The Meffs and everything we stand for. We’re a team. Nothing has ever been too much trouble and no opportunity has ever been too big to fight for. Stu’s famous phrase is ‘let me dig in’ and we never have doubt that he’s going to DIG! Trust is the core value that bands need from an agency, and it’s guaranteed with this diamond”
