Jason Edwards

(CODA Agency)

Jason Edwards is a booking agent at Coda (who represent the likes of Disclosure, Bastille, Ellie Goulding, the XX and The Vaccines) working with a diverse roster of younger acts including Grimes, Temples, SOHN and Blood Orange. He moved there from 13 Artists, Brighton, in October 2013 after a 3 year stint. He is also the music programmer for Festival Number 6 in Wales.

He has been a booking agent since 2009 when he started an agency from his bedroom in Glasgow after a short stint experimenting with management, club promotion, DJing and press plugging after moving from Edinburgh shortly after his 18th birthday.

Other stops along the way have included managing the PR for dodgy RnB club nights, co-ordinating the music and club programme for legendary venue The Arches and stage managing shows in a backpackers hostel in Edinburgh.
