KALM Talent Group: Innovative Agency for Artists
USA- Los Angeles, CA | Sep 13 2012 | (22:56:15 - EDT)
In a world where fresh talent is being discovered and fostered in progressive new ways including on television, reality shows and the Internet, the time – and need -- for an innovative up-to-date talent agency has arrived...and it’s name is KALM Talent Group.
Formed by accomplished entrepreneur and philanthropist Kerry Kessel with a “times have changed and so must the way we do business” mindset, forward-thinking Kessel created KALM to complement the evolving music industry.
Inspired by the quality and range of untapped talent and the success of such young powerhouses as Justin Bieber whose rise to fame began on You Tube, Kessel built KALM Talent Group upon a model of “extreme interactivity.”
In addition to traditional methods of discovering new talent, KALM heavily utilizes the power of the Internet for everything from discovering and auditioning perspective clients to presenting the gifts of its signed hot young artists to major record labels via the KALM Talent Agency Website.
“I am thrilled to introduce KALM Talent Group to the music industry and aspiring artists worldwide who have the ability to become the superstars they were born to be. We have worked diligently to create an environment where remarkable talent can develop their skills, personally and as artists, and find not only their voice but a worldwide audience to share it with,” said Kessel.
With the formation of KALM, he successfully blended his keen business sense and desire to help others with his life-long passion for music. “This is the KALM before the storm as we make history and re-define the art of artist management and take it to the next level in the present and future.”
Further reflecting KALM’s relevance in today’s music scene is the creation of RETAKE, a division of the agency dedicated to signing former television talent show contestants. Offering them another chance at following their passion and achieving their goals, RETAKE presents talented artists who competed in shows such as American Idol, The Voice and America's Got Talent with a viable shot at a recording deal.
“One need only to think of Jackie Evancho, for example, who at 10 years old finished in second place on America's Got Talent in 2010 and went on to sell nearly two million units of her next three albums,” continued Kessel about the abundance of raw talent, that includes the likes of Academy Award winner, singer and spokesperson Jennifer Hudson, exhibited on these shows.
“This type of god-given talent not only deserves but demands to be shared with the world. KALM is proud to be the conduit that connects these artists with the industry and the world.”
Another artist destined for greatness that has KALM excited is its just signed country singer/songwriter Lexi Ulmer, who counts Taylor Swift among her musical heroes. The 17-year-old soon-to-be sensation, who starred in the critically-acclaimed independent short film, Blake's Ballad, for which she also composed two original songs, was discovered by Kessel after posting videos of herself singing her original songs on various social media Websites.
Known as a leading entrepreneur with a network of high-profile connections in areas ranging from entertainment to business to social communities, Kessel maintains a prolific portfolio of wise investments.
In addition to KALM Talent Group, Kessel remains a major investor in the acclaimed restaurant Chazz: A Bronx Original inBaltimore. Named after and developed by one of Kessel’s close friends Oscar-nominated actor Chazz Palminteri, Chazz: A Bronx Original has redefined the Italian American culinary experience.
Among his many distinctions, Kessel and his wife Maria, daughter of National Enquirer founder Generoso Pope, Jr. and Lois Pope, are ardent philanthropists, working alongside the likes of fellow humanitarians and friends including Billy Baldwin and family Donald Trump and Michelle Phillips.
