BPT’s Featured Producer: Kevin Sur from Artist Home

Kevin Sur is the co-founder of Artist Home, a Seattle-based booking agency that’s been making waves in the Northwest music scene with their unique approach to event production. He is also the talent buyer for the Columbia City Theater , a beautiful and historic 300-capacity venue in South Seattle. Since Artist Home took over the venue in 2010, they have transformed the once-struggling venue into what SPIN magazine calls “The city’s finest sounding room” and one that artists now clamor to perform in, despite its out-of-the-way location. Since Kevin’s been at the theater, many bands have experienced their first sold out shows, including The Head and the Heart, who are now making waves nationally after signing to legendary local label Sub Pop and appearing on Conan.

Kevin got his start in the Bay Area DIY punk scene, booking shows with bands he dug. He brought that approach to booking with him to Seattle and to Artist Home, which was established in 2008. Artist Home strives to create unique events that stand out from the norm. Whether it be focusing on niche genres, creating family-friendly events featuring music everyone can enjoy, or producing unique music festivals, Artist Home are a booking agency that thinks outside of the box. They’re also clearly passionate about their events and the bands they book; that passion shines through in everything that they do. Read the rest of this entry »
