BarrelHouse Talent was formed in 2017 as a booking agency with a vision to work with acts that make us smile. Not just anyone, but those acts we would pay to see lIVE.
We ended the booking portion of the business in late 2018 and now focus on the role of management, tour support, brand promotion and more.
