Rob Wright

Rob Wright got his start in the music industry in 1996, first by performing and soon after promoting independent concerts in Edmonton, AB. His time there included several years as Talent Buyer & Promotions Manager at the New City Likwid Lounge, a stint at Stony Plain Records, and festival and event logistics. In 2006 he joined SL Feldman & Associates as an agent and has worked closely with rising stars and established staples alike such as Mother Mother, We Are The City, Joel Plaskett, Colin James, Kyuss and many more. His role at the agency has expanded in recent years, including buying talent and consulting for festivals and corporate events. A musician at heart, Wright continues to play regularly in his free time. He is also Vice President of Solidarity Rock, an artist run not-for-profit organization with chapters throughout North America and Cuba. Since 2008 Solidarity Rock has been working to partner musicians, artists and creative people in Cuba, Canada and beyond, producing tours of Cuba, and also collecting instruments for Cuban rock bands in need, allowing them to express themselves and find their own way through music.
