Michael Kline Artists is an international management and booking agency representing musicians at the very height of their artistry, and artists who aspire to reach those heights. We provide personalized, individual attention to both the musicians we represent, and the presenters we service by focusing our attention on artists whom we believe in strongly, and whom we think will leave a lasting legacy in this music.
In 1992, Michael began work as a jazz dee-jay on the highly respected and influential “voice of New Orleans,” WWOZ. By 1997, he combined his work at the station with his work as the in-house booking agent for Burgess Management, handling the booking agency duties for artists such as Terence Blanchard, Charlie Haden, Lizz Wright, Claudia Acuna and others. Post Katrina, Michael returned to the East coast and opened Michael Kline Artists, which now represents Grammy Award Winners, Guggenheim Fellows, NEA Jazz Masters, and Down Beat Poll Winners.
