Los Angeles, CA (July 13, 2018)—Canada’s Core Music Agency has announced an expansion into the US with the addition of agent Kevin Estwick to be based in Los Angeles, and the launch of a new games- and VR-focused division headed by agent Trish Klein.
These additions come on the heels of a year in which the agency has grown with the signing of eight additional composers and an expanding list of projects. Founded in 2007 by former film composer Ari Wise, Core represents a roster of screen composers, music producers and editors who create original music for film, television, video games and virtual reality productions. The agency is developing its roster to bring on more US-based international (UK, EU and Canadian) composers, as well as composers with specialization in the games and interactive media industries.
Estwick, raised in Southern California, has been working in audio since 1997, and comes to Core with a background in media composer representation. He lived in New York City for more than a decade where he earned a B.A. in International Politics from Columbia University, and an M.A. in Arts and Public Policy from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, also studying film scoring and entertainment law. In 2015, he moved back to Southern California and started working with an A-list composer agency in Calabasas, CA before founding his own composer management company, Sterling Film Music.
Klein began her professional career as a multi-instrumentalist and recording artist with the alt-folk band The Be Good Tanyas, a project she co-founded in 1999. Her writing and production credits span 18 years and 10 international releases. Her musical work has been included in various film productions including Breaking Bad, The L Word, Weeds and the title song for the 20th Century Fox feature film Because of Winn-Dixie. In 2014, she launched her own company, Hidden City Records.
