Stewart Entertainment Business Team:
Brad Stewart: Business Manager/Personal Manager / President of US & International Touring / Chief Marketing and Business Development Officer / Publisher / Consultant
With nearly 2 decades of experience in booking international touring acts, Stewart has worked with many amazing talents, such as icons Leon Russell and Ten Years After; blues giants Bobby Blue Bland and Walter Trout; jam scene heroes like Marc Ford (former lead guitarist of the Black Crowes), The Heavy Pets, Yo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band, Monophonics, and the Honey Island Swamp Band.
Along the way, Stewart earned a reputation as a professional with integrity, a strong work ethic, and the vision to promote a positive evolution of change in booking operations. Since Brad started as a hard-core music fan, the very foundation of Stewart Entertainment is based on his empathy for artists and helping them to flourish. He was exposed to all types of roots and rock music while growing up in Mississippi and understood early on that music exerts a strong gravitational pull.
Armed with a degree in marketing, he moved to Charlotte, NC, scouring the landscape for a music business position that would allow him to work with and for artists in a meaningful way. He found that at Intrepid Artists. “I took on a lot of responsibility very quickly, handling booking for a large roster of artists in the northeast United States and Canada. Ultimately he became steeped in every aspect of the business. Nashville’s burgeoning music scene dictated Stewart’s move from Charlotte and makes Music City the perfect home for Stewart Entertainment, LLC. “I see a tremendous opportunity today for artists who have the support they need in place.”
