Talent Booking Agent Darlene Deluna, Talks Working With New Clients And Rich The Kid
HEY DARLENE! THANKS FOR TAKING THE TIME TO CHAT WITH US! PLEASE SHARE WITH US THE NAME OF YOUR AGENCY AND SOME MORE INFORMATION ABOUT WHAT YOU DO?
My agency is The Signature Bookings, we are a Indie Talent agency located in Los Angeles. We specialize in signing new talent, the A&R side of bookings. I really love to seek out the new hottest talent, and help them grow into the next stages of their careers.
DARLENE WHO SOME OF YOUR CURRENT CLIENTS AT SIGNATURE BOOKINGS?
To be honest I feel like we have the hottest new talent on our roster, Strick, A.D., Billyracxx, Ebleu, Lil HBK are a few of our newest clients. It’s just a matter of time before they are all household names. We also just signed some amazing producers recently Stevie Knocks and Beazie Beats, definitely going into that direction as well. We have our Major label guys as well like Rich the Kid, Ambjaay and Fivio Foreign.
HOW HAVE YOUR CLIENTS BEEN TAKING THE CHANGES, REGARDING THE BOOKING BUSINESS DURING THE PANDEMIC?
It’s been rough for literally everyone the entire entertainment community are all going through the same motions. We are all navigating through it. As far as my clients they want to get back to work, they miss performing they miss their fans! I was literally joking with Rich the kid about how he was never going to miss a show again. Btw he always makes his shows (laughing) but you know things happen every now and then. They all just want to get back to work ASAP.
YOU MENTIONED RICH THE KID, HOW IS IT WORKING WITH HIM?
Man he’s one of the funniest, driven guys I know. He honestly is family at this point. He’s a overachiever extremely driven and works his ass off to be where he is at. He really is a Businessman, CEO. He deserves where he’s at. Its been amazing working with him over the years. A Blessing.
WHAT MOMENT IN YOUR CAREER DO YOU LOOK BACK MOST FONDLY ON?
My proudest moments so far have been watching my clients develop from beginning stages of their careers, to where they are now. Charting, receiving gold and platinum plaques, selling out shows and tours etc. it’s been incredible to see and know we helped them get to that point. Honestly we are just getting started and I cannot wait to see where all my new clients are in the next year!
