The Soroka Agency is a boutique creative artist agency, co-founded by Ryan Soroka and Brad Wiseman, which offers full tour booking services to independent and established artists.
Soroka began promoting shows at just 13 years old in his hometown of North Caldwell, NJ, where he would rent out VFW Halls to host local shows. By high school, he was able to foster such a consistent community of music fans, that larger national acts began drawing to the area, leading him to bigger and better opportunities and the decision to switch gears and begin booking national tours for bands.
Soroka went on to graduate from the Wharton School of Business at University of Pennsylvania, all while booking bands and developing his own agency, turning his once part-time hobby into a full-fledged career and quickly made a name for himself through his unparalleled work ethic, passion, and persistence.
In 2007, Soroka teamed up with rising west coast booking agent Brad Wiseman to officially form The Soroka Agency. Having toured for countless years with his own band – This Time Next Year – alongside the likes of New Found Glory, Set Your Goals, The Wonder Years, and more, Wiseman brings to the agency his invaluable first-hand tour experience, road savvy, personal relationships with artists, promoters, and venues, and a clear understanding of the needs and goals of both solo independent artists and bands with label, management and marketing teams.
Together, the duo has built up an impressive roster and a reputation for being passionate, artist-friendly, and for developing bands from the earliest of stages of formation into highly-respected, internationally touring headline acts through smart, creative tour packaging and a relentless drive to build up musical communities from the ground up. In April of 2011, Soroka and Wiseman announced the agency’s strategic partnership with independent record label Equal Vision Records, along with an expansion of their staff, services and overall reach. The agency now has offices in Berkeley, CA and Brooklyn, NY and boasts a dynamic and constantly growing roster.
