LiveNation's Tom Loudermilk pinpoints why: "Scoremore have done a nice job of establishing themselves as tastemakers. Their fans and followers trust their opinion on artists and are loyal to the brand."
Zach Quillen from The Agency Group books Big K.R.I.T. and Wiz Khalifa, two acts Scoremore brought to town in the last year. "I think the main thing that struck me initially about Sascha was his passion for the music," he says. "His openness to learning new things stood out to me and he is a student of his work. That takes a certain humility that can be rare in our industry, and I respect that about him."
Tastemakers with ambition, it turns out, can run the show. Timing has allowed them to grow simultaneously with the artists they book, their parallel careers ascending together. Thompson recounts Guttfreund's observation that "Mac Miller is one of the artists I've been able to sell without ever even printing a flier." Mic in one hand, ticket in the other, they're hoping the timing will work.
