LEVY BENJAMIN

Paris-based producer, booker and manager Benjamin Levy founded the agency BL MUSIC PRODUCTIONS in 2007 and works mainly with international artists.

Passionate about jazz and funk, he has worked with globally renowned artists as James Brown, Earth Wind and Fire, Kool and the Gang, Magma, Archie Shepp, Roy Ayers, Billy Cobham, Azymuth and Fred Wesley. A keen musician himself, Benjamin was first seduced by the music industry as a career when he was still a student, attending gigs and making music documentaries about some of his heroes.

He went on to work for Sony and various agencies before deciding to carve out his own niche in the industry. He has since built up an impressive contacts base and reputation as one of France’s leading independent agencies. BL Music specialises in organizing, promoting and managing concerts, tours and music festivals both at home and abroad for jazz, hip hop and funk artists.

As well as a flair for promoting great music by great artists, Benjamin has also managed several groups, the first of which was Lyon-based jazz funk band Dialect Music, producing their album « Parlez-vous dialect » (Discograph – Hip Hop Jazz Style). Benjamin’s extensive experience has given him an in-depth understanding of all aspects of the music industry, and established BL Music as a discerning agency showcasing some of the best acts in the genre. Since 2011, he’s also been involved in some of the French capital’s most prestigious cultural training programmes, like ATLA & l’ISCPA, sharing his experiences with students and teaching them how to be a good booker, technician and manager. He founded in 2014 the first french booking course in ATLA school. He’s also a member of the management board (board of directors) of MAP.
