L’Agence was born from the encounter of Clément Ledoux & Clémentine Richard with artists dedicated to music and the theatre. Their generosity, lucidity and joy in the service of art have inspired L’Agence with a vision of the management of artists which is at once enthusiastic, daring, combative and without compromise. With talent and confidence, as well as attentiveness to establishing privileged relations with all the actors in the world of music, L’Agence accompanies each of them along their particular pathways, assisting, initiating or administrating projects in France, Europe and worldwide. As the vibrant soul of L’Agence, artists form an unexpected community, united by the sole ambition of sharing music.
