MEET THE TEAM
Cheyanne Powell launched her pathway in the music industry after graduating from Michigan State University with a degree in interior design. She worked artist relations + design for large scale events such as Tortuga Music Festival, Okeechobee Music Festival, Electric Forest, Kaboo Del Mar, and many more while touring the states.
She then decided that Los Angeles was where she needed to be in order to take the next step toward her goals of artist and event management. Powell landed an internship at Prodigy Artists while also working for an experiential marketing and branding company within the festival space. Over the years she expanded her work ethic while working for an online music publication, managing her own artists, and assisting the Detroit Live Nation production team to understand how a club operates.
She was able to take all of these experiences & parlay them into a booking assistant position at Madison House, which represents acts such as Bassnectar, CloZee, CharlesTheFirst, Mersiv, and SmashMouth.
