-- LOS ANGELES (August 1, 2012) - Artist management company Persistent Management announces the appointment of manager Keith Chagnon to the organization. Chagnon, an industry veteran with more than twenty years experience working with companies such as Cinder Block Merchandise, BandMerch and the Virgin Entertainment Group brings a well rounded skill set and background to Persistent. With the addition of Keith to the management team he brings along artist Jonny Kaplan.
Jonny Kaplan, equal parts shaman and renegade. Born in Philadelphia now based in Los Angeles. Jonny and his stellar band The Lazy Stars cite influences such as Bob Dylan, Neil Young And Crazy Horse, The Band and Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers.
Kaplan has been performing his whole life and he’s had the opportunity to work with a lot of artists he dearly loves and respects. Keith Richards, Nora Jones, Dee Dee Ramone, Dwight Yoakum, Kings Of Leon, Wilco & Ben Harper just to name a few. He feels blessed.
He’s been all over the world the past few years supporting his first three records: “California Heart”, “Ride Free” and “Seasons”.
He’s just finished recording his newest rockin’ affair “Sparkle & Shine” at Johnny Depp’s studio. It’s coming out in the next few months. Summer 2012 finds him on the road opening for his amigos, The Wallflowers. To hear more check out Jonny’s prior releases available online at iTunes and Amazon.
