One of the most legendary behind-the-scenes figures in rock ‘n’ roll history, Jonny Podell forever transformed the concert business. In a career spanning more than four decades, he has built a string of successful companies, including the most recent, Podell Talent Agency.  As creator of the first “boutique agency,” BMF Enterprises, in 1974, he is credited for single-handedly changing the way rock shows were booked.  Among the numerous Hall of Fame artists Podell has represented are the Allman Brothers Band, Alice Cooper, George Harrison, John Lennon, Blondie, Lou Reed, Rod Stewart, Jimmy Page, and Robert Plant. Podell collaborated with his long-time friend Bill Graham to put together the historic 1974 trek by Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young—the first stadium tour ever, selling out 50,000 seats in every city and establishing a new way to present rock ‘n’ roll. By connecting to existing spiritual practices from Kabbalah and Transcendental Meditation to the teachings of The Guides as channeled by Paul Selig, Podell Agency is helping to raise their collective visibility and impact, furthering the planet’s already existing movement towards spiritual evolution and growth.
