Recently, two of our clients have been signed exclusively to record labels. We could not have been more excited, especially because so many of our clients have true vocal abilities. Although we are not a music talent agency, we have received requests by top industry professionals to audition some of our clients. InterFACE’s locations continue to grow, but many still consider New York City to be a mecca for the entertainment industry. As we continue to provide our clients with connections to the industry, we have researched some of the top talent agencies in New York.
