Former Buddy Lee Attractions leaders Mike Meade and Amy Aylward have partnered to form Acceleration Music Group. Meade was previously Vice President at BLA, while Aylward was an agent.

Acceleration Music Group’s flagship artists include Suzanne Alexander, Bone Feather, Ty Herndon, Brody Ray, Darryl Worley and Michelle Wright.

“I’ve been working as an agent in this industry for more than two decades and I’ve maneuvered through some vast changes in the entertainment arena during that time,” recalls Meade. “Two things have always remained constant: a great booking agency can truly accelerate an artist to the next level working in tandem with the artist’s team and a hard-working agency that moves forward as a unit to pursue both our clients’ and our staff’s goals will succeed. I’m excited for the opportunities that can be achieved with this new company and I’m proud to partner with Amy for AMG.”

“Acceleration Music Group is all about moving careers forward,” says Aylward. “Working with established artists as well as new comers gives us the perfect opportunity to expand fan bases and bookings worldwide. The caliber of artist we represent is second to none and I am so excited to be starting this journey with my long-time friend and co-worker, Mike Meade.”
