About Us

"21st century's international classical artist management agency for the ones possessing the freedom of being creative"

As a cultural startup that sets itself apart from its competitors, LocksBridge Artist Management became a full member of the International Artist Managers Association in London in its first year, becoming the association's youngest team. In 2022, the addition of France Director Zekeriya Turkmen to the team boosted LocksBridge's recognition as a top startup, as it was selected as one of the top 5 in the prestigious D-Start program at Paris Dauphine University Incubation Center, where it was chosen from a pool of over 100 applicants leading to the opening of the LocksBridge Paris office.

LocksBridge Artist Management is a trailblazer in the field of cultural entrepreneurship, challenging the misconception that only tech startups can succeed. The company's core team are pushing boundaries in the classical music industry and proving that creativity and innovation can thrive in even the most traditional of fields. LocksBridge Artist Management is on a path to become a model for success in the world of classical music and arts.

With its offices in Istanbul and Paris, LocksBridge Artist Management is currently expanding its presence into the Northeast Europe, Balkans, Gulf countries, and Far East markets. In the latter part of 2023, the company will establish its presence in Boston, and in 2024 it will begin serving the US and Canadian markets.
