Who is Top Talent?

In 2014, Teri founded our company as a booking agency with the dream of helping musicians find and secure gigs. Derek joined in late 2017 as an agent with a passion for live music. Josh signed on in 2018 to continue his goals of helping artists grow their businesses. Teri invested in opening our brick-and-mortar offices and studio in downtown Cape Girardeau in 2019. Since then, we've been working with an ever-growing network of artists, businesses owners, and non-profits in the Midwest United States.

Whether you're an independent artist or small business, we are eager and equipped to help you accomplish your goals!
