"Janet 1967" original sketch
by David Hockney
Janet Williamson graduated from
UCLA majoring in painting in the heady late 1960s,
studying under master artists David Hockney and Richard
Diebenkorn. From 1969 to 1974, she managed tours and
created LP covers for the seminal '60s British group The
Incredible String Band.
Following the ISB, she
managed and booked ISB co-founder Robin Williamson;
produced concerts in London, Edinburgh and Los Angeles;
briefly managed Ravi Shankar's non-profit Music Circle;
and was an agent with The Moss Agency for a few years,
booking (among others) Chick Corea and Charlie Haden
before starting her own agency.
In 2001, Los Angeles, she founded the Janet
Williamson Music Agency. Her roster reflects her
eclectic musical, cultural and art background and
interest in fusion of many kinds.
It is well known that
art — and in particular music — can create changes for
the better. It is her great pleasure to book artists who
join many others around the world in doing just that.
