Music Leadership Group, Paradigm Talent Agency

Last Year's Rank: 32

On Jan. 11, Paradigm announced that Morris' AM Only and The Windish Agency, which it had partnered with in 2012 and 2015, respectively, would be integrated under the Paradigm banner. It was a bittersweet milestone given that the architect of the merger, Paradigm veteran Donald "Chip" Hooper, had died on March 5. "Chip," says Diamond, "still serves as a spiritual leader for me and many others here." Paradigm's roster includes four of the top 25 touring acts of 2016 -- Coldplay, Dead & Company, Dave Matthews Band and Phish -- as well as hot tickets Sia, Maxwell and The 1975. With Diamond, Morris, Weiner and Windish opting to pull together as equals, the agency begins 2017 poised for growth.

Prized Music Memorabilia: Weiner: "A test pressing of The Band's Music From Big Pink that bears the group's original name, The Crackers."
