APA Promotes Jules Urbanski to Music Agent
APA President and CEO Jim Gosnell on Tuesday (Oct. 16) announced the promotion of Jules Urbanski to agent in the concerts department.
“Jules is an exceptional young man with an entrepreneurial spirit, vision and passion for the music industry,” Gosnell said in a statement. “I’ve admired his talents since first joining our team and am pleased to award his hard work and diligence with this promotion.”
Urbanski first joined APA in 2015, working in the mailroom before joining the agency’s Agent Training Program prior to his promotion. The new agent is a University of Nevada, Las Vegas alumnus and the son of entertainment industry parents. His mother, Diane Wilk, was an executive producer of The Nanny, and his father, Doug Urbanski, is a Broadway producer, talent manager and Academy Award-nominated film producer.
Urbanski works closely with APA partner and co-head of talent, Jim Osborne, with whom he shares crossover clients, including T.I., Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and Tyrese Gibson. He also represents Blac Rabbit, the band and famous busking group who have accumulated over 27 million Facebook views for their Beatles covers and recently appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Urbanksi’s roster also includes newly signed Mateo Arias, otherwise known as ¿Téo?, and L.A. pop band Kid Bloom who recently supported the Neighbourhood at the Greek Theatre in their hometown.
