What We Do
Welcome to Brand New Artist Solutions! BNAS have collectively been in the music industry for close on 50 years now. There are very few artists worth their salt that BNAS have not booked or worked with in one way or another in this country.
Brand New Artist Solutions founders Misha Loots & Gareth Wilson has extensive knowledge about the music industry’s top acts and artist managers/agents in SA and around the world and played critical roles in booking and touring acts such as Mumford & Sons, Deftones, Angelique Kidjo, Violent Femmes, Anderson Paak, Suzanne Vega, Flume, Diplo, Chevelle, Kris Kristofferson to only name a few.
BNAS will save you money, give expert advise and book the perfect artist for your next big event.
I worked with Misha on a show with a tough set of circumstances. He worked tirelessly to ensure a smooth and well produced show. My artist was really happy with both everything on the ground and the show itself. A professional operation and I am looking forward to working with him again on many more shows in the future.
Yuss, but these okes know their shit! professional without the wankery and handsome to boot. i've never had a bad experience with bnas.
be nice and work with BNAS.
It’s always a pleasure to deal with Gareth and Misha. When they are involved we know everything would be well arranged.
The Brand New Artist Solutions team of event programmers and talent buyers has been responsible for some of the most diverse and relevant event line-ups in the history of South African live music productions to date. With their ears to the ground and their fingers on the pulse this dynamic duo consistently secures the most pertinent acts for any given production.
We at The Black Cat Bones have only ever had positive experiences dealing with them on a regular basis over the past 10 years and can recommend them to any and all potential business partners.
Thanks Misha , It was a pleasure dealing with you and the deftones loved the trip. No faults at all in our dealings and I would welcome the opportunity to work with you again.
It’s always comforting to embark on projects with BNAS as they are professional and at ease in both the corporate and live music environment. For a big brand that activates predominantly in the experiential music and events field we consider BNAS a major value add offering creative and exciting ventures through live music. Their great brand entertainment solutions can still easily be executed within the corporate structure.
Amazing service amazing people, great at what they do.
Gareth is the Man I can trust with my talents…
How time flies. I have known Misha a long time and while we have not done as much work together as I would have liked (I blame the exchange rate of usd to the Rand!) what we have done has been very successful and he did a great job.
We've worked with many agents over the years, but we've never clicked with anyone like we have with Gareth. There's no one more connected in the scene, and his passion and enthusiasm for Shadowclub's career is huge. He's pretty much the fourth member of the band.

I have worked with Misha on a number of projects over the last couple of years and I can honestly say that I have not met a team more professional, more honest and more committed than them.
What I like most is their willingness and attitude. They make things happen and they make sure that what you want you get. Best in the business.
I have known Misha for many years and have worked with him on several acts over this time, such as Eagles of Death Metal, Jimmy Eat World at Oppikoppi festival and always find him to be straight forward, reliable and professional on all occasions.
These guys don’t have their fingers on the pulse of the music industry. They are the pulse. They’ve been my go-to music advisors and conspirators since my SAfm days nearly 20 years ago….and have pulled off many miracles, averted a couple of disasters and saved a few kilos of my bacon on the way. Use them.
