Our Story

In The Pocket Artists (ITPA) is a full-service national booking agency that was launched by Gabe Johnson in 2006 in Massachusetts and a year later, in 2007, Johnson relocated the already-thriving agency across the country to the friendly confines of Bend, Oregon, a gem of a global village nestled in the Cascades, where the agency has continued to thrive and grow significantly, both in staff and scope, since the move. With a focus on youth-driven original music that exhibits both artful writing and skillful musicianship, Gabe has helped develop the careers of notable artists such as Rubblebucket, Kung Fu, Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad, Head For The Hills, Juno What?!, Andy Frasco, The Bernie Worrell Orchestra and Roots of Creation, to name a few and currently represents some of the finest emerging acts in the nation.
