Nick Middleton

Co-Founder | CEO

Both a celebrated artist and entrepreneur, Nick's career path is guided by the enduring principal that business can be pleasure. He's performed on iconic stages such as Coachella & Life Is Beautiful, produced and engineered remixes for world-class talent like U2 & Imagine Dragons, and built a legacy of independent music, art, and events under his acclaimed imprint and music company, Westwood Recordings. His resume reads as an ultimate melding of both the creative and business sides of the music industry - collaborating, mentoring, and managing talent along the way. Today he's focused on building forward-thinking companies and digital platforms tasked with empowering the next generation of Canadian artists.

Grant Paley

Co-Founder | President

A veteran of the Canadian music industry with 22+ years of experience, Grant has experienced the love of music as both an award-winning artist and agent. His journey into a life of music began on stage as the frontman & DJ of the electrifying Moses Mayes. After a decade of touring, he transitioned behind the scenes as a music agent and he's never looked back. Following 12 years at the esteemed Paquin Artists Agency where he developed his own unique roster of live and electronic acts, he left in 2020 to co-found Midnight Agency. Today under the Midnight banner he represents an award-winning roster of clients in Canada, the USA, Australia, and New Zealand.
