Sam Kogon has been working in music since his college days. Although he studied environmental law at SUNY ESF, he sought refuge playing in bands and hosting a radio show on neighboring campus, Syracuse University. Soon into his college radio career, Kogon found himself conducting interviews with artists of the likes of Yoko Ono, Julian Lennon, Marky Ramone, Arlo Guthrie, Dave Davies of The Kinks, Andrew Loog Oldham (Rolling Stones Manager/Producer), Al Jardine of The Beach Boys, and Davy Jones of The Monkees. After an interview with The Zombies own Colin Blunstone, Sam was taken on by Talent Consultants International as their youngest agent. At the age of 22, Sam was representing industry legends such as The Zombies, Ronnie Spector, The Yardbirds, and Badfinger. As great as it was working with his idols, Sam made the decision to leave TCI and pursue working with newer groups in the earlier stages of their careers. He’s delighted to call Panache his new home!
