TALENT AMERICA's STORY

 

47 years ago, Jane Eastwood had a vision to help talent be discovered, and Talent America was born.  She truly was the pioneer of talent discovery in the entertainment industry. We thank you Jane for all you have done for every performer who graced your stages. After 40 years, she sold the company to TinaMarie Holland & Garrett Steele. Both continue to offer incredible opportunities to performers of all ages.
