Left Bank is the management home to Abigail Washburn (Grammy award-winning songwriter, clawhammer banjo player, TED Fellow and US-China cultural ambassador), guzheng virtuoso Wu Fei, internationally renown pianist and composer, Rachel Grimes, guitar/drum duo Ahleuchatistas, powerhouse stringband, Uncle Earl, and The Wu-Force (a trio feat. Washburn, Wu Fei, and multi-instrumentalist, Kai Welch). 

Carissa Stolting began her career in music as Executive Assistant to Ashley Capps, CEO and Founder of AC Entertainment (Bonnaroo, Big Ears, Moogfest/Mountain Oasis, Forecastle).  Carissa was formerly head of the Artist Management department at AC working with inventive artists such as Trixie Whitley, Clare & the Reasons and Julia Nunes among others.   A Francophile, Carissa has a Master's degree in French & Linguistics and was a French Lecturer at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, before she began working in the music industry. 

Left Bank is named in homage to the brilliant arts community that thrived on the Rîve Gauche, southern bank of the Seine, Paris.
