Kim Wagenaar

Kim Wagenaar graduated in Arts & Economics in 2013 from the University of the Arts in Utrecht. She has gained experience in multiple corners of the industry at a young age, including working in the Product & Promotion department at Holland’s oldest label to co-founding a music management agency.

Born in the Netherlands but having grown tired of feeling like a small cog in a huge machine, she relocated to Reykjavík, Iceland, in 2017, where she felt the cultural side of life was held in higher regard. Since then she’s held multiple management roles, working with artists like Damien Rice, Svavar Knútur and GusGus, rediscovered her love for production and took over Peer Agency in 2020 from a dear friend and fellow music manager Melina Rathjen.

Peer Agency focuses on creating sustainable careers for their roster, beyond borders. The agency hopes to build musical bridges between Iceland and the rest of the world. Kim is currently working on expanding Peer Agency by adding a production and local PR department, as well as strengthening the bond with her homeland, the Netherlands.
