Keith Merrill

Manager and Founder

"Artists empowering Artists. I strive to inspire this ideology by building a roster - almost a company - of great artists who are simply

stronger together. My love of connecting the right creatives, watching their relationships bloom and evolve into great Art - this is why

I do what I do. My professional work has been an international mix of producing, directing, performing, and writing. These practical

skills, fortified with an extensive knowledge and experience in almost every aspect of our industry, means Merrill Creative can offer a

highly personalised, impassioned and rare representation, affording clients a ‘one stop shop’ for advocacy, support & guidance."
