Our roots & vision
Our founder, Kim Thé, is often described as a dynamo! She brings unbridled passion, energy and more than a decade of artist management and booking experience through her work with her husband and business partner Will Stroet of Will’s Jams as seen on CBC Kids, Universal Kids and Kidoodle.TV.
Over the past 15 years, while managing Will’s career as an artist, Kim has worked in various senior roles in marketing, communications and PR in the non-profit, government and corporate sectors.
In 2012, Kim and Will formed their company, Pebble Star Productions Inc., specializing in bilingual children's entertainment encompassing live performances and international touring, event production, music publishing and television production. After having success booking Will for more than 1,500 shows in Canada, and branding him as the original “Pebble Star” (a “rock star” for kids), Kim knew the next logical step would be to start her own booking agency. On International Women’s Day on March 8, 2017, Kim incorporated Pebble Star Artists.
