Nadia Prescher – SaveLive

Nadia Prescher brings over 30 years of industry experience to HeadCount and her newest venture as Head of Talent at SaveLive. Starting in Columbus, OH in 1994 as a promoter, Prescher moved to Georgia in 1996 to start Madison House with co-founder Mike Luba.  Madison House originated as an independent booking and management company, which further expanded into other artists’ services including merchandise, design, ticketing, publicity, travel and more - presenting "360" offerings before "360" was a concept in the industry.

In April 2020, Prescher saw the devastation that was befalling the live music industry and co-founded the National Independent Talent Organization (NITO) with 13 of her favorite independent music business owners, which grew to over 275 independent talent agencies and management. The hard work of NITO and many others contributed to the $16.2 billion-dollar Shuttered Venues Operators Grant (SVOG), which funds independent businesses during their economic recovery. 

In addition to HeadCount, Prescher gives back to the community by also serving on the Board of Directors of the Rex Foundation, a non-profit founded by members of the Grateful Dead.

Though Prescher is not a licensed counselor, she has been helping artists with their drug and alcohol issues since 1996. She is honored to be a trusted, private and reliable resource for entertainers and those in the industry wanting to get clean and sober since the mid-nineties.
