Business management, in my experience, can mean virtually anything: it’s the oil that keeps the engine running smoothly and the show on the road. My approach is the same to artist management. It’s important to be flexible, adaptable and willing to turn my hand to anything, including driving the bus! The following list details some things I can do to help:

  • Tour management
  • Negotiating fees and terms on artists’ behalf
  • Media planning and contact management
  • Liaison with external service providers, e.g. public relations, insurance brokers
  • Skills coaching, e.g. negotiation, presentation and meetings
  • Guidance on cash and cost management
  • Researching and advising on other potential income sources e.g. grants, including: coordination of applications, monitoring and reporting

Publishing, sync and release management
