In my experience business management 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 remain flexible, adaptable and willing to turn my hand to anything. The following list provides a flavour of the things I can do to help:

Artist management and guidance

  • Tour and gig planning
  • Negotiating fees and terms on musicians’ behalf
  • Media planning and contact management
  • Song and album release strategy
  • Liaison with external service providers, e.g. public relations, insurance brokers
  • Skills coaching in, for example, negotiation, presentation and meetings
  • Guidance on cash and cost management
  • Publicity photography

Publishing, sync and release management

  • Negotiation and liaison with media production companies
  • Music release costing and revenue planning
  • Limited scope to secure finance to fund investment in releases
  • Distribution planning and support
  • Liaison with publishing companies to maximise royalty revenue
  • Researching and providing advice on other potential revenue streams
