How do I do it all?
If that's what you're asking yourself then you're probably looking for an artist manager, booking agent or at least a project manager to add to your team. You have a vision of where you want to go and you need someone who understands that and is prepared to be dedicated to the vision. I could tell you all about what I do, but really, it's not about me. It's about you. You and your art.
We all know that the music business has changed so much that everything is now in your hands. It is incredibly difficult to take on all the support roles you need in order to be successful. On one side, you're trying to be creative and write more material, attend rehearsals, showcases and travel. You're trying to design your next album cover and thinking about the video you want to shoot. You've got sound checks and gear maintenance. On the other hand, you need to build your new website, develop a social media strategy, manage merchandising and inventory, maintain your vehicle, plan and track expenses, and so much more. The next thing you know it's soundcheck time for today's gig and you're wiped out. You get back to the hotel after the gig and think you'll catch up on some booking emails only to learn that the hotel's high-speed wi-fi is a relative term. Many find the whole thing too daunting and simply give up or worse, keep struggling to do it all themselves. The reality is that there is more opportunity now than ever. . .IF you have the right team working with you. That's where I can help.
With over 30 years in the advertising business that stemmed from an early career as a talent booking agent, I have the skills, understanding and knowledge to help you thrive. As a musician (not pro but I play regularly because I love music) I not only understand, I appreciate your scenario. I have nurtured my people skills and networking ability and I have a strong business acumen. I offer creative problem solving and fast decision making. And I am organized, very organized.
If you'd like to partner with someone who can manage the business side of your art - create a profitable business plan, apply for relevant grants, help shape your identity, understand your audience and even handle bookings - maybe I can help. Let's talk about it. Please start by emailing me to tell me more about your band. Or you can use the form below to make sure I know enough about you to see if we're a good fit.
