We get asked quite often from artists that come to us, wondering perhaps because it’s time for them to move to the next level in their careers: What does a music management company and/or manager do?
The music manager’s job may include: Negotiating contracts and fees, finding a booking agent for tours, festivals and special events, working with venues that match the artist’s career strategy, advising on career paths, publicity and promotion, helping them on career decisions such as which record producer to work with, or which songs to perform for a better demographic to fans. Also consulting and tracking on radio, music industry record sales, as well as managing media relations through publicists, film, TV, gaming and movie soundtracks, being the liaison to record companies, publishing companies, merchandising companies, lawyers and MANY other industry contacts.
Also we match artists with music products and endorsements to help, enhance and meet better sound requirements, such endorsers as Ibanez, ESP, Shure, Zildjian, Promark, Tama, Pearl, Yamaha, Schecter, Gibson, Remo, Fender, Aquarian, PRS, Paiste, And MANY others.
Yes, as you can imagine, the list of what a music management company does continues on from there and develops to meet the needs of the individual artist as their career develops.
So hopefully this will give you a basic idea of what a band/artist management company and manager does. To help us develop and deliver your desired music career path to your ultimate goals contact us for more information.
