Artist Management

 


I am focused on managing, educating, and cultivating each client into achieving their maximum potential by working together extensively. We will formulate a plan of attack, as well as an execution strategy that yields measurable, positive, and hopefully desired results! I can’t make guarantees, but with that being said, it is NOT my job to take more of an interest in your career than you. YOU have to want this more than ANYONE! I’ll support you 110% and give you my all if you demonstrate through ACTION that this is what you truly want. To help yourself, make sure you have utilized as many platforms as you can and demonstrate thoughtfulness in your efforts to achieve results on your own thus far. I look for indicators such as work ethic, in addition to talent, creativity, and personality, and experience. It helps to be easy to work with by keeping an open mind and a willingness to persist through disappointments, which can make music feel like a pointless endeavor. It’s all part of the building process so prepare yourself to push on through the lows and maintain a cool head when the highs come. Check your ego at the door because this process can be quite humbling.

“Most management agreements lead off with the section entitled Manager Obligations, Manager Services or something similar that describes the task the manager will perform for the artist. Typical manager tasks include advising the artist on the various ways to exploit the music or musical performances, hiring people to do things for the artist, for example, hiring an accountant, roadie or sound person and soliciting, negotiating and closing business deals, for example, with record companies or sponsors.

If there are additional services that the manager will perform, those should be listed too, for example, managing the artist’s social media, handling non-music entertainment services, maintaining the artist’s website or administering music publishing. It is not uncommon in the early stages of an artist’s career for the manager to take on the role of business manager, handling accounting and finances, or road manager, supervising touring. If that’s the case, these duties should also be included in the agreement.

In order for the manager to perform these services, particularly to make deals for the artist, the manager usually wants a power of attorney. That is the legal authority to act on the artist’s behalf. There are two types of power of attorney. One is the special or limited power of attorney for specific purposes, such as, endorsing checks or booking gigs. The other is a general, very broad power of attorney. A manager may want a general power of attorney but it’s usually in an artist’s best interest to grant them a limited power of attorney and to list the specific signing rights.

The manager and the artist can also negotiate which, if any, contracts need approval by the artist.”
