The Team

"Teamwork makes the dream work."

Manager


 

 

The manager is your "go to" person. He will help you build the rest of your team, form your career plan based on your goals, and get you to that next level.

As all good managers, he has music industry connections in your area, and a good reputation. He has managed and currently managing other talent and therefore, has proof of work. 

Many independent artists may start with dedicated friends or family. Just ensure they are organized, keep you on track, and that they understand what it’ll take for your success.

Our manager gets paid based on total profits they help you generate. This is common and keeps the manager working to get you paid, so that they can get paid.

As the talent you also has a duty to the manager, being professional, showing up to sessions and interviews on time, keeping content flowing for the manager to be able to work with are just some of the duties.

 

Like the manager the booking agent is compensated based on the revenue they generate for you by booking you for live shows, tours & festivals.

Our booking agent is familiar with relevant live events for you to perform at and handle negotiations with the venues.

Keeping your schedule booked and getting out to meet other artists and fans at shows is a fast way to network and share your music.

Photographer
 

Having quality photography of the artists, studio or behind the scenes, gives your fans a great way to connect with you and see what you’re all about.

Having a photographer on your team ensures you’ll be captured well in your sessions, important shows as well as keeping you loaded with fresh content to work with.

 

Our videographer knows how to shoot your music videos, promotional ads, or any video cuts you need. Our photographer can shoot film as well which is a bonus.

Our artists can benefit most from having a videographer for music videos and live performances.

Accountant
 

Think of your music career as the business that it is. 

There will be a point when you’re making a livable earning and will be set up professionally as a small business owner.

Our accountant can help you with allocating your budget, completing taxes on your behalf, and overall business management.

 

With so much collaboration in the music industry and intellectual property or, the music, being the focal point, you can understand why having contract agreements are important.

When we get into royalty splits for producers, artist and songwriters on a song,

Or talk about who owns the master and publishing,

Things can get complicated fast. Having an entertainment lawyer familiar with the music industry on stand-by will give you extra confidence when a contract comes your way, or when crafting your own.

Have things reviewed to make sure you’re not getting screwed over, or if a contract is missing any necessary components.

Publicist
 

The publicist will identify your core audience and pitch your brand and product to all relevant media such as – blogs, radio, magazines, interviews, podcasts and playlists in the music industry.

Their job is to professionally promote your music to the media to get more coverage and build a buzz for you.

 

The music distributor is the one who will get our music into all relevant stores & streaming platforms for our fans to listen and buy.

Traditionally, music distributors would work with labels to get their artists music into retail music stores.

Today, distributors work the same way, but most stores are now streaming platforms like Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora, etc.

It’s also not as necessary for an artist to be part of a label to have their music distributed, though a label can be beneficial in many ways.

Some examples of music distributors are – DistroKid, TuneCore, Landr, CD Baby

Distributor
Social Media all-star
 

If you’re not a big fan of being active of social media all day engaging with fans, promoting, and posting about your music, 

Hiring an assistant to keep your social accounts active might be a good move, especially if social media is where most of your audience hangs out.

We have social media assistants or ‘gurus’ that can help create the best content suited for each social platform and create a custom plan to grow your following and brand your music. 

We can also suggest certain apps for you to download to help keep you consistent and organized if you don’t need a dedicated person for your social media plan.

 

Having these players on your side will save you time and make the journey to a fruitful career in the music industry that much easier.

Even if you don’t work with everyone on a daily basis, building relationships with these industry professionals, and knowing who you can call up when you do need that extra support, is worth gold.
