Finding a Artist Manager or Artist Consultant Who Works for “YOU” as an Artist
It’s your music. You know what you want it to sound like, where you want to go as an artist. And while you’re open to creative suggestions (or at least should be if you want to get anywhere in today’s music business), you still want the finished product to represent who you are as an artist.
Most artists realize that they need some help with the business end of the music industry. After all, things work best when your hands are free to do what you do best—-make great music. The right music management company can make all the difference in the world when it comes to making sure that music is heard.
You need an artist manager who will work his tail off to make sure that you get your shot, that your project ends up in the right hands, and that you and your music are promoted in ways that will result in exposure for you and your music. What you don’t need is a music management company that wants so much control of your creative process that the end product doesn’t truly represent who you are as an artist.
Before you sign your name on the dotted line and invite an artist management company to represent you, make sure that they plan on representing YOU. Make sure they have the experience to represent you effectively, the contacts to give you a legitimate shot at success in the business, and the drive to put as much effort into promoting your project as you put into recording it.
