03 - The Management Episode - Part One
IT’S DIFFICULT TO MANAGE AN ARTIST WHO DOESN’T KNOW WHO THEY ARE.
Music management is something we get asked a lot about. When do I need a manager? What do I look for in a manager? How do I approach management fees? etc
So many questions for a partnership that is as unique and complex as the two individuals involved in it. We very much enjoyed chopping it all up in this episode. And as one of our co-founders, Loretta Andrews is a music manager of four artists, it seemed logical to interview her about her experiences, and ask her some of the popular questions around this topic.
Working with a manager can be extremely helpful, and a propelling next step in your career. Ideally the addition of a manager to your team will take you further than you could have ever gone alone.
However a couple of things that having management is not. It's not a badge of honour, the validation that comes with it is pretty fleeting. Also having a manager or management team is not an excuse to take your foot off the gas. The grind continues.
This was a pretty in depth chat, which is why part two will follow next week.
