I offer one-on-one consultation and administrative services for record labels and artists, with a focus on music publishing and a little bit of creativity coaching thrown in.
I brainstorm with my clients to create ideas for breaking through and expanding awareness without compromising artistic output. I can audit the label or artist’s present landscape and deliver suggestions, such as social media and website optimization, determining strengths in the current catalog, and potential plans moving forward. Though I provide some tactics, my emphasis is on long-term strategy — so if your primary goal is quickly increasing Facebook followers, then I might not be the best fit.
I’m also lucky to share my passion for music publishing by helping others secure their catalogs. My clients are songwriters, label managers, band members, and musicians who are building a repertoire of songs with tangible value. They know that enforceable ownership of their music is the only way to engage this value fully and that this control of rights is a cornerstone of the modern music business.
A wise man once said, “Luck is when preparation meets opportunity.” This nugget is never truer than in our industry. Together we’ll come up with surprising ideas, outside-of-the-box solutions, and creative strategies to raise attention for your label or recording project so you’ll be ready when opportunity strikes.
