Consulting

The most critical aspect to any successful career or business startup is outlining the first steps and focusing on the necessities. So, why would you think that just because you enjoy making music that it means you will be able to make a career out of it? These days, it seems like everyone is trying to become a star. There are more choices than ever for music listeners and concert goers to choose from. This also means that the ability to generate and capitalize on the right opportunities is more important than ever if you’re truly committed to performing for a living. That can be a daunting task for anyone trying to build from the ground up. It’s a thin line between up & coming and down & out, and it takes alot of work on your part to be taken seriously and get noticed. If your idea of a music career is fancy dinners and endless drinks with your entourage, there’s not much that anyone can do to help you. If you aren’t afraid of putting in work and earning every opportunity one connection at a time, then this could be the right time for you to consider surrounding yourself with a strong support team.

This is not artist management. We are not into babysitting and/or crisis prevention. What we can offer you is the highest level of career consultation and a wealth of professional advice. We will leverage our relationships to create and close opportunities on your behalf. You must be prepared to Build Your Own Buzz, we will not do the required work for you! We will do our part to set you on the right path, and all we ask from you is the same professionalism in return.
These programs are designed for those in the early stages of development and with limited budgets. It is for the independent artist who has determination and is wise enough to know they need help. Whether you are preparing to release your first studio quality project or need to get a handle on some booking opportunities, we are proud to offer our proven solutions at an affordable rate.

We are very selective about who we work with. We are only interested in working with artists that are truly dedicated and committed to the business of being an independent musician, and can afford to spend some of their money on educating themselves through our consultations.
