FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT

When you let someone else manage your finances, you are exercising a huge act of faith and trust. Who can you really trust to do the right thing?

We have heard horror stories of mismanagement, abuse, neglect and even theft. You need to find a business manager you like, someone you trust, someone who really understands the business you're in and has a vast amount of knowledge in your field. You need someone who can dig in and help you maximize your earnings.

With over 12 years of prior business management experience from top firms in the entertainment industry dealing with superstar artists, producers and songwriters, and with a boutique approach built on alliances and day-to-day involvement, we are confident we can free you up to focus on your creative endeavors knowing your finances are in good hands.

A manager guides you with decision-making on a daily basis. Passion for and belief in you and your music matters. Industry experience and connections also matter.
