One of the questions I am most often asked has to do with managers. What do they do? Do I need one? How do I get one?
In this chapter I look back at my own history with those who have overseen and shaped my career. This is a part of musical life that has changed dramatically over the years. Understanding the difference between the agent and the manager is crucial in building a career. One’s relationship with that individual can make or break even an established artist. Finding the right fit can be difficult, and I offer a few suggestions in terms of what to look for in the person who will take care of your business life.
Please ask questions relevant to the role of music agents in today’s world.
