    Music Manager



    The music manager must be able to create a strong and clear direction for the sound his artist takes on. He must hire songwriters that can help accomplish that goal. The content is everything and putting the effort to get the right content out there is the first step. He must also continually be in touch with different producers and look for beats/instruments that align with artist brand/style. Buy/negotiate on how to get those beats and get them fully recorded mixed and mastered.


    The music manager in this new age must be internet savvy because a lot of the buzz that he would create for his artist would be online. Having a big social media presence and having connections with other people that have a massive following is also good.


    Now that you are working on content and you have something to show, a music manager should also source for investors or brands that can support their efforts. These events range from listening parties to PR parties, videos and music production. A music manager should be resourceful in that he can create proposals that he/she can take to banks or high net worth individuals that may be interested in investing in an artist.

    Social media branding

    There is a lot of administrative work involved in managing an artist. From making proposals to managing dancers, stylists, hair and make-up crew, this are but a few of the things that a music manager should be able to handle. A music manager has to multitask well and be diplomatic. He has to manage all the different personalities involved and plan out the logistics. Logistics can involve getting to radio/TV interviews on time. Video shoots, photo-shoots.
