Here are the top 5 things to consider when hiring an artist manager.
Management agreements are an important aspect of developing a healthy and long-term business relationship between a band/artist and manager. I have negotiated management deals at the beginning of the relationship, and looked for ways to terminate deals where the relationship has broken down.
But no matter whether you identify as either “aspiring” or “established”, there are a few key clauses that you need to pay attention to in any management deal.
The bottom line: this is an important and intimate relationship with potentially vast financial and career consequences. Start on the right foot.
