After a few months away we are back with another meet-up, talk and open mic combo. This was very successful last time and as part of the Leytonstone Festival we have secured a venue for this meet-up at the Luna Lounge on 18 July 2013.
We are delighted to present Mark Muggeridge as our guest speaker this time.
Mark has worked in the entertainment business throughout his career. He got hooked on working in the music business whilst working with touring bands in Australia. He soon graduated to tour managing working with many Australian and International artists and then artist managing working with major name club DJ’s in Australia. He currently runs music marketing and campaign management company Evil Genius Media. He also manages UK and internationally based artists via his own roster under the EGM banner.
The Presentation: Artist Management & Label Interest
How to get their attention and what to expect when you do.
In this concise presentation Mark Muggeridge will talk about what artists need to do to attract the attention of professional artist managers and labels.
He will cover points including: When is the right time to seek professional artist management, What should you expect from a manager when you do and what will they expect from you in return. What an artist management deal looks like from a contract perspective. He will also talk about working with a label. What they bring to the table and what they will expect of you in the deal. And finally why self-releasing music is vitally important for new artists.
