How long have you worked in Management?
Not too long, this will be my fifth year of management, but this is something I always wanted to do so wanted to make sure it was the right time
Who do you manage now?
Now I manage Kapsa. Iora and Ruby Tingle all incredible artists and all so different I think that’s why I can give them all my best
Where did you find your first client and what inspired you to take them on?
My first client Ruby Tingle we meet through an open mic I was running in Manchester and instantly connected through our love for everything dubby and loved how she fuses all aspects of art into her music, it was something i’d not seen before and made me instantly want to work with her and be her friend.
What’s a good/bad day at work look like for you?
Good day at the office is everyone happy, releases on time, replies from people who we are working with. Bad day at the office is emails and phones not being answered and artists not being respected. That kind of thing ha.
What has been the highlight of your management career to date?
There have been some really great highlights firstly Kaspa. Getting over 1 million monthly listeners and streams in Spotify that was massive for us. Iora being awarded the Open Fund by PRS this year. Another huge highlight is that Ruby Tingle has a solo show exhibiting her visual art and music at Warrington Museum and Art Gallery. Along with Thing having their music available on British Airways for people to listen too is massive
What do you think are the big challenges for a manager in 2022?
Well from my point of view one of the big things due to the state of the world at the moment is managing people’s mental health and realising the we all get affected by things differently and we have to treat everyone as an individual. And I guess leading on from this is keeping everyone motivated not during the good times, but when things are feeling a bit stale. Got to be the biggest cheerleader from your artists
What music are you currently listening to?
At the moment i’m listening to Lara Jones, Overcoats, Kouba as well as Iora, Kaspa and Ruby Tingle as although I manage them i’m a huge fan of their music.
