Manager Spotlight offers a small insight into the heads of incredible managers. This week in the spotlight is MMF Accelerator manager, Feedy Frizzi.

How long have you worked in management?

About 10 years

Who do you manage now?

Max Pope and Michael Lovett aka NZCA Lines.

Where did you find your first client and what inspired you to take them on?

I was DJing at the Old Blue Last in 2011 and there was a band called Crushed Beaks playing a club night there. It was love at first sound.

What’s a good/bad day at work look like for you?

A good day is when I’m doing anything creative and/or around people. A bad day is when I’m doing accounting, reading contracts or dealing with unreasonable people. You often get a bit of everything every day.

What has been the highlight of your management career to date?

I don’t have one. It’s a mix of everything that makes the whole. I’ve enjoyed the ride so far!

What do you think are the big challenges for a manager in 2021?

Breaking new artists (it’s like playing the lottery).
Making a living as an independent manager (i.e. without being paid a wage).
Keeping body and mind healthy and support others around you to do the same.
Keeping your head above water when things get busy.. you are expected to do/know everything and there is a lot going on!

What music are you currently listening to?

Max Pope’s new album which we finished a couple of weeks ago. It’s a gem and I hope it’ll do well when it comes out next summer.
