16 May 2024

The manager spotlight offers a small insight into the heads of incredible managers.⁠ This week in the spotlight is Sandy Dworniak!

How long have you worked in Management?

25 years.

Who do you manage now?

Two rosters of clients – This Much Talent / Twisted Talent.

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

I was made redundant from a management company and took Nellee Hooper / Craig Armstrong / Jim Abbiss with me.

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

Every day is a good day meets a bad day.

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

Managing Jim Abbiss from the very start of his career to now, with highlights such as albums with Arctic Monkeys, Kasabian, Tom Walker etc.. Music supervising the soundtrack and score for Romeo and Juliet, developing successful producers and artists from the start of their careers.

What do you think are the big challenges for a manager in 2024?

Severe lack of funding for developing artists.

Why would you recommend the MMF?

The MMF is an active community of like minded individuals who nurture, support and educate each other and work towards improving the rights of artists, producers and their managers. This is much needed in a business that cares very little about that support. There is also a lot of strength in numbers so important that managers stick together.

What music are you currently listening to?

Gia Ford.
