WHO IS BAND MANAGER / ARTIST MANAGER?

An "artist manager" or "band manager", is in charge of the business side of being in a band. Very often band members are great at the creative side of things, but aren't so great at promoting themselves, or negotiating deals. In a very general sense, the task of a manager is taking care of the day to day running of band's career, so the band can focus on the creative side of things.

 


WHAT IS "PRE-PRODUCTION" ALL ABOUT?

In the music industry, pre-production is a process during which recording artists spend time creating and refining their musical ideas. The artist thus produces a song's demo recording, or rough draft, in order to preestablish the song's creative promise. This reduces the time and money spent in a recording studio. The goal is to enter into the major recording phase of production with the basic and most promising ideas having been already established.

 


WHO IS A RECORD PRODUCER / EXECUTIVE PRODUCER?

Today, the recording industry has two kinds of producers: executive producers and record producers. They have different roles. While an executive producer oversees and manage project's finances and schedule (and sometimes additional aspects such as publishing, marketing and promotion), record producer oversees the creation ("production") of the music. Record producer has many roles that may include, but are not limited to: gathering ideas for the project, selecting songs and/or musicians, coaching the artists and musicians in the studio or during the pre-production process, controlling the recording session, and supervising the entire process.

 


DO YOU OFFER BOOKING SERVICES?

GM is not a booking agency, but we often coordinate booking of artists that we manage or co-manage.
