Highly successful artists cannot go without having hardworking managers behind them.
The job of artiste managers includes negotiating contracts and fees, finding and booking events and venues that match the artiste’s career strategy, advising on career decisions, publicity and promotion, helping them on career decisions such as which record producer to work with, or which songs to perform, and managing media relations on behalf of them.
