In today’s age of getting discovered on YouTube and other social media platforms, you may think it is unnecessary to have a professional manager for your career. However, when people start to take notice of your craft and talent, you will need to know how to navigate your next career moves.
A seasoned artist manager and/or artist management team knows what it takes to get the right performances at the right venues, as well as making sure you aren’t getting taken advantage of by people in the industry that think you are naive and inexperienced.
Perhaps you’ve had your high school buddy try to act as a working manager for you, but it hasn’t gotten you anywhere?
Hiring a professional is a completely different experience altogether. Musicians in Miami, FL and throughout the world know that Frangioni Media is second to none when it comes to providing consultation services for artist management choices.
Musicians and bands exist in an interesting time—new genres and multi-genre artists have become the norm. Perhaps you are a cutting edge musician or band that is breaking new ground in modern music. When thinking about hiring a manager, you need to know that they are listening to or are familiar with music that is similar to yours. Ask them if they have experience managing someone that fits into your genre or genres of music.
Even though it is great that a manager is familiar with older music, you want to make sure that they aren’t stuck in the 60s or some other decade where they experienced music within a small box and expect you to fit into that box as well. You need to find someone or a team that has their finger on the pulse of today’s music and is guided by what is currently going on in the industry.
There is nothing worse than a know-it-all manager. Time and time again, talented musicians and bands link up with somebody who is just trying to act like a big shot. These people are usually just in it for themselves and don’t really care about you as an artist.
A great manager actually cares about your opinions and listens to you because they genuinely get excited when they hear your music. They want to build a successful team with you and around you.
Although a great manager may often have different opinions than you about how to proceed with your career, you can trust that they do acknowledge your feelings and wants while always considering them, all the while using their experience to make informed decisions about what is best for your career moves.
