The Toronto Music Industry Association (TMIA) & Music Managers Forum Canada (MMFC) are presenting “Artist Management: Finding Your Partner in Success,” a free workshop designed to offer insight into the artists manager’s role. How do you know how or when to find such a team member? What exactly DOES a manager do? And can they really make miracles happen?
Presented in partnership with MMFC, this workshop will explore the who, what, when, and why about this pivotal role in any artists’ team. Attendees will gain insights on what to expect from a potential manager, what they can (and can’t) do for your career, and more.
Interested in becoming an artist manager? This workshop is for you, too, as you’ll learn what it takes to help bands reach their goals.
Panellists will include:
Nathan Stein – Artist Manager/A&R, Bedlam Music Management (The Sheepdogs, The Coppertone, Monster Truck)
Rob Lanni – Artist Manager and Co-founder, Coalition Music (Our Lady Peace, Simple Plan, Justin Nozuka)
Aaron Miller – Artist Manager, Arts & Crafts (The Darcys)
