How can I get an artist manager to help with my career?             

I can appreciate the frustration of trying to get the attention of someone to listen to your music and to manage your career. I authored this book and teach artist management at universities and I’m often asked the same question you pose.

Briefly, understand that a manager is primarily interested in the commercial viability of your creative work. There are a lot of truly creative people who write, sing and perform very well and they must understand that their creative work must demonstrate that it has the commercial potential to make it worth the time of an artist manager to try to develop.  Professor Paul Allen
