Creatively driven A&R Scout, Artist Manager and professional musician with expertise in artist development and music production. Ruthlessly dedicated to finding innovative methods of enhancing the music experience for fans and artists. Academically astute, self-motivated, results-driven and entrepreneurial go-getter. Hungry to learn new skills, ready for anything.
I devised campaign emails for PR to connect fans to artist tours, merchandise and info; recruit new artists online via social media (YouTube, Soundcloud) and attending live gigs; correspond with songwriters or producers for key collaborations and artist development. I discovered artist Emily Krueger, built a professional relationship, formalised her signing to the company and assisted with artist management which directly led to the record deal with ‘Majestic Records’ for her band, Zoology.
I assisted Grammy-nominated producer and engineer Sacha Skarbek and clients with song ideas and top lines; advise production on tracks to add flair; communicate with clients to arrange meetings and payments. I co-produced on a song for Kylie Minogue and for un-launched artist Sophia Alexa.
I was a music talent scout for East West Records, finding artists online and via the A&R software 'Sodatone'. I derived statistics on streaming and social media to evaluate the success and conjecture of a given artist. At Parlophone Records, I created and led a marketing campaign to rebrand R&B artist Shakka to increase his fan communication and streams.
