Having spent ten years session drumming for The XX, M.I.A, Real Lies, Jamie T and Glasvegas. I have gained a vast number of contacts in the media, fashion and music industry. Assisting write-ups on records sold at Rough Trade West gave me my critical ear. Two years experience in Music PR and Music Management positions taught me how important artist representation is. Day to day office duties and assisting with marketing strategies, tour organisation and communicating with media were just some of the duties involved. I also hold a BA Hons in Music Management with Events Management.
Playing for bands all around the world and performing on their albums has given me experience with the every day to day process at all levels of an artist. Making me an ideal candidate to understand varied live gig setups, organise after parties and keep track of ticket sales.
Writing record reviews, opening and closing the store, customer service and cashing up at the day’s end.
Assisting in creating marketing strategies, coordinating record releases, marketing schedules and arranging meetings with clients. Organising and overseeing press conferences, magazine shoots, promotional music events. Calculating costs, working to a budget, handling invoices and client payment.
Negotiating marketing strategies with record labels and managing execution of marketing, promotion, live tour and recording schedules. Arranging meetings with clients, magazines, journalists and music promoters. Overseeing the planning of concerts. General database, diary and office management and general administration.
