BEYOND THE TRADITIONAL ARTIST DEVELOPMENT
One of the most crucial and consistent tasks in the music industry is organizing chaos. With development and management services we truly exercise our beyond the traditional motto ensuring the chaos stays as contained as possible. With development packages to provide long term and fruitful guidance while setting you up for something to manage regularly we additionally offer month to month management to streamline repetitive processes and keep the nitty gritty organized so the artist can solely focus on what they love most: writing and playing music.
If you want to be a full time musician it is important to develop properly into a manageable business. Setting goals, prioritizing properly, and getting in healthy routines to boost your artistry is key. This is exactly what our development packages set you up for. These development tiers are designed to keep the key priorities in your direct eyesight to keep realistic goals and growth in place. I focus on the bare essentials that each artist needs to maintain looking professional and impressive for the future gatekeepers you want to impress. Aligning your storefronts (music and social platforms) to be cohesive and undeniably you is key and something you can carry on with you throughout your career.
The ideal life for a musician is to eat, sleep and breathe writing and playing music. It’s hard enough to be a content creator for social media on top of that, so when you have developed enough as an artist to begin juggling too many hats; it’s nice to have a manager step in. Brain Candy lives life beyond the traditional to specialize in juggling the backend nitty gritty details so that you have more time to play. We exercise detail oriented brains to keep our eyes on all aspects of your artistry to avoid things slipping through the cracks. Your ideal month to month manager awaits. These packages are 100% customized to fit your goals and what primarily goes on in your day to day. General goal setting and task management is a must and having someone to hold you accountable and resurface your memory so you can focus more on your music is a game changer. Packages include but are not limited to: assisting with song release processes, live show assistance (advancing shows, sending cold emails, venue suggestions, being presentable on your platforms to be most impressive), maintaining cohesive storefronts, advice and input, formatting emails for pitching purposes, stepping in as representation and always looking out for your best interest. Once you have developed as an artist to the point where more humans have eyes on you it is more important than ever to maintain your online presence and streamline as many processes as you can. This is where the real work begins.
