ARTIST DEVELOPMENT

Are you an independent artist looking for advice? Although I am not currently looking to take on any new artists in a management capacity, I can give you a consultation on the following:

  • Getting Started

  • Finding and Booking Shows

  • Social Media

  • Branding

  • Promo and Press

  • Duplication and Online Distribution of Release

  • Royalties: PRS, MCPS and PPL

  • Copywriting - Press Releases and Musician Bio

I can help you put a release plan together, structure your branding and social media presence (or do it for you), and help you create an electronic press kit (EPK).

Services will be priced on an individual basis. I understand that everyone has different requirements and budget, and I’m happy to have a provisional chat with you to impart some advice and discuss what you need.

Please get in touch for more information, or just to introduce yourself!


EXPERIENCE

ARTIST DEVELOPMENT COURSE - Access Creative College

I achieved 100% grades for this course, which involved the critical deconstruction and reconstruction of an artist in early career. I studied here 2013-2014.

BRIDGET

I have very recently taken on my first artist: 20 year old singer/songwriter Bridget, with a unique sadcore/dreampop style and alluring voice. We’re in very early stages, and I’m sure more details will come soon.

HYDRA LERNA

Hydra Lerna is my performing moniker. I have self-managed myself as a fully independent artist for the last few years, gaining a certain degree of success including single and EP releases, multiple support slots, blog coverage, frequent radio play and many shows including a successful EP launch.
