Grant Norsworthy, Dove Award Winner, Grammy Nominee, bassist for Paul Colman Trio & Sonic Flood
Gary spent a good deal of our consultancy time together asking important questions and listening. I was so pleased to find that Gary genuinely wanted to ‘get’ me first and then customize his services to exactly my needs. He did not have a one-size-fits-all approach at all! He took the time and had the skills and insight to ‘understand me and what I believe I’m called to do before supplying excellent advise for the path ahead. Not only have I found solid professional insight in Gary, I have found a potential ministry partner.
Aligning yourself with the right management team can provide an artist with a partner who can help the artist achieve their goals. In the best of situations it can be one of the most important relationships of an artist's career.

Gary is an innovative and creative manager with progressive ideas. I recommend his forward thinking company for anyone looking for artist management.
TMA provides industry-standard artist development, production, marketing, and management. Our approach is a three-phase system that incorporates the most essential elements you need to become successful in the music industry and in ministry. Whether or not you need an actual "manager" is not the question.
I have worked closely with some of the leading figures in the music industry including Ron Kenoly, Paul Wilbur, Alvin Slaughter, Carl & Leann Albrecht and many others. I have served as personal manager for Paul Wilbur (Integrity Music), Lynn DeShazo (Integrity Music), Bob Fitts (Maranatha & Integrity Music), Michael Gungor (co-wrote Dove nominated & ASCAP Song of the Year "Friend of God"), Meredith Andrews (now with Word Music), and many other independent artists world-wide.
Our clients do not have to hire publicists, art directors, marketing firms, promotions or image consultants, and career counselors - The Management Agency provides all of this and more for our clients. We are a "full-service" management and development agency dedicated to providing quality, affordable management and administrative support for both established artists seeking to take their careers to new levels and those just getting started in the music industry.
We do this by being a resource provider, ministry facilitator, guidance counselor, and manager. Regardless of whether you are just getting started and need our artist development services, or are already established and in need of standard artist management we want to customize a plan specifically for you.
The branding of your vision is the first step in designing your marketing plan. That includes everything from your photo shoot to your digital and printed materials.
Record labels don't develop artists. TMA does. The development process is where we address all of the most important foundation elements of your career to make sure they are in line with your vision and mission.
Marketing includes CD promotions, launch, radio promotions, distribution, and touring. This is where the heavy lifting really starts!
Gary has worked with and served churches, ministries, and artists for over 30 years. His calling is to "facilitate ministry" first and foremost.
Laura is responsible for radio promotions and our Global Outreach Initiatives. She interfaces with radio stations and artists when new singles are released by TMA clients.
