TMA provides industry-standard artist development, production, marketing, and management. Our approach is a customized experience that incorporates the most essential elements you need to become successful in the music industry. Whether or not you need an actual “manager” is not the question.
You need to ask yourself if what you’ve been doing until now is not working, why not? Perhaps you need someone to take an objective look at your career/music/organization and give you a plan of action to take you from where you are to where you want to be. In essence, you either need development or a plan. TMA can give you both!
With over 30 years’ experience in the music industry, I can help you develop a more mature understanding of your career path and how to successfully integrate a successful business with your music. We consult with and manage artists worldwide and our international clientele includes artist or band in India, Uganda, Ireland, Switzerland, Sweden, Italy, Trinidad & Tobago, The Netherlands, United Kingdom, and Grand Bahamas, as well as artists and bands all across the USA.
“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.” — Jeri Goldstein
“Gary is an innovative and creative manager with progressive ideas. I recommend his forward thinking company for anyone looking for artist management.” — Kathy Douglas, CEO, Indie Extreme
We are not simply an agency who manages. Rather, we provide advice, guidance, counsel, and other services an artist may reasonably require to further his or her career as a musician, composer, actor, recording, and performing artist; we help develop new and different areas within which his or her artistic talents can be developed, and we work with other firms or persons who may be retained for the purpose of securing contacts, engagements or employment for our clients.
I have worked closely with some of the leading figures in the music industry including Ron Kenoly, Paul Wilbur, Alvin Slaughter, Steve Fry, 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. Because of our deep commitment to Christian principles, we are very selective of the clients we represent. Therefore we reserve the right not to represent an artist or group whose principles might conflict with ours.
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.
