The Reality of Artist Development

I came across a video I want to share with you that I believe underscores the importance of artist creative development. The speaker is Owen Husney, a musician, artist manager, and concert promoter based in Minneapolis. He was Prince’s first manager and the person who arranged the famous contract with Warner Brothers which allowed Prince nearly unprecedented creative control over his music.

This video clearly communicates what TMA has been saying for the past 9 years: DEVELOPMENT IS KEY if you want to be successful in the music industry!

I HIGHLY encourage you to watch it several times. Click here to visit the page.

Our Music Industry Consultation is the first step in the creative development process for all of our artists and bands. You won’t find similar services anywhere else in the world for faith-based performing artists and bands where the agency travels to YOU for this service!

If you are serious about your craft and want to make this year more profitable and successful, you must invest in yourself, starting with a professional consultation. If you won’t invest in yourself – and I’m not talking about your music, your band, your gear, your studio time, etc. – I’m taking about you! – then why should anybody else?

    I’m 56 years old. I believe I can still sing. Am I too old to get serious about being a serious artist

      You are not too old! We need “fathers of the faith” to provide balance and stability in the Christian music industry. I’m 55 and planning to record my 2nd CD later this year!

    What follows a consultation in terms of exposure? What are my chances of getting a recording contract?

      Record labels aren’t developing artists anymore. They will only consider picking up an artist who is already fully-developed. So, somewhere along the line the artist must invest in his/her development if they want to take their music to a national level. TMA provides that development service as well as ongoing management. In today’s business climate in the music industry, there are no guarantees of exposure or getting picked up by a record label. But your chances are much higher if you are fully-developed to industry standards and have professional representation. That’s what TMA does – our goal is to level the playing field for unsigned, indie artists so they have as much opportunity as do the labeled artists.
