Record labels don’t develop artists. TMA does. How can we help you?

Now that the world is opening back up it’s time to get back to business! We are now scheduling fall 2020 Music Management Consultations worldwide. There’s plenty of time to redeem these past few months’ of inactivity and plan for a dynamically exciting 2nd half of 2020 and begin preparing for 2021.

Limited in-person consultation dates for September & October. How can we help you?

TMA Artists are already planning their 2021 releases and tours. Are you?

For the solo artist or band, record labels aren’t developing artists anymore. Most 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. And it all starts with the consultation.

For more information about our Artist and Ministry Management services, please complete the no-obligation Contact Form so we can send you the information you need to make a quality decision about your next steps. We look forward to hearing from you!

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.
