Summer Sale 2019!

Our Summer Sale is in full swing. Savings abound on a la carte services and consultations.

We have limited consultation date availability in July and August, with the sale ending on August 31. Don’t delay if you want to make the latter part of 2019 better than the former – and prepare for 2020!

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

TMA Artists are excited about their 2019 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!

How Can We Help You?

Whether you are just getting started or have been touring for years, TMA can provide you with the world-class development, management & support you need to get to the next level. Are you a ministry in need of professional development? Do you have a solid mission and vision statement?

Record labels don't develop artists. TMA does.
