TMA launched our very first podcast on Friday, April 1. “The Music Creators” will have weekly episodes every Friday. “The Music Creators” is a podcast brought to you by The Management Agency, Inc. better known as TMA.

It’s a podcast for faith-based indie artists who want to excel and become successful in the music business as a touring artist or band. But it’s also a podcast for worship leaders and their team members who’d like a better understanding of the biblical basis for worship. You can’t be successful in leading if you don’t know how it all began – and how the Bible provides a roadmap for great worship in today’s church. And we’ll see how these two courses intercept along the way.

Join us as we discuss new topics of relevance to both touring artists & bands as well as worship leaders and their teams. New podcasts will be announced prior to release, so check back often for updates.

  • Gary spent a good deal of our consultancy time together asking important questions and listening.

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.
