Welcome to TMA

Providing development & management for faith-based performing artists worldwide.

Since 2005 The Management Agency (TMA) has been providing the very best in artist management & development support, production and marketing for artists (both labeled and indie alike), ministries, and other faith-based businesses needing professional services so they can focus on what they do best. Our services include:

  • Artist Management
  • Crowd-Funding
  • Capital Fund-Raising
  • Non-Profit Consulting
  • Artist Development (all aspects)
  • Tour Management
  • Promotions & Marketing
  • Concert & Event Promotions
  • Website Design
  • World-Class Production Services (audio & video)
  • Branding & Logo Development
  • Social Media & Fan Development
  • Industry-Standard Radio Promotions to all genres

We have over 30 years’ experience in church and ministry business administration, Christian education, worship team training & development, and in the management and administration of tours (domestic & international), events of all kinds, non-profit consultation services, and artist development, administration and management.

We are now scheduling late Spring/Summer Music Management, Development & Ministry Consultations. The consultation is the first step in establishing a management relationship with our clients and is especially designed for ministries and faith-based performing artists: singers, bands, musicians, dancers, authors, speakers, and actors – anyone in faith-based performing arts and ministry.

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

Stay Home ... But Let's Meet!

Don’t let the Covid-19 Virus deter you from making important plans this year. Since it’s not advisable to travel – and TMA is postponing all consultations for a few months – why not schedule an online Music Management Teleconference via WhatsApp so you can stay home and make big plans once this health crisis passes?

Gather the band, producers, musicians, etc. together and let’s meet! Click here for details.

Remember, record labels don’t develop artists. TMA does.

TMA Artists are already planning their 2020 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.

What We Offer

Artist & Ministry Development, Management, Promotions & Marketing - We Do It All!

TMA customizes its work with artists, bands, and other faith-based performing artists based on their individual needs. That can include:

  • Development Only – comprehensive development “from zero to hero” following the recommendations of the Client Evaluation Report from the Music or Ministry Development/Management Consultation;
  • Development & Management – complete development and management following the recommendations of the Client Evaluation Report from the Music or Ministry Development/Management  Consultation.
  • Management Only – you have everything developed but you need professional representation to the industry.
  • Business Plan Development – most artists, bands and small ministries do not treat their careers like the business that it is. We help you develop a professional business plan you can take to the bank!
  • Music Management Consultation Only – you need an industry-standard assessment of your career and a game-plan going forward
  • Production Only – world-class production utilizing A-Level session-players in Nashville.
  • Crowd-Funding – TMA’s Crowd Funding program creates a simple fund-raising campaign so your supporters can partner with you.
  • Marketing & Promotions – Promotions and marketing tools to help you present a great first – and lasting – impression.
  • Music Publishing – TMA Media Group returns back to the writer/artist/client a larger portion of shares of their music, while providing a high-level of publishing administration.
