About The Business
The central team consists of 12 people but the associate network now spans three continents and sits at 39 partners representing the interests of over 290 musicians and creatives from across the globe but mainly from the UK and USA.
AMS is a business that’s been built from scratch to accommodate the needs of the modern working musician in every way. Whether that’s a high-flying solo artist, an independently signed band or a world class cellist, modern musicians and creatives have very broad requirements from their management in order to maximise and realise their lifestyle enjoyment and long term career objectives.
Increasingly over the last decade, the traditional model of music management hasn’t met those needs and in order to realign, a completely fresh approach was needed.
Our team work with our clients on long term goals that covers the musical aspects of their career but also the less glamorous side like pension planning, creation of digital assets, royalty collection, legal agreements, investment, CPD and more.
The principle is that ‘Nothing is left to chance’. Every decision is made intentionally, in line with the agreed and defined strategy.
Our team help our clients focus not only on the destination but also on enjoying the journey and achieving the lifestyle that they want whilst in pursuit of their ultimate goal.
Early on in the relationship with our clients, we focus on their ‘Why?’. What makes them tick, what motivates them, what’s the ‘Difference’ that they want to make? Once we’ve got these key questions answered, it allows us to build a team around them that compliments them and speeds up their journey, not hinders it.
Having a clearly defined ‘Why?’ makes managing an artist 10x easier. Decisions are made not purely on practicality and financial principles but on the values and vision of an artist.
An artist’s manager’s ultimate job is to put everything previously discussed into practice and to create and manage a crack team to see each aspect of the artist’s development plan come to fruition. Such teams include producers, musicians, PR experts, videographers, even mortgage and financial advisers, all of who Artist Management Services Ltd have strong existing links with across the UK, Europe and North America.
