Getting the artist/manager relationship right is crucial to building a successful, sustainable career. At its best, the relationship is a potent symbiotic mix of shared ambition, shared philosophy and shared passions.
When these stars align, the manager can advocate confidently for their artist, the artist can effectively execute their manager’s strategy, and they can build the brand together. But with so many variables, getting this relationship right is anything but straightforward.
In this intimate edition of Sound Advice, R&B powerhouse Becca Hatch and artist manager Ricky Simandjuntak will show you what it means to get it right. In conversation with FBi Radio’s Mia Hull (Host, Out Of The Box), Becca and Ricky will share their experiences as an artist-manager duo, how their relationship formed, how it’s grown, and how as a partnership they’ve been able to kick so many goals together over the years.
In Good Hands will be streamed live on Facebook and will be followed by a live Q&A session with Becca and Ricky. If you’re a budding manager, self-managed or unmanaged artist, or just love great stories, tune in from 6pm on Tuesday 23rd of November.
