The Most Valuable Book on This Subject 11 Oct. 2014
By Jeff Green, partner, Stone Door Media Lab - Published on
Format: Paperback
Paul Allen's newest edition is the definitive book on artist management for several reasons. Far beyond a "how to" tutorial on the basics of the business, he illuminates the nuances of managing client personalities and sizing up an artist's motivations, ambitions and vision. His real-world perspectives, experiences and practical advice on career guidance are essential reading for both prospective managers and artists. This is especially true because of the high caliber of sources Professor Allen uses; they are among the top names in the business. Paul's insider knowledge and discussion on power players, getting calls returned and networking to build relationships are worth the price of admission alone.

Extremely well-written and easy to follow, this edition is updated with timely new information on the relevant aspects of social media, the increasing impact of streaming vs. downloads/physical sales and the increasingly common "360" deals. The contract samples and copies of related documents are important resources, as is Prof. Allen's extremely valuable website. if you are considering a role in artist management, as a professional musician, or, for that matter, any role in the music business, you will find this book to be a valuable investment of your time and resources. Highest recommendation.

Great book got even better 11 Sept. 2014
By Quality Hunter - Published on
Format: Paperback
This edition has a lot of new information and some helpful examples. If you enjoyed one of the earlier editions, I suggest that you get a copy of this new edition. I just recommended it to a young artist who is hunting for a manager. I'm sure that this will let him know what to look for in a manager. BE SURE TO CHECK OUT THE SITE THAT THE AUTHOR PROVIDES. There are some awesome links.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great book that explains what an artist manager is supposed to do and not required to do. It is a must read for any artist or manager that doesn't understand the vital and practical applications of artist management. It explains in detail why managers are integral to the artist's success no matter what their professional level may be.
Paul Allen gives a terrific overview of artist management 29 Sept. 2014

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Paul Allen gives a terrific overview of artist management. It's easy to read and understand, and is not specific to any genre of music. So, it will fit any student. My students are really getting a lot out of this book. I particularly like that he includes balancing working on behalf and for your artist while also developing yourself as an artist manager. A very delicate balance!
