The Greatest Trip

Posted May 2, 2011 by in Management

I am one of the people who have been caught up in the Royal Wedding.     I realize that there are so many more important things to be consumed by; however,  because I had lived at Westminster School (adjacent to Westminster Abbey)  and because of my love for all things England – I admit to savoring [...]

Earlier this month, I attended the South By Southwest (SXSW) Music and Media Conference in Austin, TX. This event is a conference by day and festival showcase by night, the biggest music industry event of the year. This was my second time attending the event, my first being in 2008. I thought that I would [...]

The Fruit of the Agony

Posted February 28, 2011 by in Management, Songwriting

Over the last several months I’ve been lucky to be a fly on the wall  watching Jason Gray, an artist on Centricity, and managed by our team at Eaglemont,  write for a new record.     With probably over 20 songs on the table,  we had the final meeting last week to select the 12 songs that [...]

Getting a Gig

Posted September 9, 2010 by in Management, Touring

Over the past years it’s been said that music companies don’t develop artists anymore. That record labels don’t have the time, energy or money to invest into something that one day could be great. Some would argue that with the state of our industry still in flux, somehow the art of ‘development’ has been lost, [...]

It happened….again! In the middle of a week of meetings and falling behind on everything on my ‘to-do’ list, the question seemed to slap me in the face for the hundreth time….”why am I doing all of this”.      Perhaps you’ve never been at that place, but I’d like to think all of us have hit [...]

Hello! Angilee here! The newest addition to the Centricity Music and Eaglemont Entertainment team! I’m working with the artists Eaglemont (by the way, have you checked us out on Facebook) manages in the booking realm. You can stop groaning now, I promise, booking isn’t as bad as you think. Ok, maybe it has its not [...]

Finally! finishing the third bit on this little series. So, it’s simple, just get some sleep on the road…right? I would beg to disagree. It is MUCH harder than that and usually requires some serious commitment and persistence. You have to build a schedule, a plan, and then stick to it as much as you [...]
