We understand things don't always work out as planned.
Rather than withholding information and exploding in a fit of emotional angst, we prefer to transparently dismantle, communicate and account for the what, why, how, when and where in an open, honest, neutral and unbiased way, so we may learn from experience and grow, develop and strengthen ourselves and others as individuals.
Red & Black Music was set up in 2012 to stop musicians cancelling. Conforming to our striving for information transparency, Read & Blog is an open source of KLU (Knowledge, Learning and Understanding). It reports breaches of agreements and unscrupulous traders, communicates problems to be aware of, documents incidents, resolutions and future implications and explores and analyses ongoing issues/topics in music management and production. Full names, addresses and contact details of private individuals are omitted for the purposes of GDPR.
My role in Red & Black Music will be to represent client interests, facilitating day-to-day operations and communications, supporting Rory from the perspective of maintaining our brands and reputation and managing all internal agreements to ensure that they are met. I have strong experience in conversing with clients and business intermediaries through my role as a digital editor, where I was in charge of handling the iBooks' sales relationships with Apple. Although I’m new to the performing arts; I believe my skills and qualities will be most relevant in this new role.
Jo’s done a great job so far, so I won’t be modifying much at all to what she’s put in place.
Thank you for your patience as I get up to speed on the processes and systems.
I look forward to meeting you soon.
