WHAT IS A TALENT MANAGER

A talent manager (also known as an artist manager, band manager or music manager) is an individual or company who guides the professional career of artists in the entertainment industry. The responsibility of the talent manager is to oversee the day-to-day business affairs and aquire opportunities for an artist; advise and counsel talent concerning professional matters, long-term plans and personal decisions which may affect their career.

 

WHAT IS A TALENT BROKER

A broker is an industry professional, a selected individual person or company who arranges transactions between a buyer and a seller for a commission when the deal is executed. A broker who also acts as a seller or as a buyer becomes a principal party to the deal. Unlike a Manager or Agent, a broker works on specific projects, or a group of projects for an individual artist, band or business group.   Music brokers do not legally cross any legal boundaries of a  management or booking/talent agent representation contract.
