Manager

By

Definition:

In a nutshell, managers are in charge of running the business side of an artist or band's career, so that the band is free to focus on creating the music. A manager for an unsigned band, or a band signed to a small label, may wear many different hats: promoter, agent, accountant, and any role that needs filling for the band. A manager for an artist signed to a larger label may act more as a supervisor of the other people working for the band. They will make sure the label is on their toes, that advertising and promotion is in place, that tours are being booked, and that the band is being paid.
