Yellow Couch Management:
As relationships go in this business, few are tighter or more important than that of artist and management. I believe in my clients wholeheartedly and work with passion and conviction to help them reach their goals. As an artist, it's fair to expect that from your manager and you should settle for no less.
I have tremendous respect for anyone with the courage to make a run at having a career in this business. To have an honest shot, an artist must have an enormous amount of time, talent, flexibility and resources. Moving an artist from where they are to where they want to be requires the same from me. Because of this, I'm not necessarily looking to take on new clients at this point, but if you believe that you honestly have what it takes and that we would be a good fit, I'm open to a conversation. 412.728.2916 or email@example.com.
Thanks for reading and good luck!
Yellow Couch Management Consulting Services:
Not every band or artist requires a full-time manager, but you may have a specific task with which you could use some assistance. Sometimes you just need help sorting priorities, making difficult decisions or fundraising for albums or promotion. I have expertise in all of these areas and would be happy to discuss your needs.
Yellow Couch Artists:
Sean Rowe: Out of the blue, I wrote to the very cool label ANTI- Records in summer of 2014 to see if we could feature one of their artists that was coming to town on our video series. They politely declined, but sent me a link to Sean's album Madman, which was scheduled to come out that fall, and asked if we'd be interested in having him perform. Madman quickly became my favorite release of that year and by the time he showed up that September, I was pretty geeked out. We recorded the session and he went on his merry way, so I figured that was that, but that was not that! Thanks to a number of insane coincidences, Sean ended up inviting Matthew Fowler (see below) out on tour for a couple weeks. I tagged along and we all hit it off. Since then, we've just been sailing along on the S.S. Friendship and now we're working together. I couldn't be happier about all of this if I had two hearts.
Matthew Fowler: Matthew and I began working together in late summer 2013. To be honest, I wasn't really interested in artist management before a family member passed along his CD to me. From the opening notes, I was hooked and felt that at the very least, I could knock off a couple years of him spinning his wheels as I had done.
We work because I believe in Matthew's music and because he and I share a vision for his future. In our time working together, Matthew has gone from an almost totally unknown artist to one that's received national acclaim in publications that include American Songwriter, Acoustic Guitar Magazine and CMT Edge. We're developing high-level relationships throughout the industry, including legal, label, touring, publishing and publicity. Matthew has toured with Sean Rowe and shared the stage with Angel Olsen, Sea Wolf, and Damien Jurardo, among many others.
Terri Binion: What can I say about Terri? I've been lucky enough to call her a friend for many years now and am thrilled to be able to help people learn about her incredible music. Hell, Jimmy Webb called her one of the most promising songwriters working today. Lucinda Williams sang on her last record and Jim White wrote the bio on her webpage. Many could argue that Terri has already made good on the promise that Mr. Webb was talking about with her first two records, Leavin' This Town and Fool, but if any doubt still remains, it should be put to rest with the record that Terri is releasing this summer. This album and our mutual belief that working together is just the right thing to do brings us to this point. I'm incredibly excited to see what we're able to pull off!
