We take established and developing major label or independent artists guiding their careers with a long-term approach in mind. Our reputation as a management company is impeccable with years of experience in dealing with the contemporary music business. It doesn’t matter if it is booking a local club, servicing a national tour, or a global music festival; we cover it all with expertise. We coordinate all efforts on behalf of our artists working with record labels, presenters, booking agents, press, radio, tour advancing, and overall logistics.

We are equally at home working with Grammy winning artists, indie rockers, or your talented offspring who are looking to shoot for the stars.

RECORDING AND MUSIC PUBLISHING CONTRACT SOLICITATION
If your needs include shopping your project to a major or indie label we are connected to the right decision making executives giving your music a fair shake with the powers that be. Whether we manage your career or not, Iconique Music Group offers solicitation services for a commissioned fee, and we have been very successful in this difficult climate successfully soliciting artists to recording contracts globally.
NEW MEDIA & MUSIC 2.0 SOLUTIONS
In the digital music era it has become incumbent upon artists to really take hold of their career in a d.i.y. manner. This often leaves the artist wearing many hats and as a result they don’t have as much focus on their prime concern—music. At Iconique Music Group we are acknowledged pioneers in ‘Music 2.0’ working as senior executives at the groundbreaking original web-based music service provider, MP3.com. We can effectively guide the artist through the vast morass of cyberspace together with our strategic partners on the cutting edge of the digital music revolution.
INDEPENDENT TOUR LOGISTICS, SERVICING AND ADVANCING
Many independent and established artists who handle touring affairs on their own can benefit from the assistance of a well coordinated team to advance their performances. We pay strict adherence to artist technical riders and travel logistics to ensure the artist is relaxed and ready to shine. This ‘ala carte’ service really comes in handy when your team does not have the infrastructure to handle getting you from point A to point B with assuredness.
