We’re offering accessible, affordable and flexible management services so that we can give smaller, independent artists and bands the guidance they need to create a strong brand, get noticed by labels and publishers and build a loyal fanbase!
We want you to know that your music is in safe hands with our Music Managers, so see for yourself! We’re going to introduce you to them over the next few weeks, kicking off with Kym Musgrove!
From managing a local cover/original band in her hometown of The Gold Coast, Australia, to working with an internationally renowned solo artist, Kym Musgrove has experience across many facets of the music industry. From generating successful Kickstarter fundraising campaigns to negotiating, coordinating and collaborating with record labels, agents, promoters and publicists world-wide.
With a passion for artist development, Kym loves to help creators build their business and is experienced in artist promotion. This includes the design and implementation of marketing material for new releases, website design, digital advertising, styling, photography, video, social media advertising and content. Additionally, she has assisted artists with managing budgets and revenue streams, touring schedules, and the manufacturing and distribution of merchandise.
Having worked with artists at different stages of their careers, Kym understands the differing needs and requirements of newly formed vs established artists. In 2006, she managed a start-up band (Pure Mystery), guiding them through the process of developing their image/brand, creating an online presence, and securing income opportunities. In 2015, Kym began managing acclaimed Los Angeles-based musician/producer/composer/arranger Jherek Bischoff, whose numerous collaborations have included the likes of David Byrne (Talking Heads), Amanda Palmer, Anna Calvi, Missy Higgins, Ben Folds (Ben Folds Five), Vance Joy, Ariel Pink, Sarah Silverman (Comedian), Neil Gaiman (Author) and many more. Jherek has performed at notable venues and festivals around the globe including Carnegie Hall, Radio City Music Hall, and The Royal Albert Hall. Plus performances on live television, such as The Late Show with Jimmy Fallon, TED Talks and the BBC Prom’s. Along with critically acclaimed albums, Jherek has also toured worldwide, and written and produced music for TV, film and theatre.
With a background in marketing, Kym started her first marketing business in Australia at the age of 22. She grew this to 50+ staff, selling it nine years later. As a certified yoga and meditation teacher, Kym combines a wealth of business skills along with a sense of balance to support her artists develop their music careers.
“Knowledge is power- and Music Gateway is an empowering platform that helps artists gain the knowledge they need to build long term, sustainable careers. I love seeing the transformation that takes place when an artist feels empowered enough to take control of their branding, image and income and turn their music careers into a thriving business.”
