Pricing & Rights

Our management is tailored to each artist, and we have options for a range of budgets starting from £325 per month - so please make sure you speak with a member of our team to find out more.
Traditionally, a manager will take a commission on everything you earn both now and in the future - including stream revenue and performance fees. This commission is usually between 15% - 25%. They will also usually own a percentage of your rights.

Our model is different - our managers don’t take a commission or any rights and instead receive a fee for their consultancy. You’ll still get to benefit from your manager’s knowledge and expertise, without losing any rights or having the complexities of a management contract.
As an example, if you earn £20,000 in a year as an artist, on the traditional model you could owe up to £5,000 to your manager on those earnings - plus future earnings too. With Music Gateway - you get to keep it all!

Music Management

How much does it cost?

Pricing starts from £325 per month ($450/€375). We tailor each management package to your needs – so have a chat with a member of the team to find out more.

Do we take commission or any of your rights?

No, we don’t take any commission or any of your rights whatsoever! Our management is the same as a traditional artist manager but acting more like a consultancy – you keep 100% of your revenue, you just pay for your time with us.

How are we different from traditional music management?

Traditionally, a manager would look after the ins and outs of all your affairs, and take a commission on everything you earn. It is also common for a manager to own some of the rights to your music. 

With us you keep 100% of your rights and we take no commission. We’re here to help you navigate the industry and help you be the best artist you can be. We want to empower you to succeed, whilst remaining independent.

Who will be my manager?

We have got a great team of artist managers waiting to work with exciting new talent. We will always match you with the best manager for your genre, experience and skill set – however we also want you to feel comfortable with who you work with, as it’s a big step in your career development. 

Will I become famous?

No one can ever guarantee fame – and if fame is your motivation, you’re getting into the industry for the wrong reason!

Can you help me get a record deal, publisher, booking agent etc?

We will work with you to help you achieve your goals. We will work with you to set realistic targets so that you can monitor your progress towards your end ambition.

Do you listen to my music and give advice?

Of course! We want to help you get the best out of your music – so we will offer you tailored advice to help develop your career and your music. 

Can I leave if I don’t like it or change manager?

Yes, it’s important that you understand our entire focus is success and empowerment with each artist and working on your growth. So if there are any concerns, we would seek to address them immediately.

Can you help secure me gigs and a booking agent?

Yes that’s possible but will all depend on where you are in your career and the level of your performance. Agents want artists with unique talent, but most of all traction and a fanbase as they have to present you and reasons why you should be booked at venues and festivals, so we can work hard getting you to that position if that’s your goal.

Do you promote my songs?

Yes and no, there will be elements of promotion and advise on helping you with your releases and self promotion of course. We provide our roster with exclusive discounts on all our promotional services across digital marketing (direct to fan), radio plugging, spotify promotion and PR.

Will I get connected to other professionals in the industry to further my career in music?

Yes 100%, when you are ready we will help introduce you to Music Producers, Studios, Songwriters, Record Labels, Music Publishers and even traditional high level management if you want to go down that route.

Will my time with my manager be restricted?

This will depend on your tier with us and your needs, the more up the career ladder you are the less time you may need to manage. We set an allocation per month based on your needs and this is used in a flexible way, again around your needs, so the answer is yes but it’s not a hard lined process.

Will you do my social media management?

We can manage your socials, but it isn’t included with your manager, if this is a need we are happy to discuss and provide this support.
