Chandler Music Works
Chandler Music Works provides artists with a level of expert career advice that would usually only be gained by engaging an experienced and successful full-time manager. However as any artist who has attempted to secure the right manager (or in fact, any manager) will know, there are not too many that fit the bill.
And while numerous new tools, including social media, are available to everyone, including a start-up artist, there is no replacing the solid advice, guidance and counsel that a highly skilled and qualified manager can bring to an emerging career.
It is often said that careers can turn on a moment and likewise a single piece of inspired advice from someone with vision and experience can make the world of difference when it comes to an artist’s career.
