Abstract

This article explores the problems that Australasian artist managers face when attempting to build global careers for their clients in a world in which international record labels no longer play the key role that they did in the past. The research data generated to date suggest that artist managers' workloads have vastly increased, necessitating much more overseas travel to deal with all of the participants in their client's career instead of being able to go through an international record label's head office. While the artist managers' role is increasingly central, their attempts to work globally are hampered by a lack of consistency in relation to best practice and conduct across different territories.
