Artist Management for the Music Business by Paul Allen is designed to be used as a definitive guide to the students of artist management in the music business, as well as those seeking to become professional managers. The book also prepares the reader for a successful career, looking at the application of classic management theory to artist management, featuring profiles of artist managers, an exclusive and detailed template for an artist career plan, and samples of major contract sections for artist management, and record deals. Updated information, including a directory of artist management companies, is available on the companion website.
