CORINNE BAILEY RAE
'There were so many magical moments during the 12 years I managed Corinne, but outside of the commercial success, public and industry accolades, and meeting so many fabulous people, one moment still stands out for me -- when I first heard her demo of LIKE A STAR. I smile even today, 20 years later, just thinking about it. Such a beautiful, transcendent song, just acoustic guitars and Corinne's voice -- it was so honest and beautiful. No song opened more doors for us, or connected more strongly in the public ear. Like a Star was a career defining song for both of us, for which I will always be grateful' BM
'One of the biggest thrills was taking Davy and his band Back Door Slam out to the USA in 2007 to promote and tour their first album Roll Away. Three teenage lads from the Isle of Man rocking around the states in their splitter-van ! In that first year they played over a hundred shows including SxSW in Austin, The Viper and Troubadour in LA, World Cafe in Philly, Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo -- plus Kimmel , GMUSA and other prime time tv and radio -- all of which won them glowing reviews. A fantastic result for the whole team, and an "all my dreams come true" experience for Davy -- who's guitar skills, age defying blues vocals, song writing and friendly, humble persona won so many hearts and fans. For him it was the start of a journey that continues unabated -- the epitome of a 21Century troubadour' BM
'In the past 21 years I must have seen Christine perform almost a thousand shows around the world -- from London's Royal Albert and Festival Hall's, to house concerts in East Stoke and Bolton; from art centres in Norwich and Bath, to folk clubs in Hitchin and York; from City Hall in Brisbane to The Shed in Nanango; The Wilshire Ebell Theatre and McCabes in LA -- and most of the worlds major music festivals including Cambridge, Glastonbury, Cropredy in the UK, Vancouver Island in Canada and Port Fairy in Australia. I missed her celebrated partnership with Clive Gregson but I've seen her as headline, support and guest -- solo, duo, band, and all combinations, including with Richard Thompson, Dave Kelly, The Travelling Gentlemen, Michael Fix, Rob Cross, The Wild Honey Orchestra, and the fabulous all women group Daphne's Flight. Everything that could be said about her amazing voice has already been said - suffice for me to add that any young artist looking to make a career in music could do worse than to follow Christine's example and in an increasingly challenging business, listen to their heart and trust in themselves to make a great life, and not just a living' BM
'My chance meeting a few years ago with BAFTA winning screenwriter Jeff Murphy in New Zealand, was one of those moments where my arrival at a junction, unsure of which way to turn, coincided with the arrival of someone else who was quite obviously heading in the direction I needed to go ! That's often how the best things happen and I'm delighted to be working with Jeff, and others, on the development of some terrifically exciting film and TV projects' BM
'One of the most talented and hard working professionals I've known, Tom already had a long, successful career as a musician, composer and music producer, before the success of his award winning record breaking musical The Soldier Of Orange. This show ran for 9 unbroken years in The Netherlands, and was due to open in a purpose built theatre in London in 2020, before the Corona-Crisis hit both schedules. Tom has continued working throughout the enforced hiatus -- writing two new musicals, composing for film, and producing movies' BM
Covid - Crisis Update January 2022
Touring and film production continue to be effected by international travel and border restrictions. Who knows how this will pan out in the next few months ? We will update when we can. Meanwhile we are happy to hear from artists, screen-writers, and song-writers who feel they have something special to offer in this super competitive industry.
