I’ve been involved in the music industry for 20 years across pretty much every role there is.
Starting in bands and band management in Central QLD where I grew up, I travelled various parts of the world in my 20’s, playing in Europe, NZ, Canada and Japan, then came back to Brisbane to start Transvaal Diamond Syndicate.
Aside from booking our own regular 70+ date tours around Oz and self-managing a band from start-up to becoming a regular on the national Blues Roots Festival circuit, I was noticing that there were many artists with not much idea on where to start with bookings/promotions/management etc. Thus Beats Cartel, our bookings and management agency was born.
I work with an amazing stable of acts and pass on what i’ve learnt (the hard way haha), along with growing the overall scene nationally through creating live gig and festival opportunities (Mojo Burning / Dead of Winter). Beats Cartel is now moving into bringing international acts over to Australia and sending our domestic acts overseas.
