WHY CHOOSE UAU ?

We always put the artist first. We believe in creating a unique, outside the box approach with proven methods of developing an artists career based on success that is real and tangible and not just perception.

Learning To Fly

Everyone wants to jump on a moving train, but nobody wants to shovel the coal to get it going. Fact, major labels no longer develop artists. They are looking to sign artists that already have a growing and engaged fanbase, are socially relevant with numbers to prove it with product in hand that is ready for distribution to radio, retail and digital outlets.

So how do you go from your bedroom with a dream to showcasing your talent on the biggest stages? Artist Development. Our team works with our artist clients in growing all aspects of their career, from songwriting, production, stage presence and style to social media growth, engaging and growing a fanbase and creating and releasing content. We basically do everything a record label does. We create the buzz, we build the momentum. We develop artists that are ready for the next level, whether that be a major label or a successful independent artist career. The choice is yours.

You’re only as good as your representation 

Successful artist careers do not happen overnight or by themselves. They require the guidance of someone who has the relationships and work ethic to create opportunity. That is the job of an artist manager. At UAU, we believe in creating and overseeing growth opportunities for the artists we represent. Our artist managers have excelled in the areas of touring, endorsements, branding, marketing, strategic partnerships, feature showcases and brand identity and awareness.

Navigating the modern music business is full of challenges. It’s important to have a management team that can not only set goals and achieve them, but sincerely has the artists best interest at heart. We represent our clients with professionalism and dignity in a business that often has neither.

The struggle for social relevance is real

Word of mouth has always been the best form of advertising. Today, nothing is more powerful than social media, especially for building a successful artist career in music. Most artists use social media incorrectly. Most believe that it’s about getting as many “Likes”, “Followers” and “Friends” as possible, that could not be further from the truth. We at UAU believe in quality over quantity when it comes to an artists social media presence. Engaged fans are all that matter. We see artists all the time who have 2 million, or more, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and SnapChat followers, but when they put out a new record they only sell to a fraction of a percent of their social media numbers. We believe in growing our artists fanbase with engaged social media users, fans that actually are more likely to buy your record, EP, t-shirt and/or a concert ticket and are more likely to share your music, share your videos and actually help you spread the word about your music and career.

We have successfully partnered with Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, SnapChat and other growing social media platforms to allow our team to effectively identify and target potential fans for each of our clients based on genre, like interests, geographical location, social profiles, buying and search habits and past engagements across social media. We know how to engage these platforms with creative content and promotions that grow your fanbase and encourage engagement on every level. We specialize in creating and implementing solid and successful social media campaigns for all of our clients.

Get by with a little help from your friends

UAU currently advises several independent record labels, publishing companies, managers and content creation companies. We have over 30 years experience in all aspects of the music business. We can put that expertise to work for your company for a fraction of the cost of hiring additional employees. We can grow your business.
