Bob's artist development programme is designed to meet the needs of up and coming artists who have the talent, but lack the experience to develop and produce their material and prepare for a career in the entertainment business. Each development programme is unique to the individual or band concerned.

From a basic role as an independent consultant through to a complete package of development for both recording and “live” performance, Bob draws together his experience of working with top artists in all musical styles to help avoid some of the problems and pitfalls faced by the inexperienced novice.


Example Programme Steps

  1. After initial contact the artist sends through a demo of their material
  2. Bob gives an independent, professional overview of the potential
  3. A pre-production meeting is arranged to get to know the artist and to plan the project in more detail
  4. A recording/production schedule is planned (including the post-production strategy for promoting the artist) and a budget agreed
  5. Further pre-production meetings and rehearsals follow to ensure that the artist is totally prepared and comfortable before recording starts
  6. All aspects of the sessions are taken care of by Bob – from booking studio time, engineers and musicians to preparing any musical arrangements required and enabling the artist to deliver a performance that captures the unique essence of who they are.
  7. The artist receives a full set of mixed master tracks and backing tracks ready for the next stage – either marketing and promoting the recordings themselves or approaching established record, publishing or management companies.
  8. Ongoing advice and consultation is offered if needed.
