“My sessions with Amy were so beneficial and inspiring. She helped me to set and reach my goals, to find funding opportunities and guided me in shaping my career trajectory short and long term. I meet with Amy once a month and she holds me accountable to my dreams and goals. Being a freelance musician as well as trying to nurture a solo project is a big undertaking, but Amy shows me how to make anything possible by being realistic, organised and strategic. If you’re an artist and you’re ready for someone to help show you how to manage your career, I highly recommend getting in touch with Amy. ”

“I was lucky enough to be mentored by Amy as part of Music Victoria's Artist Consultancy Program. Amy possesses a wealth of knowledge, experience and ideas which she imparts with enthusiasm, as well as honesty and integrity; invaluable in the music industry. She's been a great sounding board for my own ideas and guided me through uncertainties and working with Amy has been both a rewarding and enjoyable experience, helping to further my music career.” -- Laura Coates

“My sessions with Amy have been a great asset towards my artistic development. Amy has a way of making the administration side of the arts fun and easy to understand. She helps you to build a formula and plan for any stage of your career, because she understands that each artist needs guidance for different things and specific areas. Amy is also a great listener and offers a safe space to just be you in all your rawness. Conversation flows easy and you leave each session one step closer to achieving your goals. I can say with confidence that I’ll continue to have Amy as my go to manager consultant for any future artist development needs.”

“As an independent artist, there’s just so many boxes to tick when planning for a release, which can feel incredibly overwhelming at times. Working with Amy was so valuable in gaining a trusted and experienced perspective on the industry. She was able to provide constructive advice on what areas I could be dedicating more time to, and helped me to make value-driven decisions based on my goals. Looking back on what I learnt during this time, my sessions with Amy played an integral part in fine tuning my plans for a successful release campaign. Thank you, Amy!”
