Artist Growth Evolves into Music Industry's Most Advanced All-Encompassing Artist Management Platform for Live Touring
Artist Teams at Universal Music Group, Red Light Management, Maverick, Vector Management and more adopt the cloud-based live touring software
Partnership with Pinnacle Financial Partners fuels 2018 growth
Nashville, TN -- Artist Growth, the industry's leading artist management application, has evolved into music's most advanced live touring platform. Since its inception in 2012, AG has grown from a tour-managing tool to an all-encompassing platform that can be used by business managers, production managers, labels, promoters, agents, publicists, travel agents, drivers and the musicians themselves -- all at the same time. From arena-level acts with 200+ team members to small indie developing acts and growing mid-level bands, AG can be used to make touring more effective and easier than ever.
Team members can now organize everything from events calendars, day sheets, travel, deal info, tasks, tour merchandise, sales, tickets, finances and reports. AG uses a customizable, point-and-click interface that works on desktop and mobile (Android and iOS), and, unlike other programs, AG is a truly cloud-based system in which anyone on a team can be logged in at the same time and give updates in real-time.
Recent milestones include:
-Record label Universal Music Group adopting AG
-Executives and managers at Top management companies including Red Light Management, Vector Management and Maverick now using AG to keep track of tours and streamline communication
-A new strategic partnership and equity investment with Pinnacle Financial Partners aiming to bring a new model of financial services to touring entertainers
-Tracking more than $2.5 billion in tour revenue and nearly $700 million in expenses, with total event guarantees tracked at around $1.7 billion
