Ellroy Jones discusses the importance of talent.


In the world of band management one thing is a must – talent.

I have worked with some of the best in the business. And I can help you, too. Just send me a link to one of your tracks. Make it a good one – this is your opportunity. Many people these days are eschewing the management route for TV reality contests. I would like to point out that that is not the way to foster a long and fruitful career in music.

I once met a young man with quite an exceptional voice. I took him under my wing, we did a few club gigs, cut a demo. And then he brutally stabbed me in back and repayed my kindness, belief, loyalty, sweat, blood, tears and free minutes by entering just such a show.

And you know what? He won.

I won’t tell you his name, to do so would be crass, but you’d know him if you saw him. And do you know where he is now? Iceland. First he did the ads, now he actually works in the back room in the one in the precinct in Rhyl. I hear he’s sniffed all his jungle money up his nose and is back with his mum.

Point is – a career is built on many things, and one of those things is integrity.

I have integrity. Email me.
