Former Director Creative Affairs Peer Music UK
Kevin Reynolds is someone I've been fortunate to know for a while and a true friend. He takes care of his artists and works round the clock to get them unique opportunities.
I asked him to reflect as we come to the end of 2017 on where we're up to as an industry, the priorities of the artist managers and what the artists need.
Great read, thanks Kevin.
