Managing Director

Sounds Direct Ltd

January 2000 - January 2004

I ran Sounds Direct Ltd. as the Managing Director for 4 years supplying Artists, Musicians and DJ's as Entertainment for a variety of events throughout the UK and Abroad. This role provided me with a great grounding for the Music Business and I learnt many aspects of dealing with Artists, Booking procedures and engagements as well as developing all my business skills. We employed a small number of staff to assist our development and grew the business to a roster of 70 talented professionals. During this time I was perfecting my own skills as a Musician and became aware that my love for percussion had outgrown my love of this Agency.
