RedLeaf Artist Management & Services

Artist Management

As music managers we listen. We listen to your music, your ideas, your dreams and your goals until we understand your vision of success. Then we work with you to develop a plan to get there.

That’s not the end. It’s only the beginning. Once we have the plan, we are there with you, supporting you all along the way.

We work both with you and for you.  We’ll work together on marketing, promotion, building your fan base, merchandise, your calendar, distributing your music, budgeting, grant writing, showcasing, touring or any of the myriad of tasks involved in running your music career. When you need us, we’re there. Along the way we help develop and manage your key relationships.

Whether you work with us for one event or for your developing career, our approach is friendly, open and honest. We delight in seeing your career in music grow and flourish.

Let’s not forget business management, the number crunching, the contracts and the bookkeeping. Your ability to pursue your music depends on sound financial management. That’s one of the important roles we play as managers – working hard to keep your finances healthy and on track.

All good plans need regular review and adjustment as the market, your music and your artistic needs dictate. That’s where our strength lies. We manage the ever changing plan and all the details and challenges that go with it, allowing you to focus on creating the music you love.

Looking forward to working with you!

About Trish Bolechowsky:

After becoming increasingly involved in the local music scene, Trish Bolechowsky initially stepped into the role of music manager at the request of an artist. She went on to work with several emerging folk artists through RedLeaf Music, which she founded in Ottawa in early 2014. Trish helps artists get the business side of their music career organized and working for them using her formal Project Management training and her small business experience. Along with offering stand-alone career consultations, Trish is an artist manager for independent artists.

Trish presents and supports both weekly and monthly local music series via RedLeaf Music. The series feature singer-songwriters in a listening room environment, similar to a house concert but in public spaces.

In addition, Trish co-hosts The Brew on CKCU, a weekly community radio show on CKCU 93.1 FM with a focus on in-studio acoustic performances and interviews with artists living in or traveling through Ottawa. She has been involved for several years as a volunteer with the Stan Rogers Folk Festival in Nova Scotia and with the stage crew (currently crew leader or Hat) at the Blue Skies Music Festival in Ontario.

The Brew on CKCU 93.1 FM, Mondays 7 to 8:30 am
