This ‘ARTIST MANAGEMENT AGREEMENT’ (“Agreement”) is made by and entered into between
[ARTIST NAME] (the “Artist”) and [MANAGER NAME] (the “Manager”), and is executed as a binding agreement as of the Effective Date (Artist and Manger are sometimes herein referred to collectively as the “Parties” or individually as a “Party”).
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE
- WHEREAS, Artist wishes to obtain advice, guidance, counsel, and direction in the development and furtherance of his career as a musician, recording, and performing artist and in such new and different areas as his artistic talents can be developed and exploited; and
- WHEREAS, Manager by reason of Managers contacts, experience and background, is qualified to render such advice, guidance, counsel, and direction to Artist;
NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual promises and other good and valuable consideration considered hereinafter, the receipt and sufficiency of which are acknowledged by the Parties, the Artist and the Manger agree as follows:
Artist hereby appoints Manager as the Artist’s sole personal manager in all matters usually and normally within the jurisdiction and authority of personal manager, including but not limited to the advice, guidance, counsel, and direction specifically referred to in Paragraph 1 hereof. Artist agrees to seek such advice, guidance, counsel, and direction from Manager exclusively and agrees that he will not engage any other agent, representative, or manager to render similar services, and that he will not perform said services on his own behalf and he will not negotiate, accept, or execute any agreement, understanding, or undertaking concerning his career as an actor, musician, recording and performing artist without Manager’s prior consent.
Manager is not required to render exclusive services to Artist or to devote his entire time or the entire time of any of Manager’s employees to Artist’s affairs. Nothing herein shall be construed as limiting Manager’s right to represent other persons whose talents may be similar to or who may be in competition with Artist or to have and pursue business interests which may be similar to or may compete with those of Artist.
Artist hereby irrevocably appoints Manager for the term of this Agreement and any extensions hereof as his true and lawful attorney-in-fact to sign, make, execute, accept, endorse, collect and deliver any and all bills of exchange, checks, and notes as his said attorney; to demand, sue for, collect, recover, and receive all goods, claims, money, interest and other items that may be due him or belong to him; and to make, execute, and deliver receipts, releases, or other discharges therefore under sale or otherwise and to defend, settle, adjust, compound, submit to arbitration and compromise all actions, suits, accounts, reckonings, claims, and demands whatsoever that are or shall be pending in such manner and in all respects as in any way limiting the foregoing; generally to do, execute and perform any other act, deed, or thing whatsoever deemed reasonable that ought to be done, executed, and performed of any and every nature and kind as fully effectively as Artist could do if personally present; and Artist hereby ratifies and affirms all acts performed by Manager by virtue of this power of attorney.
Artist expressly agrees that he will not on his own behalf exert any of the powers herein granted to Manager by the foregoing power of attorney without the express prior written consent of Manager and that all sums and considerations paid to Artist by reason of his artistic endeavors may be paid to Manager on his behalf.
