Jackie Shaw Management
Counsel and manage indie alternative/pop groups focusing on educating musicians to understand their role in handling their own business and administering their own music licensing, publishing, marketing, etc.
Years in Record Business:
1) Grammy co-nominee for “Most Original Album Cover Concept” for “Pass On This Side”, ESP Records.
2) As manager, mentored and directed the high school band “Another Man’s Trash” to achieve success as the national 2004 VH1/School of Rock Battle of the Bands Grand Prize Winners, with their Paramount produced music video of their prize-winning song being aired on VH1.
3) As musician, performed and/or recorded with various artists including Freddie Scott, David Peel, the MNM’s (Bomp Records), and Leslie Fradkin (of “Beatlemania” fame as George Harrison”)
4) As songwriter, wrote theme song for various television series pilots as well as 2 songs for original hit Broadway show (but immediately learned the importance of copyrights after legal entanglements ensued, thus thrusting me forward to pursue a legal education and career).
My goal is to create a self-sustaining non-profit record company / publishing company / educational environment where musicians are signed to a label, on a limited basis, and can develop their creative sound while gaining skills in handling their own business and administering their own music licensing, publishing, marketing, etc. At the end of the musician’s term, I hope that we have helped them achieve self-sufficiency and success in this fast-changing worldwide music business.
Follow your passion . . . but be prepared. ALWAYS do unto others as you have them do unto you because you were given your music gift to make sure this world is a better place.
