WHO WE ARE

Play It Loud Music is a boutique management and booking agency that is run by a tight knit team of industry specialists, musicians and, most importantly, people that are dedicated to seeing an artist's career flourish. We have an extensive music licensing catalog some of which can be previewed here. Also, we offer an "a la carte" menu of services including marketing and branding to artists, labels, producers, studios, and businesses looking for a creative edge. 

No artist is alike and everyone's goal will differ. For this reason we like to get to know our clients so that we can assign the right person to their projects in order to help them reach their goals.

Because musicians make up an important part of our company, we understand musicians, how to keep creative juices flowing, what it is like to be on the road, what a 13/9 chord sounds like, a number of ways to voice a #9b5 chord and even natural sore throat cures! We don't wear suits. We are constantly listening to new music and checking out upcoming artists. We love to be involved in the world of music and it's scene. We are creative and business smart individuals who know that things don't happen overnight, but if you work hard good things do come.

The last decade has seen revolutionary change in the music industry. With the current situation in the business, we know you can't stick to moulds based on the past. In fact, it is one of the most exciting times for artists in the industry as there is finally the opportunity for new moulds to be set. Our interest is to inspire you and help reach your objectives.

After working closely with our partners in Europe, we are proud to have toured bands for the first time in countries including but not limited to England, Germany, Spain, France, Holland not to leave out Canada, USA, and Japan.

We accept unsolicited demos and listen to EVERYTHING we are sent. If you intend to send us MP3's please send links to your web page first, a current EPK and a list of recent venues you have performed at.

We hope you take the time to visit the rest of our site. Please feel free to drop us an e-mail if you have any enquiries. We would love to get your feedback and look forward to hearing your music.

Play It Loud and be heard!!!
