Welcome

Sound Advice was established in 1990, initially to do concert promotions. Over the years, we have had the opportunity to work with an international roster of talented musicians 1994 marked the first management signing,  legendary UK singer-songwriter John Martyn, and we quickly earned a reputation as a tenacious advocate for musicians. We have worked with an eclectic roster of artists in a variety of genres, including singer/songwriters, rock, jazz and world music artists. 

We are also working on  independent projects with comedian Jake Johannsen, a 46 time guest on Letterman and star of multiple Showtime and HBO specials.  We will be co-producing with Jake, a series of tours in music venues and other venues not dedicated solely to comedy. We also created his new website.
