Sound Advice was established in 1990. Over the years, we have had the opportunity to work with an international roster of talented musicians.  While we primarily act as artist managers, we occasionally take on individual projects, developing new markets for established artists in cooperation with their agents and managers.

We also have a new independent project coming online, working with comedian Jake Johannsen, a 45 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.

If you are an independent musician, and would like to discuss representation, please contact us before forwarding a package to the address on our contact page. Read more

For artists just starting out or looking to take it to the next level, we have a variety of a la carte options available on a contract basis. Call or email for more information
