Our credo - a holistic understanding of who the artist is, where his vision will take him, what makes him interesting and unique. Find the story in that, tailor it to a rare understanding of the media world, and you can bring the public to the personal. Then you've got them for the long-term. That is what Inverne Price Music Consultancy can offer.
Management and PR are two sides of the same job. They are both about understanding at a deep level the narrative arc of an artist's career, a narrative that begins and evolves with an artistic vision.
Founded on the belief that PR and artist management should be inextricably entwined and all rooted in an artist's vision, that in fact they are different aspects of the same role, it brings together two leading lights of the music industry.
Award-winning media professional James Inverne was for six years the editor of music world "bible" Gramophone, and previously Performing Arts Correspondent for Time Magazine, a regular contributor to the Wall Street Journal, CNN television and he still often writes and guests for many major media outlets. He has created client publications for Carnegie Hall, the Aspen Music Festival & School, the Sundance Film Festival and others, and founded the UK interfaith foundation Inter-Act. James is based just outside London.
Patricia Price, considered one of the most talented young professionals in the classical music industry, has been the Executive Director of Portland Piano International for the past 3 years. Before which, as Classical Product Manager for Allegro Media Group, she managed 70 classical record labels throughout the United States and Canada and in so doing helped to transform Allegro's business. A Vienna-trained pianist herself, Patricia has been heard on public radio and in venues throughout Europe and the US. Patricia is based in Los Angeles and Portland, Oregon.
The Inverne Price team also numbers specialists in artist management and in music education, social media, a China-based affiliate management operation, and further affiliates for broadcasting and for public affairs. "The team will grow, as will the client base," says Inverne, "but never beyond the point where each and every artist is given the highly personalised, and energised, approach we can give them now. And of course that only works with our rule number one - we will never take on a client in whose talent we do not believe."
