DUST2DUST MUSIC NETWORK
Welcome! Thank you for visiting our new website.
Dust2Dust Music Network is comprised of three distinct service centers, they are as follows:
What is an artist representative and why does an artist or band need one? The fact is that not every artist or band does. If you're performing just for fun and have no desire to make money, then you most likely don't need artist representation. However, if you anticipate performing professionally and want to be paid a fair sum for your performances then a professional manager-agent is essential.
But where do you find the right manager-agent? There's no easy answer to that question. Our suggestion is simply to choose someone that you can 'trust' and that knows the entertainment business.
The trust factor is commonly referred to in legal and business circles as 'the fiduciary relationship.' Most band's first temptation is to hire a family member, which is usually ideal from the trust perspective. However, that usually is a very bad idea from a business stand point, unless you're as fortunate as some bands are, to have a family member that attends every performance and I do mean, every performance and that comprehends the complex and constantly evolving entertainment business.
Beyond this school of thought, Dust2Dust Music Network , is a qualified manager-agent team.
There are many businesses and individuals that will jump at the chance to manage artists or bands. Some are quite good at what they do, others, not so much. Still others will roll out pages and pages of familiar acts aimed at impressing you into believing they are the solution to every challenge you may have. Trust me, they're not.
In short, we're not interested in trying to lure you in with that approach. In fact, we are extremely selective in deciding what artists or bands we will manage. So, you might ask, what are you looking for in an artist or band?
Musician Performers Wanted
We are presently recruiting jazz and rock musicians with the following skill sets for paid projects. Collaboration is encouraged:

The Chilean dessert is perhaps the most inhospitable place on earth. A small oasis is home to its people. Self sustaining, they cultivate their own food and virtually everything they need to survive.
An American recently visited and was taken back by the content nature of the people he met. On one occasion, he asked an indigenous woman how she and her people could be so happy living under such harsh and isolated conditions. Without hesitation, the young woman answered:
'When you love what you do; you have what you need.'
We've adopted this philosophy because it bears a striking similarity to passionate musicians we've met and frankly, to how we view the entertainment business.
There is no career that offers a broader influence among people than music. The various genres of music contribute endlessly to the lives of their many listeners. From soothing jazz to soft tunes, the passionate sounds of country, classic rock, dance pop and smash mouth metal. It's all music. The insatiable appetite for it transcends every culture and every continent on our planet.
The prospect of delivering a quality product to as many people as possible motivates us to use our experience and the enormous pool of talent available to us to inspire and support musicianship, live music.
We are a uniquely dynamic management team with a wealth of business experience. Including rare hands-on tour experience in the entertainment industry If you feel that you or your group are ready to advance to the next level, you will need a professional manager, agent and advisor (consultant).
While others will produce endless lists of artists they represent, we intentionally limit our interests to select artists or groups that demonstrate a genuine passion for live music or the arts.
Mediocrity is not in our vocabulary. We are interested in artists that are committed to improving their skills in order to equip themselves to refine their craft prior to taking on the enormous challenge of performing professionally and running a successful music enterprise.
While starting a band may not have the feel of a business at the outset, every successful artist -musician can attest that; inevitably any serious music pursuit will require business savvy to survive.
