Artist Management Masterclass With Red Light’s Steve Satterthwaite (4th August 18:00 PDT)
On 4th August at 18:00 PDT, we are hosting a special live music workshop: Artist Management Masterclass With Red Light’s Steve Satterthwaite.
Stephen Satterthwaite is a managing partner at Red Light Management, one of the world’s leading artist management firms. Satterthwaite has a rich history in developing not only artist careers but also their businesses and ecosystems. A Brit who now calls Los Angeles home, he founded Hope Management and Hope Recordings in the mid-90s and has been at the forefront of new models for artists and music companies ever since.
In 2011, Satterthwaite merged Hope with Red Light Management, the 2nd biggest artist management firm globally at the time. Red Light works with superstars including Dave Matthews Band, The Strokes, Lionel Richie, Enrique Iglesias, Herbie Hancock, Phish, Chris Stapleton, Interpol, Tom Petty, and The String Cheese Incident.
Satterthwaite currently heads up Red Light’s Electronic Division which is home to some of the biggest global names in dance music – Odesza, Bonobo, Duke Dumont, Borgore, GRiZ, Bob Moses, Clozee, Subtronics, Hayden James, Anti-Up, Pluko, LSDream, Cedric Gervais, Big Wild and many more.
Satterthwaite’s clients have won Platinum Awards, Grammy Awards, and have collective streams in the billions. In addition, he is also the co-founder of Hit Command, a sister company of Red Light Management that connects the worlds of music and gaming.
Attendees can expect to take away vital tips from Satterthwaite’s extensive experience in artist management that will help them to develop their own music careers, and know what to expect when working with an artist management team.
