A Few Words About Tim Sweeney
Besides the fact that you have seen mentions and detailed write-ups in hundreds of articles, and while he is the most talked about man in interviews with artists (many whom you may call your influences or your favorite artists), it still may not be clear to you who he is.
To put it simply, Tim Sweeney is the music industry’s most highly sought after expert and consultant in the fields of artist development, label development, distribution, publicity, radio promotion, internet marketing and retail marketing. His career in the industry spans from his days as an artist himself, to almost every position at a major label to becoming the President of a successful management company to becoming the author of one of the International Best Selling books regarding the music industry today: TIM SWEENEY’S GUIDE TO RELEASING INDEPENDENT RECORDS.
Over the last 20 years, he has helped several major labels (Columbia, Epic, MCA, Universal, Warner Bros., Capitol, Mercury, Polygram, Revolution, Hollywood (and their sub-labels), and well known independent labels (Restless, Metal Blade, Enigma, Accretions, etc.) develop the careers of some of their most promising and successful artists of all time.
Tim has personally worked with and developed the careers of more than 2,300 artists to date. Over the last few years, he presented over 200 free music business workshops around the country (at his own expense) to more than 20,000 artists, songwriters, musicians, managers and independent labels. He has also been asked to be a featured and keynote speaker at music conventions such as SXSW, EAT’M, The Songwriter’s Expo, The Northern California Songwriter’s Association and The Richmond Music Conference to name a few. He has also been asked by organizations like NARAS to speak at special events like Grammy’s In The Schools. For the last 3 years, he has been asked to be a featured author for Borders Books & Music at the Los Angeles Book Festival (which is attended by 100,000 people).
Tim has received a number of awards for his work with aspiring artists including, The Hardest Working Man In The Industry award from The Musician’s Trade Journal and The Best Music Publicist in Los Angeles (LAMA). Last year, Lexington’s Who’s Who placed him on the exclusive list of the Most Important Business Leaders in the United States. Previously, the television broadcast of one of his last workshops in Detroit received the coveted 2000 Bronze Telly Award for Excellence in Programming over 14,000 other television programs.
Today, Tim continues his music business workshops around the country as well as, his 4 day intensive workshop entitled, Music Strategies which empower independent artists, musicians, songwriters, independent labels and aspiring music industry professionals. His 5 books are read and the information put into use, by artists in 33 countries around the world. He continues to personally work with independent artists in the development of their careers and serves as a private consultant to the music industry’s leading Presidents, CEOs and industry leaders and visionaries, who ask for his guidance in developing their artists and redeveloping their companies.
The impact of Tim’s work with independent artists has earned him the title, "The Father of the Independent Music Movement" by industry professionals, the press and record labels around the world.
