Artist Management

Oot’n’Pik is an artist management and promotion company based in South East England run by country music writer and radio presenter Chris Smith.

The aim is to work with like minded musicians to develop careers, enhance reputations and maximise the benefits of interesting opportunities.

Being ‘country’ is not an essential criteria for working with Oot’n’Pik – the business and the thinking process behind it will work for any musical genre.

Some people still claim that success in the music business requires a certain ruthlessness and a tough nasty streak – Chris does not agree. Oot’n’Pik actually stands for “One of the nicest people I know” – a description he is both proud of and determined to live up to in all his commercial activities.

Investment Opportunities

One For The Money - You For The Show

Oot’n’Pik special projects division has a limited number of opportunities each year for aspiring music promoters to dip a toe into the waters of the music business. For a modest outlay you (or your nominated representative) can co-promote with us a one-off show near to where you live. In addition to having your name associated with the event you get coveted backstage access, prime seats for a group of your friends plus, if you’re brave enough, you can walk out onto the stage to introduce the act(s) yourself. Your return will be a negotiated percentage of ticket sales and, whilst there are never any guarantees in this business, generally a half full hall will show you a profit on your investment. An ideal opportunity for a little taste of show business either as a learning experience for would be promoters or as a unique and exciting gift idea. For more details email Chris@ootnpik.com
