We are a boutique music industry partnership with global capacity based in London, England & Winterthur, Switzerland. We look back on a proud history of artist management (which we continue at AISA Music UK) and offer tailor-made, project-based artist services, such as planning and managing release campaigns, tour production and promotion, social media management, case-by-case project consultancy, and more.
Our company (formerly known as Booya Ventures Ltd) began on a tour bus, somewhere between well over 2'000 shows around the world by the two founders Kate Piatkowska and Merlin Sutter. After many, years of professional employment, musicianship and entrepreneurship in the music industry: making music, tour managing, production managing, mixing sound, planning & selling merch, planning shows, accounting, advancing, negotiating, traveling and generally pulling ourselves up by the bootstraps - we decided to take things into our own hands. Out of advising and helping artist we travelled with, our company was born.
We continue to successfully provide artist management services as well as a constantly evolving arsenal of all-around artist services. We have thorough hands-on experience in building artists from the ground up to international recording and touring careers. We are at home both in the back office, managing tours and releases, and on the front lines on the road and in the studio. In addition, having run online stores for clients including Eluveitie, Coroner, Wintersun and Blues Pills from 2012 to 2017 has provided us with in-depth experience and a thorough understanding of merchandising and direct-to-fan sales.
In 2018, Kate & Merlin joined AISA Music to head a newly established UK office. While our management clients have moved with us, KM Music continues to exist independently.
Whether you're looking for a one-off consultation, a specific campaign or you require more tailor-made expertise, feel free to get in touch.
