this is me

sue

Thank you for coming here. It means you have a some interest in who I am and what I’m about. I try my best to make the read worth your while 🙂

Music is my passion; I want to help develope longlasting careers for performing artists. Becoming knowledgable in social media, entrepreneurship, strategic planning and artist management is what I pursue. The goal is to establish a boutique consulting buero. Now this might sound strange but I don’t know where this still vague idea is going to take me but I’m full of energy and passion for it and I will push to provide value along the way.

Besides that I want to offer my experience to whoever might need it. Don’t hesitate to use me as a resource.. ask me about touring in Europe, booking artists in general, how to start up a business in the US or Germany, productivity tools for freelancers and whatever else comes in mind. I like to help. Talk to me!

NUTSHELLS

very 1st stop – 16yrs old – PR AGENCY

Did press clippings and random office administration for a really horrible boss. Grew a very thick skin and learned how motivate myself without outside approval.


1st Stop – 19yrs old – ADVERTISING AGENCY

Had a great boss who let me hold presentations and manage projects for Blue Chip clients like Sony and Siemens right from the start. I picked up confidence.

2nd Stop – 23yrs old – STRATEGIC PLANNING

Interned at one of the leading Planning Agency’s at the time. Worked with great minds and learned how to get to the bottom of things.


3rd Stop – 25yrs old – MUSIC INDUSTRY

Again, I interned because I was determined to become an influencer in the HipHop world. I started in event planning for a big festival and local night clubs, then moved on to become a talent agent. I got to look behind the scenes and meet some impressive people, even got to travel the world a bit. Learned: HipHop isn’t everything.

31/2 Stop – 26yrs old – COMING TO AMERICA

The big move to NYC. I took my job with me and started up the US office of the talent agency I was working for at the time. Learned that all things that glitter ain’t gold but I’m free!


4th Stop – 29yrs old – REMIX

2009 is the year of change and I’m off to start my own venture. Even though the economy is bad, I’m optimistic. I feel like anything is possible. These shambles are ground for innovation. It’s just a matter of courage & a little bit of luck.

    Hello. I found you on Sonicbids and it would be great to speak with you about overseas touring. It’s on our list of “things to do” and it sure would be nice to speak with someone who’s in the know!

    thanks!

    Hello, Sue. I also saw your commentary on SonicBids and then came to your site here. I have decided to spend a great deal of my time targeting audiences in the countries I want to spend my time in– Greece, Italy, France, Spain, and Portugal (and others). I have confirmed that my genre of music will do very well in these countries, especially since some of the associated talent I am collaborating with have a presence over there, which will generate some buzz. Additionally I am hitting the other side of the globe– Australia and NZ. With a debut record out in July I will only have 5-7 months to plan a tour and I would love to talk with you about the logistics. It’s overwhelming to me, but I am determined to make it work.

    I would really appreciate your help. There is quite a bit to do.

    My plan is to hit Australia in Dec/Jan and then Europe in May/June.

    Thanks,

    John

      Hi John,

      your plans sound great! Please hit me with an email and further details. Have you booked gigs already? I can definitely help you with some tips regarding travel, the visas you might need (Australia for example) and the generals of setting up shows.

      Send me an email to me (at) susannekrell.com or catch me on skype (susannekrell)

      Looking forward to speaking to you!
      Sue
