Imagem A&R Manager visits SAE

18 May 2017

Leo Chantzaras from Imagem Music - the leading independent music publishing company in the world - visited SAE this week to deliver an exclusive masterclass.

Before joining Imagem as their Senior International Artists and Repertoire Manager, Leo was an established writer and producer himself, selling 25 Gold and Platinum records with Peer Music, Chrysalis and BMG.

He spent yesterday’s session explaining to SAE students what it’s like to work for a major establishment, representing household names like Daft Punk and Mark Ronson.

He also explored what it takes to become a successful artist, producer, and manager in today’s globalised world and left students with key advice for their career:

“Do not hide your music, promote it!”

“Soundcloud is one of my favourite platforms for A&Rs. Put your music up, share it with people. It’s not about sending MP3 anymore. Everything is online now.”
