As the co-founder of Triple M Management Ltd, Craig Pearce is the co-manager and tour manager for The Black Seeds and the full-time manager of The Phoenix Foundation. He has represented both bands and other acts such as Lawrence Arabia and Connan Mockasin since 2006; in the process releasing more than a dozen LPs and EPs in all territories across the world.
In the live realm he has ticked off everything from Glastonbury to Splendour In The Grass, Roskilde in Denmark and everything in between. He also has an extensive list of international and domestic tours under his belt, which span Europe, the US, Canada, the Pacific, Australia and NZ. On top of being a self confessed spreadsheet geek, Craig loves nothing more than budgeting, accounting and “finding” royalties.
Craig can mentor on (his words) 'anything they want to ask. I don't really hold anything back and if I don't know something I let them know'. However his strong points are: Touring NZ/World - Logistical Issues like Visas/Freight/Travel Tips/Production; Finance -All aspects - Royalties/Budgets/Accounting/IRD/Global Taxation/Importing/Exporting/Publishing; Promo/Marketing - Digital/Traditional; Festivals - How to secure festivals and be ready for offers/how to negotiate fees.; Band Dynamics - the ins and outs of dealing with multiple personalities!;Recording/Production - the ins and outs of funding, recording, producing and releasing music
