James Inverne Music Consultancy was born of a mission to help artists articulate, commmunicate and achieve their creative visions. Former Gramophone Magazine editor James Inverne works intensively and imaginatively with every one of a select number of clients. "Artists can deeply affect their audiences," says James, "but the key to bringing them with you, and expanding their number, is being able to yourself understand, follow and live your story. And you must invite the industry as much as audiences with you on that artistic journey. The story comes first. Making it happen comes next."
Services include artist management, public relations, branding work, recordings, concert producing, as well as writing and editing.
Some of the clients with whom James works are on a confidential basis and unable to be disclosed, but as well as the clients detailed on this website, James is proud to have recently worked with (among others):
James is also in demand as a speaker on various aspects of the music industry and has participated in talks and platforms at, variously, Chamber Music America (NYC), Classical:NEXT (Vienna), the Association of British Orchestras conference (Glasgow), the Colburn School of Arts (Los Angeles), and Universal Music's sales conference (London), while as Editor of Gramophone he would annually co-host the Gramophone Awards. In the media, James has commentated on the arts extensively for BBC Television and Radio, CNN, NPR and elsewhere. In 2016 James edited Carnegie Hall's official 125th annniversary commemorative magazine.
