Music Made Me Do It: The Manager – Carol Crabtree

What exactly does a music manager do and how do you become one?

Carol Crabtree is the founder of Solar Management, and her story of building a career in music includes sneaking into Live Aid and a fraud that led to her adopting a roster of clients overnight.

Fate meant that she met a young tape op at Rak Studios called Nigel Godrich who’d just been asked to produce a record called OK Computer, and today she still represents the Radiohead producer, as well as artists Four Tet, Zero 7, Jimmy Somerville, audiobooks and Floating Points, as well as a host of songwriters and mixers.

This is Carol’s inspiring story, and strong case for choosing to become a manager over every other career in music.
