CAN WE SEND YOU OUR DEMO?
No, because we aren't a record label. Feel free to contact us, but please be specific and tell us WHY are you contacting us. If you don't know what you want, we won't know either. Messages like "please listen and tell us what you think" will be ignored. Please also do not send any multimedia files such as mp3 or videos through email - messages like that will be immediatelly deleted.

WE ARE LOOKING FOR LABEL, CAN YOU HELP US TO GET SIGNED?
Yes, that's one of the services that we offer. But first of all, please leave your ego behind the doors when you contact us, as you may hear "sorry guys, it's not your time yet", or "there are few things you need to improve". Please also understand that we aren't able to work with everyone, as our resources are limited, and our schedule is quite tight.

WHO IS BAND MANAGER OR ARTIST MANAGER?
An "artist manager", aka "band manager", is in charge of the business side of being in a band. Often, band members are great at the creative side of things, but aren't so great at promoting themselves, or negotiating deals. In a very general sense, the task of a manager is taking care of the day to day running of the band's career, so the band can focus on the creative side of things.

WHAT IS PRE-PRODUCTION?
In the music industry, pre-production is a process whereby recording artists spend time creating and refining their musical ideas. The artist thus produces a song's demo recording, or rough draft, in order to preestablish the song's creative promise. This reduces the time and money spent in expensive recording studios. The goal is to enter into the major recording phase of production with the basic and most promising ideas having been already established.

WHO IS PRODUCER (MUSIC PRODUCER, RECORD PRODUCER)?
A record producer is an individual working within the music industry, whose job is to oversee and manage the recording ("production") of an artist's music. A producer has many roles that may include, but are not limited to: gathering ideas for the project, selecting songs and/or musicians, coaching the artist and musicians in the studio or during the pre-production process, controlling the recording sessions, and supervising the entire process through mixing and mastering. Producers also often take on a wider entrepreneurial role, with responsibility for the budget, schedules, and negotiations.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN EXECUTIVE PRODUCER AND PRODUCER?
Today, the recording industry has two kinds of producers: executive producer and music producer. They have different roles. While an executive producer oversees a project's finances and schedule, a music producer oversees the creation of the music. Executive producer, a music executive or record executive is person within a record label who works in senior management, making executive decisions over the label's artists. Their role varies greatly but in essence, they can oversee several aspects of a record label, including A&R, contracts, management, publishing, production, manufacturing, marketing and promotion, distribution, copyright, as well as other things.

WE WANT TO RECORD / MIX / DO MASTERING WITH YOU. HOW TO PROCEED?
Nothing easier: just contact us, send us details about your band or project, and tell us what you need. We are here for you!

CAN YOU BOOK US OR TAKE CARE OF BOOKING OF OUR BAND?
Gabriel Management is not a booking agency, so the answer is no. But we sometimes help with booking of artists that already work with us.

CAN YOU PUT US ON SOME FESTIVALS YOU ORGANIZE? CAN YOU PUT US ON SOME SUMMER FESTIVALS?
Since 2009 we don't organize any own festivals.
