WHO WE WORK WITH
Will Joseph Cook
Will releases on his own label 'Bad Hotel' via brand new Label The Vertex, co-owned by Pat and Stephen Taverner [East City Management]. Remote Control run all aspects of the label, with a bespoke set of independent consultants in the UK, Europe, SEA and Latin America, as well as via a license in AUS/NZ. Luke works closely with Will and has established a strong digital marketing campaign resulting in the latest single Be Around Me, with over 20 million streams across all formats including an ongoing viral Tiktok campaign. Will recently went out on tour with Dodie Clark playing new material to adoring fans, with new music coming soon..!
The third act to join The Vertex family, Big Image hail from Birmingham creating hands in the air, indie festival anthems. As with other Vertex releases Remote Control are responsible for all aspects of day to day label management for UK and ROW. They have just released their first single 'Parallel Love Affair' with a full EP release for 2022. Past supports include The Twang, DMA'S, The Sherlocks and more.
Suzi released her first single 'Leave Britney Alone' via The Vertex this summer. Suzi is currently buried in the Studio working on new material. Her previous track 'Eat Dem Apples' has been the soundtrack to the recent Iphone 12 campaign and has just been included on the soundtrack for the Netflix new teen pic "To All The Boys".
Signed to one of the most exciting Aussie Indie labels, Space44, Ruby Fields does things on her own terms - a person after our own heart! Overseeing and advising on release strategy for the UK market, Ruby recently released her debut album to much critical acclaim. As the fantastic story develops in Australia, further global opportunities are opening up. Honest, heartfelt, no bull shit guitar music. Ruby Fields is the next big thing.
We have been working with Graace since autumn 2018. Signed to Sony for Australia and New Zealand, Remote Control stepped in to arrange a ROW distribution and promotion set up for her first EP "Self Sabotage". A fruitful partnership with The Orchard resulted in over 75m streams to date. After a hiatus, Graace is back in the studio working on her much anticipated follow up and casually playing LIVE SHOWS in Aus at the iconic MCG amongst other venues. Graace has just shared her first new music for over a year, a heartfelt lo fi ballad called 'Sentimental'.
Remote Control has worked in the background with the UK Partisan team for over 2 years. Working with such a creative and hardworking team has been a delight and we provide support across various elements of their amazing roster, as a sounding board and encouragement of their own and their artist's ideas and plans. The work they have done on Idles and Fontaines DC, in particular, has been a complete highlight, with the 2019 Mercury awards taking a special place in our heart. Watch out for some fantastic new acts to come in 2021.
The minute we heard Luna, we knew we had to work with her. An incredible talent from Germany via Amsterdam, we work closely with her management team FRIDAYMUSIC, and Luna herself to plan and strategize across all departments for her upcoming releases. We assembled promo teams in the UK, Germany and Netherlands and released her debut EP 'Taking The Blow' to widespread critical acclaim. A 2nd EP is in the works for 2022.
Signed to London based Independent Label 'Tenwest', Naomi Banks is a powerhouse soulful jazz & RnB singer/songwriter hailing from the UK. A recent addition to the Remote Control family, we are working closely with the Tenwest team in building on Naomi's already growing reputation as one of the most exciting up and coming female vocal artists out there. Garnering attention from BBC Radio 1 & 1Xtra there is an EP release this May followed by more music later this Summer. Quite frankly there's never been a better time to get to know Naomi!
Label client Tenwest introduced us to the hip hop prop earlier this year to assist on developing a marketing and socials strategy for the enigmatic rapper. Utilising his unique position of being a professional rugby player alongside his abundance of musical talent, the campaign is developing excellently within taste-maker circles and poised for commercial success.
Co-managed by Pat, Remote Control worked on the management side with parent label BMG on their 25 year anniversary album release in early 2020. Now working closely with the band on their moving live schedule and merch sales while preparing for more releases when we are able.
Initially engaged to advise on Global distribution deals for Melanie's on Red Girl Media label, Remote Control eventually ran the global project management campaign for her October 2020 self titled album. Weaving it's way around the complete change around just as the project was launched, thanks to hard work from Melanie and her management team, great global promotion teams and some effective marketing, D2C and retail planning, the album was Melanie's most successful album for 20 years, achieving the Number 1 Independent release and 7 in the main charts.
Continuing Remote Control's love affair with the best Ireland has to offer, we recently started working with ROWAN, a Dublin based 3 piece. After daytime national radio playlists in their home territory, the campaign is now broadening out into other territories with 6Music supporting. New material is ready to go and we'll be working closely with the band and management team to plan their new album focusing on the UK, Ireland and Continental Europe.
