Tools exist to educate oneself about the music business and, more specifically, about booking. We believe it's invaluable for artists to learn how to book their own touring before they ask someone else to take over the job. Additionally, an artist should know how he or she wants to be represented before asking another party to do it for them.
In that spirit of grassroots education, we offer the following information as reference sources. Fleming Artists does not have an investment in any of these entities, nor should their listing here be considered a blanket endorsement by us. These are simply sources of info we know to exist.
