September 19 2016, Issue 517 Talent Agents: More Than A Bargain Tom Cruise immortalized sports agents – if not talent agents of all kinds – when he garishly repeated his client’s demand to “Show me the money!” in Jerry Maguire 20 years ago. Securing premium compensation is a big part of the job for radio’s talent agents, though today there’s much more at play than money. Pulling back the curtain on one of the more mysterious aspects of the industry, Country Aircheck caught up with three leading agents to find out exactly what they do, how their profession has changed in recent years and Paul Anderson who should consider their services. Minding Your Business: Talent agents, simply, are in the business of you. “We manage our clients’ radio careers, find employment opportunities, negotiate their contracts and help build their brands,” The Weiss Agency’s Eric Weiss summarizes. “We make sure our clients are known by decision-makers throughout the industry, Glenn Goldstein increase their overall exposure and help them navigate the business side of radio so they can concentrate on the creative.” “What people sometimes forget is that it is a business,” adds Workhouse Media’s Paul Anderson. “If the talent is the CEO, we’re the chief operating officers. It’s not just an employer hiring the talent to do a job. And if you run your business that way, that’s likely how you’re going to be treated.

Game On No. 1 songs, multi-platinum albums, sold-out tours . and video game placement? Electronic Arts (EA) Worldwide Executive/Pres. Of Music Steve Schnur discusses how video games are widening artist exposure, breaking new artists and even breaking down genre walls. 2 0 1 6 Co u n t r y A i rc h e c k — A l l r i g h t s r e s e r v e d .

Page 3 September 19, 2016 Schnur has been with EA for 15 years (and is also a Sea Gayle Music writer), but before that he worked in programming in the early days of MTV and held promotion and A&R posts at labels including Elektra, Chrysalis, Capitol and Arista/Nashville. While gaming soundtracks have typically been rock and hip hop-heavy, Schnur has wanted to give country a bigger placement for years. “I love country music,” he says. “It’s in my blood, so it’s a personal thing for me. Many people outside of country think of it as being a female 35 format, when in fact, it’s absolutely opposite. I find it to be young, hip and edgy – Steve Schnur and that parallels the gaming audience. It’s very different than when Pam Tillis and Alan Jackson ruled the airwaves. The last time I went to a Brantley Gilbert or Florida Georgia Line show, I guarantee you the large majority of that audience have picked up an Xbox or PS4 in their recent past.” Among EA’s titles are Madden NFL, Fifa and The Sims. Madden NFL 17 launched Aug. 23 and its soundtrack included Blake Shelton’s “Straight Outta Cold Beer,” Brantley Gilbert’s “It’s About To Get Dirty,” Jason Aldean’s “Lights Come On,” High Valley’s “Young Forever” and Cale Dodds’ “Acting Our Age” – alongside titles by Lil Wayne, Fitz and the Tantrums and Flo Rida. [Listen here.] Joy Stick: “I’m going to tell you what I’m not looking for,” says Schnur of potential pitches. “I’m not looking for songs about gaming. If I had a dime for every major hip hop or rock or sometimes country artist who has pitched me songs about PS4 buttons, I’d have a lot of dimes. [And] it’s not necessarily fast tempo. It can be mid-tempo, but has to deliver an emotional feeling. You’re getting ready to go on the field and take on the Rams and Patriots. So it has to feel like it’s something that could end up in an NFL trailer or a film about football. “I’m also looking for songs that are new and fresh,” he adds. “And with the audience we can deliver – which is estimated to be over a billion impressions for every song in a Fifa or Madden game – that certainly helps build a significant familiarity.” Schnur says many times he’s witnessed the effects of including a rock or hip hop song in Madden six months before its radio add date. “By the time KROQ/Los Angeles got it, the PD would call me and say, ‘It’s testing 90% familiar and we haven’t even played it yet.’ So we can be great partners with radio in that regard, because like it or not, people who listen to the radio are also playing video games.” Electronics Express: In the country realm, Schnur says former Clemson University footballer Lee Brice and Brantley Gilbert are perfect examples of artists who dream of Madden stardom. “Lee’s played Madden forever,” he says. “That was one of his goals. And Brantley and his band play it. He hears those songs every day. The second Madden 17 came out, I got a call from Jason Aldean’s manager saying, ‘Hey, can you please send games for the guys on the bus? They all want to hear the song in the game.’ What a huge compliment, that it means so much to an artist to be in it. Artists are the closest connection to their own fans. They know that’s what their fans do – they play video games.” The reach goes beyond sports. Schnur recounts a story about Lady Antebellum being featured in The Sims, a game in which the characters have their own language. “When ‘Need You Now’ first came out, Lady Antebellum re-recorded it in Simlish,” he says. “They’ve come up to me several times since over the years, saying people still request, ‘Can you sing it in Simlish this time?’” Schnur starts programming songs for his games well over a year in advance, looking at a thousands songs before narrowing down to the final 40 or 50. “We really want something that ends up on the radio,” he says, “something that ends up winning awards, something mainstream.” And many times, something country. “I don’t program country for the sake of it being country,” he says. “I program the songs I think are going to matter in the year ahead. Or at the very least, can matter if we give them the right avenue of exposure. We have to feel in our gut that it’s a song that will stick with that gamer for a long time. “If you mention the genre of country to people who like rock and hip hop, they turn their nose up,” he adds. “But if you put a Brantley Gilbert song next to a hip hop song in Madden, all of a sudden it becomes cool. And they forget there’s a genre attached to it. That’s what I hope to do here. I hope to break a few artists and pull down more of those barriers.” –Wendy Newcomer Chart Chat Congrats to Dierks Bentley, Royce Risser, Bobby Young, David Friedman and the whole Capitol crew on scoring this week’s No. 1 with “Different For Girls.” The song, which also features Elle King, has recently been certified Gold by the RIAA. And kudos to Young and the team on notching 51 adds for Jon Pardi’s “Dirt On My Boots,” topping this week’s board. Dierks Bentley News & Notes R&J Broadcasting has agreed to buy eight stations from Red Rock, including Classic Country KKIN/Aitkin, MN and KSDM/ International Falls, MN.

Texas Tornados: (Jerry Fuentes) Their accordion player, Flaco Jiménez, played on our album and played with Diego’s dad (Emilio) for years. They are The Last the root of what we’re doing.

(DJ) I’ve heard the name ‘Yanni’ but I’ve never dove into his catalog. “Important” music you just don’t get: (DN) Jazz. It’s too many notes. I actually played in jazz band in high school and my instructor would always say, “You’re not going anywhere if you don’t know how to read music.” I think that’s what turned me off. (JF) There’s some rap artists I don’t get. But there’s a lot I do get. An album you’ve played non-stop: (DN) Aubrie Sellers’ New City Blues. I listen to that a lot. (JF) Dawes for me. There are gems on every single one of their records. (DJ) Tom Petty’s Wildflowers. That album never gets old to me. An obscure or non-country song everyone should listen to right now: (DN) “Guacamole” by Texas Tornados. (JF) It’s food innuendo. It’s so great!

That’s not for the faint of heart, and one of the reasons many agents – including the ones featured here – have backgrounds in law. Contractual non-competes, services and morals clauses, and termination terms are all potential pitfalls for the unprepared. “Many of the people who are talented on air are not business people,” notes Goldstein Management Group’s Glenn Goldstein. “And certainly very few are adept at contracts. Sometimes they say, ‘Hey, I had it all reviewed by my local lawyer.’ Which is fine if the local lawyer understands broadcasting and how terms of art are actually used.” Compensation presents its own questions. “I concentrate on negotiation and getting people what they’re worth,” Goldstein continues. “And that’s very hard, but critical. What do you make? And what happens if you’re successful? What do you make then? How much of the salary is in the base? How much is in the bonuses? What about severance?” Great talents, Goldstein argues, are rarely great negotiators. “It’s very hard to go one on one with your boss – very hard to dig in,” he continues. “It’s a different skillset than being on the air or out at an event meeting listeners. And that’s why all kinds of artists – recording artists, actors and authors – are represented.” All For The Best: Anderson’s company takes a broad approach to talent representation, employing a variety of metrics to identify not just talents and career opportunities, but career paths. “We work first from a position of what the talent’s brand is and what the lanes of opportunity are moving forward,” he explains. “We do their deals, but generally have more of a managerial and brand- Page 9 management philosophy. We may be the only talent rep firm with a full-time analyst with a mathematics background and a full-time media strategist. We think of our talent as our partners and we think of the broadcast companies as our partners.” Comprehensive approaches are partially a result of the evolved radio landscape. “Talents are now expected to contribute more than just a great program,” Weiss says. “They’re expected to play a key creative role in coming up with sponsor-friendly ideas and endorsements adept at keeping advertisers coming back to their station. They›re expected to do more appearances, and use social media, podcasting and other platforms to promote their programs and the station in general.» Today›s best job opportunities are limited, in other words, and multi-dimensional talent with smart, goal-oriented plans have the advantage. Unfortunately the evolved landscape often means fewer representation opportunities for rookie and midlevel talent. Where Anderson once dealt with personalities of multiple skill levels, today he primarily works with top-tier, long-established talent. “I don’t think it’s a secret that the bench in this business is thin today,” he says. “They’re out there, but the reality is consolidation and the related pressure points have forced companies to optimize the talent they have. That’s not to say anyone’s giving up on the bench, but with Eric Weiss responsibilities piling up on programmers, many don’t have the luxury of spending the time it takes to develop new talent. That’s just the reality of where we are.” Push Back: The good news is managers today are more open to dealing with agents than in days past. “Enlightened management understands talent deserves to have representation if they’re far enough along in their career,” Goldstein says. “And they also understand that really good representation is a partnership. They know we’re partners with these guys and we all want these careers to flourish.” When management does push back, it usually has to do with operational priorities or cost. “If the employer has the leverage to say no, then the talent probably isn’t No. 1,” Goldstein observes. “If the talent is No. 1 and the employer says no, then the talent should really take stock of what it means to be on top.” Otherwise, managers are acutely aware that dealing directly with talent will save money. “They know they will do better against their own talent and get a cheaper deal than they will against a seasoned professional,” Goldstein continues. “It’s really that simple.” Sign Me Up: Who should consider representation? “Each individual situation is different,” Weiss offers. “When you have developed a strong story with revenue, ratings or social reach, it may be time for representation. If you are truly dominating a large or major market, if negotiating or reviewing contracts is not your strong suit or you don’t want to put yourself in an adversarial situation with your boss or company, it may be time to consider some form of representation.” “Not every talent is for us [or] needs an agent,” Anderson adds. “Either they’re not ready or it doesn’t make sense for our business, but we always try to be helpful and give people advice at the very least.” As for cost, “Managers or agents generally charge 10% of the talent’s pay,” Anderson says. “That’s pretty typical, whether you’re Brad Pitt or a major radio talent. Generally it’s a percentage of everything, but there are some things we choose not to commission, philosophically, that other agents may.” Despite radio’s changing landscape, Weiss sees a bright future for the industry’s best talent. “Radio personalities tend to be quicker on their feet and more agile than television personalities,” he says. “They’re the most creative group of people to represent. And as a rule, a great radio personality can have a much longer successful run than in other media.” Reach The Weiss Agency here, Workhouse Media here and Goldstein Management Group here. –Russ Penuell 2016 Countr y Aircheck — All r ights reser ved.
