Firebrand Music is a booking and management agency set up originally by Vicky Whitlock in 2007 to handle bookings and touring for Phil Beer and The Phil Beer Band. Following the sale of their events company, Vicky was joined in 2012 by long standing friend and business partner Amanda Howland.
This allowed the business to take on Steve Knightley’s solo tours (starting with the management of over 750 enquiries for the highly successful ‘Grow Your Own Gig Tour’), followed shortly by Sykes Preston (the highly acclaimed duo featuring Miranda Sykes of Show of Hands) in 2013.
In 2014 we were delighted to be asked to take over the Show of Hands management role and record label, followed shortly by an approach from the Radio 2 Award winning duo Edgelarks.
In 2019 we started UK tour & festival bookings for Folk Americana 4-piece Track Dogs and in 2020 Banter joined us for ceilidh & concert bookings. New for 2021 is a fantastic collaboration between Miranda Sykes and Hannah Martin, while Phil Henry has embarked on several successful solo tours.
We think that this is enough to keep us out of mischief for the foreseeable future.
We are proud to be able to work with promoters and venues from 100 seats to 1000 with the same level of friendly professionalism which has always characterised our working relationship. Our absolute priority is our artists and the people whose hard work and dedication in venues all over the country allows live music to thrive.
