Music Business Consulting

Balancing both artistic and business responsibilities can be a daunting task, especially if you're new to the industry. But don't worry, you don't have to go at it alone. I'm here to help you with whatever you need, whether it's fresh motivation, new skills, or guidance on a specific topic. I have clients who meet with me regularly to check in on their projects and others who come to me for specific skills or advice. No matter your goals, I believe in the power of asking for help. If I don't have the answer, we'll work together to find it. 


Some of the areas we can discuss include brand building, long-term planning, collaboration opportunities, finding an agent, merchandising, album release strategies, growing your fan base, tour preparation, organization, time management, setting up an LLC, EPK development, bio writing, production quality, playlisting, sync licensing, and setting up royalty collection.

In addition to consultations, I also create projects that bring together artists, industry professionals, brands, and nonprofits. In 2023, I'm curating and producing events such as Ladies Night to support Girls Rock Grand Rapids, Decades of Love Show at Midtown GR, I Love Rock and Roll Video Release for IWD, CTC Writer’s Round at The Stray, East x West Jam Session at Grand Rapids Center for Community Transformation, Women of Rock Show at Pyramid Scheme, and two networking events. Past curated projects include The Chain Video, RESPECT Video, Crooked Tree Creative Artist Showcase at Third Coast Recording Co., Michigan's Birthday Celebration at Founders, and Spread the Music Festival 2020 & 2021 through Michigan Music Alliance.

All consultations require a 50% non-refundable deposit to secure the booking. Don't hesitate to reach out and let's work together to bring your artistic vision to life!

"We engaged Crooked Tree in a pinch based on a recommendation. Best recommendation! Elle is so well organized and connected that we went from chaos to cool in minutes. She stuck with us and final product was perfect. If you are looking for an agent, Elle and her team are the best! We think the world of her and so will you." - Brooke

"Elle is very thorough and thoughtful when working with artists. This is true for her photography, her booking agency, her artist development consulting, and the B-Side sessions. Very professional yet not at all intimidating. I highly recommend working with Crooked Tree and attending some B-Side sessions." - Sandra

"The B-Side sessions Elle and the good folks at Crooked Tree have been putting on have been INCREDIBLE. Truly an invaluable resource to the Michigan music community and scene. Thank you guys so much for all the good works you're doing!!" - Ted

"Elle is SOLID. Trust in her experience and be guided by one of the best!" - Paul
