Artist and repertoire companies come at a surplus nowadays. Anyone can start their agency, yet there has always been a shortage of groups that focus on helping underappreciated and underexposed talent that can make it big. Out of the clout, Talented Independent Music is rising from the ashes to become the go-to A&R agency for many breakthrough artists that will shock the next generation.
The company began in 2013 through the vision of CEO and founder of the company, Tim Smith. Following his father’s untimely passing, who was also named Tim, the music executive put all his heart and soul into what he loved. His drive in starting the music agency was to bring honor to his late father, who served as a constant source of inspiration for Tim Smith.
Talented Independent Music is a company that exists for every talented individual whose drive for music is undeniable. The company seeks to give direction and development advice to artists who are one nudge away from becoming hits. “I became the go to A&R executive of the streets,” shares Tim. “Soon, I was known for the help and guidance I was giving to many artists. I love doing what I do.”
Five years ago, Tim admits that he wasn’t pleased with the trajectory of his life. He recalls some of the darkest days of his life because of some wrong choices. Feeling trapped and hopeless, Tim roamed the streets, searching for something the entrepreneur already had in him the whole time. Upon realizing that he was the master of his fate, Tim took control of his life and started making better choices. In time, he found his purpose in starting Talented Independent Music.
Today, the music executive and entrepreneur has made a complete comeback. He’s now on the winning side, and nothing seems to be able to slow him down. Tim’s passion for what he does stems from the impact he has made in others’ lives. Tim’s music representation agency has helped many musicians find their voice and break barriers in their music career. “Knowing that artists under our guidance are doing well makes me happy,” adds Tim. “Other people’s happiness is my true love.”
Tim Smith would also later come up with #ImpossibleIsNothing Clothing. The brand of clothing is yet another extension of the entrepreneur’s desire to create a positive change in others. The clothing line under Talented Independent Music features shirts with positive quotes that have uplifted many people in the community. Recently, the company has also released a line of shirts and face masks to educate people on social distancing protocols.
By far, Tim’s greatest inspiration has been the love and support of his mother, who has always been there for him. He hopes to be able to create a life that she and his father would be proud of. Today, Tim Smith works hard to make Talented Independent Music one of the biggest music marketing and clothing brands.
Beyond all else, Tim loves people, most especially his A&R clients and customers. He hopes to be able to add value to as many people as he can through his greatest passions. To learn more about Tim Smith and Talented Independent Music, check out the company’s Facebook page and LinkedIn account.
