Green Room Music Source operates on the simple philosophy behind our mantra, ‘No Band is an Island.’ We understand that our artists aren’t simply looking for a company to set up shows for them, create a logo, or help create planning ; they’re looking for a partner to work with them and help them advance their careers and reach their full potential.
What we don’t do
Artists are as unique as their music, and cookie cutter advice and planning are ineffective and show little passion. It does no good to partner with artists only to try and force their career into an existing model. We use our experience and past successes to forge ahead into new territory and discover new opportunities. In an industry that changes rapidly, standing still is moving backwards, and past successes don't necessarily equate to future ones.
What we do
Green Room Music Source works with artists on a very selective basis. It’s less about where an artist is at in his career, and more about if our mutual ideas and goals for a project make a good fit that will become a lasting and fruitful relationship.
We take this same approach when working with venues, labels, publishers, and any other company or client we partner with. We believe that artists, and all those who benefit from their art should work together in ways that are mutually beneficial and encourage continued growth and success for our industry and our art.
We work in the areas of booking and touring, branding and marketing strategies, design services, management and consulting. We are rapidly expanding the scope of our business and constantly looking to innovate and bring our experience to more facets of the industry.
Green Room Music Source is based in Minneapolis and owned and operated by Craig Grossman and David Priebe. Founded in 2006 by Grossman and Aubry Walch in the wake of their booking agency Vamp Music Source, the two quickly established a reputation for booking successful national tours with up and coming artist including Trampled by Turtles, Ezra Furmen, The Ike Reilly Assassination and Charlie Parr. In 2009, Priebe joined the business as an agent, later becoming a partner as the firm branched out into artist management. Green Room Music Source has become a staple in the Minneapolis music scene as well as every major music market across the country making annual showcasing appearances at SXSW, CMJ Music Marathon, FAI, and Americana Fest as well as many other festivals and events. Our reputation still speaks for itself, and we pride ourselves on our strong relationships both with our artists and our venue partners.
