Who we are
Meet Double D Music Consulting
We are music business consultants which means we are professionals who provide expert advice to others in the same industry.
This website is strictly a guide to help or consult you on how to get to the next level in your career, it’s to help you understand what the business of music is about and how it all works while you are out there playing your music and honing your craft. We are not your “managers”, we are not your “lawyers”, we are not your “business partners”. We are not going to do the work of any of these professional team members. We are here to assist you in any questions or inquiries you may have for the process and to guide you or give you advice on anything that is outlined within this website.
Meet The Founder, Sandy Rizzo
Sandy Rizzo is the founder and CEO of Double D Music Consulting. She has substantial artist management experience in various levels of talent and genres throughout the music industry. Rizzo began her career in Boston. There, she accepted the opportunity to work with Aerosmith’s management company, Collins Management. Holding a variety of different positions within that company, she learned all the ins and outs of the industry.
“That was a great experience for me, as it really taught me the business from the top echelon of talent in the industry”, says Sandy.
A few years later, she relocated to the west coast and began a long career with famed rock manager Doc McGhee at McGhee Entertainment. Working in tandem with Doc and the best bands that era had to offer, (i.e. Scorpions, Bon Jovi, KISS, Skid Row, etc.) she was able to make a name for herself throughout the industry by honing her innate talents in artist management, promotion, touring and production.
A decade later, she found herself prepared to branch out and work with different management companies in various genres of music and different levels of talent. Within those management companies, she was able to advance her repertory of knowledge even further.
With a proven track record of more than 30 years of hard-core, fast paced experience in artist management, Sandy’s latest venture was to use her skills and experience to assist her clients of 18-Hour Management in obtaining the next level of their careers in the smartest and most productive way possible. As her role of founder and CEO of 18-Hour Management, she works directly with artists, their managers and their labels on all aspects of an artist’s career.
In these various roles throughout her career, Sandy has received many gold and platinum awards and in 2016 was inducted into RockGodz Hall of Fame.
