Introducing: Pat Carr (Remote Control Agency)

Pat Carr // CEO & Founder // Remote Control Agency

Pat has worked in the highly competitive Music industry for over 30 years, while award-winning as a marketing specialist, she has also run 3 successful independent companies, including the much-loved Infectious Music (twice!). She has worked on artists as diverse as the Mercury Prize winning alt-J, DMA’s, Maya Jane Coles, Blondie, Janet Jackson, Ry X, Ash, Blink 182, Rick Astley and both Perfecto and Ram Records and in her last role built the successful marketing and digital team at BMG UK. In 2001 she set up the first ever UK label management and artist services consultancy and after an 8-year hiatus at Infectious and BMG set up Remote Control 2.0 which she runs today. With an inevitably varied and lively roster she still loves the industry today.

Pat will be joining Ben Wynter (PRS Foundation), Rupert Vereker (DIY) and more TBC on our Road To Europe…and beyond panel. This panel discusses the many entry points and strategies that artists, managers and entrepreneurs can adopt when looking to break into Europe. How to access new markets, getting on showcase bills at European festivals and conferences, presenting yourself to prospective new audiences and maintaining a fanbase in those new territories. Learn from those who’ve been there, experienced it and how the landscape has changed.
