About Us

Established in Switzerland in 1998 by industry veteran Rachel Strassberger, now located in the throbbing heart and heat of Barcelona and with an Amsterdam-based branch office, Strassberger is a bespoke 360º music management company that works with the world’s biggest artists, labels and event companies to create unique, tailored campaigns. Over the past 19 years our team has worked with clients from all aspects of the international music industry, from artists, brands, event promoters and management teams to record labels and global publishing houses. Speaking four languages, we liaise daily with the biggest movers and shakers, putting our clients first and foremost in the most important conversations, making sure every project we support on their behalf is being worked at full capacity by all partners and associates. Ultimately, we take on the hard work, leaving you free to grow creatively, safe in the knowledge that you’re supported by a team that understands exactly what it takes to get you to the next level.

Consultancy

Starting off in the music industry can seem like a maze at the best of times. With so many different avenues, how do you know which ones are worth your time and which ones to leave? Furthermore, even if you do know who you want to speak to, how do you get yourself heard when there’s so much competition? At Strassberger, we take on a select number of clients each year, navigating them through the process and lending them both our expertise and our huge connections throughout the industry. We speak to labels, get their music on the listening table, negotiate deals, sign remix contracts, arrange media and promotional campaigns, discuss possibilities with global booking agents, create opportunities with key radio stations and influential streaming platforms, and put them as artists and brands forefront in the minds of the people who matter the most.
