Vast Array of Live Music Experience
Graham Peacock is an artist manager with over 30 years of music business experience.
Starting out as professional musician, he played to audiences across Europe with festivals of up to 60,000 people before going on to build The Music Farm Studios in Sussex working with such artists as Ozzy Osbourne and Siouxsie & The Banshees.
As a recording engineer his work took him as far afield as Dominica (West Indies) and when later he changed to mixing live sound his work carried him around the world many times over, most notably mixing Moloko and Roisin Murphy throughout their live careers.
Seeking greater challenges after seeing the same cities so many times, Graham moved over to tour and production management, often mixing on the same tours.
In the early 1990’s Graham decided to enter the field of management and set up an office on Brighton sea front in the UK taking on management for Moloko in 1994. After 5 years hard work, in 1999 Moloko achieved a UK no 4 single with Sing It Back and in 2000 a UK number 2 with The Time Is Now. Both songs charted high around the world with their third album ‘Things to Make and Do’ achieving gold in the UK in just 10 days and hitting silver and gold in many countries.
With over 2 million sales and a hugely successful world tour behind them Moloko split in 2004 but Graham continued to work with singer Roisin Murphy as she embarked on her solo career.
In early 2009 after 6 albums and 15 successful years working together Roisin and Graham parted company to seek new adventures.
Graham went on to set up record labels and management for I Like Trains and Robert Vincent whilst also branching out into management consultancy for those artists who want a non traditional artist/management relationship.
The GPM team includes some of the finest professionals in today’s music and business communities with combined clients ranging from H.M Government to Coldplay and the Isle of Wight Festival to Big Chill Records.
