Established in 2000 in Toronto, Six Shooter Records is a full service music company with a diverse roster that includes artists in the genres of Americana, country, indie rock, and avant-garde. In addition to being a label and a publisher, the company also provides artist and business management services, and produces two festivals in Canada called the Interstellar Rodeo. We have been distributed in America since 2006, and added full time staff representation in March 2015. We currently have a full time staff base of ten people working out of Toronto, Winnipeg, and Austin; and are looking for a Nashville representative to work out of our office within the Thirty Tigers building on Merritt St.
The broadly defined job description is as follows:
- Provide strategic support for all aspects of our business — including marketing, touring, and A&R — and assist with the execution of those strategies.
- Augment the work carried out by promotional staff and contractors in the areas of press/publicity, radio promotion, digital marketing, and streaming strategies; and on certain projects, take the lead.
- Facilitate co-writing sessions for Six Shooter artists traveling to Nashville, as well as oversee the making of demos and shopping of songs.
- Represent Six Shooter locally (and at times, nationally) by engaging with the music community at local events and also developing one-on-one rapport with target companies and individuals.
As the face of Six Shooter in Nashville, we are looking for someone who fits the corporate culture of Six Shooter: smart, personable, creative, dedicated, tenacious, inspired, and good humoured. Because this position flies solo much of the time, we need a motivated, self-directed, initiative taker who is not afraid to pick up the phone. Most of all, we are looking for a champion for our company and our artists.
The position is full time contract, with a retainer of $2500-$3300/month, plus expenses.
