Maimed & Tamed began in 2010 as a place where three brothers could write about the music they loved. Hundreds of blog posts, dirty bars, seedy basements, and long festival nights later, Maimed & Tamed has morphed into what we like to call a music consultancy. Maimed & Tamed works with brands, artists, companies, events, and venues to create customized programs designed to fit any music related needs. Whether short or long-term projects, start-ups or major companies, we will work with your budget to tailor a program that aligns with your goals and delivers maximum return on investment.
Need music to energize your marketing campaigns, but don’t know where to start? That’s where Maimed & Tamed comes in. Through our experience working with artists, labels, festivals, venues, and agencies, we have the network and the knowledge to create customized programs that fit with your brand and your budget.
Music Supervision and Curation
Whether you’re making a short film, full-length movie, online advertisement, or television commercial, Maimed & Tamed can help you find the perfect soundtrack for your project. M&T will handle the negotiations for licensing fees with publishers and execute the master use and synch agreements so that you don’t have to worry about the placement and clearance process. M&T will also work with your team to curate playlists that can be used in-store or online.
The Maimed & Tamed team has experience booking and promoting independent shows since early 2010. M&T will help book live music for your venue, party, summer concert series, coffee shop, or any event that would benefit from live music. M&T works with artists of all levels and genres to facilitate your band booking needs.
Maimed & Tamed was founded as a Boston-based indie music blog, covering local and national music news. Since then M&T has re-located to Brooklyn, but still spreads its focus across the Boston and NYC music scenes. Over the years M&T has interviewed artists such as Deer Tick, Alabama Shakes, Dawes, and Trampled By Turtles in addition to covering festivals like Bonnaroo, SXSW, Newport Folk Festival, Summerfest, and many more.
We provide traditional day-to-day management services as well as ad hoc consulting for independent artists. We won’t work with music we don’t love or haven’t seen live before, so send us your best stuff and let us know when you’re playing next.
Event Production/Tour Management
Our team will ensure that your next event is a success by managing audio production, stage and lighting design, stage management, and any video needs. Maimed & Tamed will coordinate associated ticketing, content creation, security, licensing, permitting, and other related logistics for your event. M&T also offers tour management solutions including pre-production, coordinating all rentals and insurance, booking travel and accommodations, and managing daily run-of-show for the entirety of your tour.
