Rome wasn’t built in a day – and not just because we weren’t on that job. Having a plan is crucial to be able to determine your success in advance: having enough time to promote your cause can make all the difference between making headlines and hearing crickets. Fortunately, I have some experience in getting creative with strategic goals.. And I love it when a plan comes together.
While releasing an album or planning ahead might seem intimidating, I promise you it doesn’t have to be! During one of my coaching sessions we will look at your goals and how to achieve them. I’ve successfully supported artists with release planning, crowdfunding and marketing advice and would love to do the same for you.
Hi! I’m Arlette, a freelance jazz promoter and media director from The Netherlands.
Originally, I produced and programmed events in The Hague, where I lived most of my life. I’ve also toured with bands such as The Four Tops and The Temptations. In 2015, I decided to spend more time in The Netherlands than on the road and shifted my focus back to PR and marketing. Since then, I’ve worked with clients in The Netherlands, Belgium, France, Poland and Russia.
When I have time, I enjoy having beers with unsuspecting jazz musicians and check out shows at my favorite local jazz bar, Dizzy in Rotterdam.
Some Humble pie; I was honored to win a Netherlands Music Industry Award in January 2020, awarded at Eurosonic Noorderslag. In 2021 I joined the 7 Virtual Jazz Club competition as a juror. I was a jazz juror for the first time in 2019, at Jazz Across Borders in Saint-Petersburg, Russia, and enjoyed it very much. I’ve also had the pleasure of being invited as a speaker at the Why DIY Music Podcast and by Gail Boyd at Alternative Venues for Jazz.
