About Us

LIBBY ABRAHAMS
Director

Having worked for over 20 years in some of the most prestigious global Artist agencies, it was a natural step to branch out on my own in order to deliver my vision of a modern, flexible and innovative Artist management Agency. Over the last three years, and with the support of my amazing artists and team we are about to embark on our third season. I am extremely proud of what we have achieved so far and I am hugely excited about the challenges ahead.

ALAN COATES

I haven’t looked back since joining Keynote: the years of experience in the industry that Libby and I share, combined with our wish to be able to work as closely as possible with our artists and partners on a wonderfully diverse array of projects – provides a truly creative environment, that inspires us to give of our best. And to have fun doing so at the same time!

CLAUDIA CLARKSON
Manager

These last two and a half years I have had a wonderful time working as a freelancer on a wide range of projects in the music industry. It has been a most enjoyable period in my professional life and for many months I never envisaged returning to a fixed position working in an agency. However, after I was approached by Alan and Libby I realised that I couldn’t miss out on the opportunity to join Keynote Management, an agency that is modern, adventurous, exciting and flexible, standing for everything I believe in the business and offer a unique style of forward thinking. I hope to help build on their current relationships as well as developing new interesting and diverse projects. I’m looking forward to the year ahead and everything we as a team can achieve for Keynote.

After graduating from the Royal College of Music as a trombonist, I began working within the promotions department at Schott Music. In 2016 I joined Keynote, giving me the opportunity to work on fantastic projects with some of the most amazing artists, and I am incredibly grateful to be continuing my career alongside such a dedicated team.

DANIEL RAINEY
Assistant Artist Manager

After studying at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and Royal Academy of Music, I spent several years as a freelance violinist and teacher before joining Keynote in 2017. Working with a list of exceptional, enterprising artists alongside a team of people with such a wealth of knowledge and experience is incredibly inspiring and a real privilege.

With nearly 10 years’ experience of working with some of the most prestigious artists internationally, I’m really excited to have joined Keynote for a fresh approach to Artist Management. It is great to be back working with Libby and the team and I’m really looking forward to immersing myself into a Boutique agency and delivering a bespoke service for our clients.
