Who We Are

Talent Management, Consulting & Concert Promotion focused on artist development for hip-hop/R&B artists & songwriters. Passion-driven and holistically managed.

Strange Oasis Entertainment (SOE) was founded in October 2015 by a group of entrepreneurs who saw a need for structure in their local scene. We know that writing and recording music is a time-intensive process in itself, and many developing artists leave branding and business strategy by the wayside at a crucial stage in their career. The lines between the members of an artist’s team are blurring, and we know that finding the right representation for your art is difficult. Our goal is to offer developing artists a modern, full-service approach to developing your career as an independent artist.

Strange Oasis Entertainment offers a variety of services to developing artists. This can range from full-service artist management to simply meeting up for a consulting session about how to brand yourself online. We are also always looking for up and coming talent for our next show. Due to the intimate nature of the relationships we establish with our clients, space on our management roster is limited.

A partial list of services includes:

  • Artist Management
  • Tour Management
  • Booking & Promoting Tours & One-Offs for Local, Regional & National Acts
  • Social Media Development
  • Content Production
  • PR & Press Campaigns

We know there’s a lot more that goes into artist development than what appears on this list. Our team has experience in a variety of fields and can work out individualized plans on a case-by-case basis. Get in touch to learn more!
