Complete Control: Pat Carr relaunches consultancy to boost indies

Pat Carr

Former BMG executive Pat Carr has rebooted her pioneering Remote Control agency for 2018.

Carr – who was SVP of marketing at the resurgent BMG until last year and previously also worked with Korda Marshall at Infectious – ran Remote Control as a label management and marketing consultancy.

The company has lain dormant for seven years, but has now been revived to help independent companies in the streaming age, with initial clients including the likes of Charlie Andrew’s Square Leg Records, Thomas Haimovici’s Au Contraire Music Management and booking agency Primary Talent International.

“I’ve watched a lot of other people take the idea of Remote Control and run with it,” said Carr, speaking exclusively in the new issue of Music Week. “There were no label or project marketing consultancies when I started, but the industry is back to having more spaces for that kind of thing again.”

Carr – who will work in tandem with other specialist consultants and run projects internationally – said she hoped that Remote Control will become “a respected go-to place for passionate advice, help and expertise in all areas of the market”.
