Eddie Neam has experience across all parts of the music industry, leading him to being a full-time entrepreneur in the space today. With all of the knowledge he has, he’s mainly focusing on helping established and independent artists make a name for themselves and obtain charting certification for their records, but having worked as an executive music producer, DJ, and expert tour manager, there’s so much he can offer to artists and record labels alike.
Getting into the music industry started with Eddie Neam being a professional DJ on the iHeart Radio airwaves. This led to him interning with major record labels and getting into producing behind the scenes with major and independent artists. “It took me 7 years to build my brand,” Neam says. “I started with nothing and what got me to where I’m at now was a handshake and a smile.”
“A music Executive from Def Jam Recordings once told me that teamwork makes the dream work,” Neam says. “I couldn’t agree more with him. I love my network of friends and I wouldn’t be here without them.” Those several long-lasting connections are things that Neam . expects to continue to use to help him push new artists that he’s working with forward, doing the same things for them that others did for him when he was just starting out in the industry.
Today, Neam offers services such as marketing campaigns for independent artists and producers. “I want to help them push their music projects out professionally while they’re on an independent level,” he says. Neam also does tour management for artists and producers that need help building their brand from scratch.
Eddie Neam has successfully obtained gold and multi-platinum certification for his marketing and promotions of major records. Among these hit records are “Everyday We Lit” by YFN Lucci featuring PnB Rock, which was certified gold after peaking at #12 on the Billboard hip-hop charts and “Taste” by Tyga featuring Offset, which peaked at number nine on the Billboard Hot 100 in August of 2018. This includes working with Def Jam Recordings to help push records for Kanye West. Neam . has also successfully pushed independent records into mediabase charts.
Neam feels he’s found his passion in the music industry and he credits that passion as the reason for his current success and drive to achieve more. “Success to me is following your sole purpose in life,” he says. “Knowing who you are in this world and what you can do to create positive energy. When you feel that you are using all the tools that the universe provides and you are using it for the greater cause to bring peace to this world, then I think you’re successful.”
The music industry has a lot of moving parts and Neam prides himself in being able to help artists and producers navigate the complexities of the business. It’s not just getting in a booth and recording a song that gets you a hit, even in an age where creation is easier than ever before. You can get a song trending on TikTok or use it in a popular tweet, but it’s people like Eddie Neam who will help get it on the Billboard charts and playing over radio airwaves, which still control a lot of the charting landscape of the modern music era.
Eddie Neam’s drive for success and creative vision got him to where he is today. He plans on using those same skills to get himself to his future in the business. Neam . has seen what those abilities can do for you and music and he’s ready to show artists what can be possible with that kind of work ethic. He is excited to see what comes along in his professional future, as the future of the music industry continues to change.
