I’m Immy and I’m a merchandise manager and tour manager assistant for a variety of bands and artists. I love all things live music, dogs and brownies and am quite partial to a good gin and tonic every now and then (more like every night!)
Merchandise manager/ TM assistant
Who have I worked with
Rich Brian, BABYMETAL, Harry Styles, SUM 41, Gabrielle Aplin, Lolo Zouiä, BTS, Tori Kelly
Changes everyday but all time I would have to say Beyoncé and also, embarrassingly so, Michael Bublé! (A not-so guilty pleasure!)
Sempiternal by Bring Me The Horizon
It really depends on the mood I’m in. Irresistible by Beyoncé has some great tour memories attached to it. Currently it is Raspberry Beret by Prince.
What brought you into the music industry?
A love and passion for live music like nothing else in my life, and I felt working in live music, being apart of the team that delivers shows to thousands of people would be a hugely valuable career that I felt had/has purpose.
How is your life affected by COVID-19?
I lost all of my work for the year and foreseeable future. I was actually in the middle of a tour and about to go to Europe when lockdown hit and so had to stop halfway through.I also finished university this year and it’s looking unlikely I’ll have a graduation ceremony
Have I benefited from a COVID relief fund?
How do you feel in general?
It has been nice to be at home and take some much needed downtime, but at the same time I feel hugely uncertain for my future and as a 22 year old it’s scary to think that all of the work I’ve put in since 16 and the degree I’ve just completed has been for nothing. I try to keep a positive outlook but as time goes on that seems to be becoming a lot more difficult.
A short funny/memorable/touching story on the job.
A long night on the bus of drinking, single purple rain far too many times, and eventually the night ending in bus Wrestlemania! Also giving out free tickets to a secret Harry Styles show and seeing the reaction on the fans faces. Very heartwarming.
