Sam Vance-Law's first song Prettyboy has over 100.000 on Spotify after just a few weeks. Nice. The first of a lot of brilliant songs of a debut record! Tom Robinson @ BBC6 music: ""Just on a personal note, I grew up as a teenager in the 60s and I had a big crisis because I fell in love with another boy at school and in those days that was just completely unacceptable. There was no role model to tell you you could have a happy life out there and, as a music fan, there was no music whatsoever that kind of reflected the way I felt about the world and about other people. And it’s just so lovely to hear young artists today who are just able to express themselves whatever their feelings are and whoever they are and whoever you happen to be as a music fan, you can find some variant of music that will reflect the way you see the world.”

KARAKTER is an artist management company based in London and Berlin. Its philosophy is to work honestly and openly with our artists. We have a holistic approach to management, working with artists and producers with strong individual characters and finding the right path to represent them in the most appropriate way – whether that should be on a consultancy basis or full management basis.
As team-players, Karakter Worldwide also expects our artists and business partners to be team-players too. Good working relationships are a crucial foundation for a successful venture. Great music alone is not enough, because so many other things influence whether a career will be successful or not. We take a long-term view with our clients, building relationships and effective strategies to maximize our artists’ potential for a long and healthy career.
Over the last ten years, Karakter artists have released many successful albums; were nominated for, or won, awards (BBC Folk Awards, Grammy, Echo, Choice Music Prize, Meteor Awards, Amadeus Awards among others); their music was chosen for movies, television series and advertising campaigns; they’ve collaborated with respected film directors; and played thousands of live shows and festivals worldwide.
Karakter was founded by Peter Putz, Liz Riches and Maximilian Schenkel. Each of us had previously spent considerable time working in various areas of the entertainment industry, including publishing, labels, music television, film, publicity, lecturing about the music business at European and US universities and colleges, live booking and design. In 2005 we brought our collective skills together to create a company that would be in line with our own philosophies and principles. In a time where this industry concentrates more and more on quantity and conveyor-belt short term success, we believe in focusing on the quality of our artists and of our own work. In the meantime, the Karakter team around the three founders has grown with great like-minded people who share the same principles and work ethos.
Besides Karakter artist management, in 2009 the sister company Karakter Live was founded together with Timo Kumpf. Karakter Live is a booking agency and local promoter, based in the south-west of Germany, and host of the Maifeld Derby Festival and local shows, which has brought international acts including ALT J, St Vincent, The National, Future Islands, Calexico, Dream Theatore, Roisin Murphy and many more to the region.
In 2012 Karakter founded LYA (Love Your Artist), a ticket and merchandise platform for artists, local promoters and festivals, which focuses on the “one marketplace” strategy and a fair and transparent pricing model.
Karakter additionally consults business partners in the background and holds a number of strategic partnerships with different labels, publishers, distributors and live promoters.
