GoSet Music is a management driven independent music label and publishing house. Established by Sydney artist manager, Lorda Omeissah in response to this DIY age in music, GoSet Music aims to provide a comprehensive service to artists from the primary A&R function of nurturing and developing talent in writing and recording to managing and facilitating long-term careers for its artists and writers.
GoSet proudly resurrects the name from the Melbourne-based music magazine of the 70s that saw many industry names such as Molly Meldrum get their start in the music business. GoSet aims to provide the strategic support for artists to make their mark in a global music environment using all resources available in the modern music and media market.
To this end, Goset has affiliated with IODA out of San Francisco as its primary partner for worldwide digital distribution. IODA has now merged with The Orchard to provide the muscle that independents need in the digital market and is the only digital distributor to achieve the same platforms as the majors.
Locally, GoSet works with independent distribution giant MGM and Sebastian Chase. Negotiations for overseas release partners are conducted based on the interest levels in each individual artist.
GoSet has the flexibility to tailor deals to the individual situation of each act. It can develop and sign artists direct, joint venture with existing artists and labels to provide management on both an artist and label level as well as license independent artists to a structure that will leave their options free to maximise their potential for release in territories outside Australia. Crucially, GoSet endeavours to return copyright control to the Artist while providing a management and label platform suited to today’s music market. Hence it is particularly beneficial to artists with a strong desire for self sufficiency and independence.
In addition, GoSet offers an online shopfront for physical distribution of product through the GoSet Store on this site – an option available to selected artists, not necessarily signed to GoSet Music or Management. GoSet Online is registered as a High Volume site and sales are eligible for weekly ARIA chart survey.
GoSet also offers a music management consultancy service at reasonable rates with no strings attached.
GoSet seeks to establish working relationships with labels, distributors, publishers, music managers, booking agents, television and film music supervisors, retailers and publicity and promotion entities interested in any of the artists represented by GoSet.
Joining its principal, Lorda Omeissah, is Doug Nixon as head of Marketing and New Business Development. Doug comes to GoSet with 7 years’ experience working at EMI in a variety of positions including marketing, retail relations, new business development and label management. Doug joins Lorda in the day-to-day management, A&R and marketing of artists and projects and has been overseeing the development and release of Robyn Loau’s sophomore album Only Human, LA’I’s debut ep Daylight Breaks and manages songbird Dannielle Gaha Deandrea.
