Most likely to be heard ranting about how she refuses to work with w***kers, Julia
has held on to a ridiculous dream of creating a corner of the music industry that
works differently. In her world, people pool resources, utilise one another’s strengths
and have integrity. One day in her seemingly endless battle to achieve this utopian
fantasy, she realised that she hadn’t quite reached paradise but she had inadvertently
created her own job.
Her small team at Peculiar Management now works full time developing the careers
of the artists they work with. Their current roster includes No.1 selling classical
act Mediaeval Baebes, prog rock innovators Knifeworld, 15 piece gypsy punk orchestra
The Destroyers and some talented singer songwriters including Melpomeni , The Murder
Barn and ex Flesh For Lulu frontman Nick Marsh.
Julia’s notable prior work includes music co-ordination on 3 Royal Variety Performances
and experience on many light entertainment TV productions. Subsequent work has included
tour concept and management for London based commercial radio station Kiss 100, set
up and event management of Hinterland Festival in Glasgow - a two day musical extravaganza
involving 15 venues and 120 bands and event management of The Camden Crawl, a similar
music event attracting 15,000 people.
Having worked in radio, television, live events, parties, music booking and fixing,
corporate entertainment, PR, commercial launches and artist management her varied
experience has been invaluable in today’s ever changing entertainment industry. With
in-house PR, design and label management, Julia and her small team have an advantageous
set of skills which are perfectly suited to getting new projects off the ground.
“There is no task too formidable, or any journey too daunting, that Julia Hannan,
the producer and ultimate facilitator of the epic dreamscape that is “Temptation”
Her tireless determination and righteous dedication defines her as a unique alchemist
and conduit of the eclectic spectrum of talent that surrounds her.
Where would artists be without a vehicle of such diligent and practical means to
unravel the mystery of self promotion?
A word of warning, Should you choose to engage with this tigress in the field of
battle, be prepared for a fearsome fight, as she will never back down, and you will
die a thousand deaths before her honour is compromised…” - Katharine Blake, Mediaeval
