🎙: Being an Artist Manager for Bands | Guest: Tash & Ina from Hoof Mgmt 🍑 Ep 2

4 min readFeb 24, 2020



This week, in Episode 2 we are chatting about Artist Management with Tash Cutts and Ina Tatarko. They are two of three bodacious babes that set up their own management company called Hoof Mgmt. (what a name) alongside Sinead Mills who unfortunately could not make it for dinner and chat.

Finally, I made finger food BAO BUNS — no more cutlery sounds on the podcast! Plus, we eat vegan tonight!


This week I had 2 of the 3 ladies that make up Hoof Mgmt.
TASH — also manages a band called Squid and recently Lazarus Kane.
INA — also manages Squid and additionally manages a saxophone player and producer called Laura Misch (who I love). Ina has also just started working with singer and pianist called Martha Skye Murphy. Ina’s DAY JOB (that’s right she manages 3 bands and has a day job, this is an inspirational lady here) is as an artist manager for End Of The Road (looks after Ezra Furman).
