The entertainment scene can be pretty complex and challenging to navigate, especially for beginners. As such, finding a reliable and expert management company is important as it can help make the experience much easier and even effortless. When it comes to having unrivaled knowledge in the industry, the name Skylar Dawn stands out.
Skylar Dawn is the founder and CEO of Tiger Lab Studios, a production studio rental company in Los Angeles, California. Through the venture, anyone from artists, music labels, movie production companies, and creative brands can rent studio time to shoot their movies, music videos, and other projects.
Because of her relentless drive and passion, she has massively scaled the success of Tiger Lab. Now, a decade after its inception, the venture is recognized as one of the most respected studios in LA. As a testament to its influence, the enterprise has a diverse clientele, including giant brands and global corporations such as JCPenny, WOW (Women Of Wrestling), L’oreal, Sony Music, Samsung, Atlantic Records, Universal Music Group, The Discovery Channel, FXNetworks, and many more.
This time, the industry authority officially entered the music scene by creating the artist management company Dark Lab Entertainment. Becoming part of the business has always been a goal for Skylar; after all, she has always been passionate about music.
Candidly sharing what pushed her to pursue the project, Skylar disclosed hearing accounts from several frustrated artists who are having trouble with their management agencies. The entrepreneur revealed, “While I was in the studio a lot, I was talking to artists, and they were telling me about how they were getting a lot of bad management deals, how a lot of managers are making them sign contracts that could’ve put the artists in a bad predicament financially but it would’ve been beneficial for the management.”
“Making artists do shows that they really didn’t want to do and signing them on to the shows without them knowing, but they were forced to do it since their management signed them on. I mean, the stories can go on from what I have heard. Managers forget that they should help the artist, and they are working for the artist that is signed with them, not the artist working for the managers,” she insightfully concluded.
After hearing these testimonies, the inspiring woman quickly went to work and thus, created Dark Lab Entertainment. Currently, the up-and-coming brand has already signed on its first talent, 3AMparadise, a gifted artist, producer, and songwriter who has worked with many other musicians, including Kirko Bangz, Rockie Fresh, Derrick Milano, Johan Lenox, Davo, Andre Merrit, O’Ryan, ASAP Tyy, Aaron Reid, Levi Bent-Lee, and Devin Cruise.
Her new venture also allowed Skylar to work with other people in the music scene, including Andrew Balogh, the founder and CEO of the artist development and multimedia publicity entity, Balogh Management. Andrew is a producer and composer with two multi-platinum record certifications. His songs are featured on the movies Dirty Grandpa, The Outcasts, and Bad Boys for Life.
” I actually met Andrew many years ago in my studio Tiger Lab during a music video shoot for an artist he is working with. When I told him I started my own management company he was actually excited for me and told me if I needed help with anything to let him know,” Skylar shared. “I reached out to him one day. I believe about some possible media and publicity work.”
The enterprise is seeing rapid growth, with Skylar Dawn frequently meeting with numerous artists eager to sign up with the management company. She is also looking for intuitive and trustworthy managers who share her vision of providing top-quality management services.
Moving forward, the entrepreneur intends to bring the venture to the top of the music scene and further expand its horizons. As such, she is studying to become an entertainment attorney. As the determined woman optimistically shared, “My goal is for Dark Lab to grow to where not only music artists are signed with Dark Lab. Where all creatives who need management services can be signed to Dark Lab and also have it grow into an Entertainment Law Firm once I pass my bar.”
