  Tom Cater Domino Publishing My music career started in 2008 by running club nights in Brighton and booking bands that were local or passing through the city. In 2009 I moved to London to study and in my second year started my first internship at a label called Back Yard Recordings. Whilst at Back Yard, I was running a club night called Wasted Youth in Kilburn where I discovered a band called Films. I had a go at managing the band on the little experience I had but whilst momentum and interest built, we separated and the band went on to become Alt-J. In my final year of studying I met a manager called Mikey Stirton (whom I still work with today) and started assisting him on day-to-day management activities for his artists. This was ideal for me since I could be flexible with the hours as everything was done on email. After graduating I got my first paid job at R&S Records as a talent scout. Whilst there I began managing bands myself, one of which were a band called Vondelpark who ended up releasing their album on the label. In late 2012 I joined Perfect Songs Publishing as an A&R where I quickly learnt the role of a creative publisher; putting writers in session, finding tracks, pitching songs and more. Whilst here I started managing an artist called Only Real who I done my first major label deal with by signing him to Virgin EMI in 2013. In January 2014 I joined Domino Publishing where I’m still based and have been actively signing and developing talent since. Recent signings include, PlanningToRock, Peh Per Ghost, Seven Davis Jr and Archie Pelago.
