Olivia Management, an artist management and music consulting company, was founded in Nashville in 2012 by Erin O. Anderson. Read more about her path to founding Olivia Management here


Since founding Olivia Management, Erin has grown the company to three full time staff, four management clients, and a consulting business that is helping 10-15 clients at any given time. She led her clients The Secret Sisters to a Grammy nomination for Best Folk Album in 2018.   

Before starting Olivia Management, Erin worked as a product manager in Seattle at Amazon Music. Erin received her MBA from Vanderbilt's Owen Graduate School of Management with a concentration in entrepreneurship and strategy. She has consulted with Sony Music Entertainment, the Americana Music Association, Nashville Chamber of Commerce, Kind of Blue Music, Keb' Mo', GoodMusicAllDay.com, Rachel Potter (X Factor), ATL Collective, the Nashville Entrepreneur Center, and worked at Universal Music Group Nashville which consisted of imprints Lost Highway Records, MCA Records, and Mercury Records.

In addition to music consulting and artist career management, Anderson teaches as an adjunct professor at Belmont University in Music Business and Entrepreneurship. Her classes cover the topics of starting businesses, interning in the music industry, refining resumes and cover letters, and serving the community through entrepreneurship.

Erin was named a finalist in the Nashville Emerging Leader Awards in 2016 and 2018. She serves as the staff director at Owen Graduate School of Management's Accelerator Summer Business Institute, volunteers to teach entrepreneurship to inmates through the BEST program, served as the music coordinator for TEDx Nashville for three years and was one of the founding members of the Nashville Entrepreneur Center's Advance Nashville initiative in digital music.


Maggie is a manager at Olivia Management, working with Lydia Luce, as well as handling marketing and day to day for The Secret Sisters, Hush Kids, Matthew Perryman Jones, and Jill Andrews.  Arriving in Nashville in 2012 as a new Belmont University student, Maggie was thrilled to be surrounded by people who were as interested in music and community as she was. Her internships with Kaleidoscope Media, War Memorial Auditorium, Lightning 100 and the Nashville Entrepreneur Center helped her realize that what she loved most was making meaningful connections and helping other creatives succeed. Artist management seemed like the perfect avenue to satisfy both of those passions, and Maggie is happy to have landed at Olivia Management in 2016. Since joining the team, Maggie has been promoted twice, from assistant to day to day, and now manager.
