Anna Stephens

Founder & Publicist

I've lived in some amazing cities including Paris, Oxford and Venice, working across art galleries. I moved to the music-loving city of Manchester, UK to pursue songwriting. I've met some incredible people along the way, in all areas of the music industry; from labels to management and promotion. Back in my hometown in the North-East of England I set up Decent, working with local talent to start with. Now we work with artists all over the world!

Senior Artist Liaison Executive

Since I can remember, music has been a huge passion of mine. I started taking singing at the age of 15. I studied it at GCSE, achieved a Level 3 Extended Diploma in Music Industry at College, and finally moved to London to pursue my dream to go to University and gained a BA First-Class Honours  Degree in Music Industry Practice at ACM (The Academy for Contemporary Music). I gig regularly as a solo artist, playing my acoustic guitar and perform lead vocals for several bands. Music runs through my blood. Being a part of Decent allows me to help Artists achieve their dreams.

Head of Artist Liaison

My background is the B2B marketing space delivering campaigns for major international brands. I was always involved in Music working with artists in a management capacity as well as curating festival stages and helping bands to secure slots at major festivals in the UK. After 15 years in the B2B space I moved full time into Music PR and have worked across many verticals working with Independent and major artists helping to grow their audiences.  A highlight was managing an artist and securing a record deal which then led to UK support slots for the legendary UK band ' The Libertines'.

Deputy Head of Artist Liaison

My love for music started within production and audio engineering. I got a degree in Music Production & Engineering from BIMM University. I then decided to develop my passion for music business, completing 3 internships within production management, festival management and PR. I've worked for some amazing companies, finetuning my skills within Digital Marketing, Branding, Publishing, Artist Management, Business Development, Music NFTS and more. With over 10 years of experience, I've helped many artists to go above and beyond their own expectations. I will never fall out of love with this industry!

Since childhood, I've always had a passion for music. In my teen years, I began recording music professionally but had a halt to focus on my education and secure a degree in History & Diplomatic studies. After University, I became a professional music journalist covering some of the biggest stories & celebrities from the African continent & beyond. My editorial pieces led to my being recognized by The Recording Academy (The GRAMMYs). My burning desire to help artists succeed led to me delving into PR and ensuring that I tell the artist's stories in a fascinating and captivating manner.

I lived in Oxfordshire until age 22 & have been lucky enough to see lots of live music growing up. This, and having an older brother who played drums in several bands inspired me to learn to play piano from a young age (though a bit rusty now!). I actually come from the food industry, no doubt influenced by having a mum who's a great cook - we always had homemade food around the house. I then trained as a professional chef in an Oxford University College. I love how surprising flavour can be when you experiment - similar to music really! I'm now in Devon, lapping up the views & coastal walks mostly with my partner who also specialisies in playlisting.

After studying Music Management at university, I started my career in the music industry through booking in 2017. I was excited to reinvent myself during the pandemic; building relationships with artists and securing multi-genre music campaigns online. I started working as a PR Manager for artists globally while living in Seoul where I was studying music production. I stayed there for 2 years collaborating with independent Korean labels. I moved back to my home country France in December 2021 where I continue to work in music PR. Decent allows me to do what I love most: being a part of (super talented) artists' journeys.

Music has always been my driving passion. After finishing my masters degree in music, I was invited to conferences and events across Europe, building a network of academic and industry professionals. Having got stuck in a completely unrelated 9-5 job, as a result of the pandemic, I began writing and releasing music during lockdown, and met so many new talented artists.

Inspired to support these artists, I helped to establish Future Hits Radio. Dedicated to promoting unsigned and emerging music, 24/7. Working for Decent now means I can take this to the next level and offer artists more amazing opportunities, to get their music and their stories heard

Artist Liaison Executive

 I’ve always had an unwavering love for music. From a young age, I spent my spare time discovering new artists and practicing piano. Fueling my passion further, I then pursued a degree in Music Management, to help me grow within the industry. I have spent the past 18 months actively involved in the music industry, working as a virtual assistant to artists and industry managers. My goal is to continue working within the music industry working closely with industry professionals and artists, contributing to their growth and success.


From the age of 10 when Billy first picked up a guitar he knew that music was always going to be his first love. Since leaving school at 18 he aspired to be in a band and be on big stages like his childhood hero's Oasis, The Beatles, Elvis Presley and many more.
After 7 years touring the UK & Europe with his band Catfish & The Bottlemen, the break through came in 2013 when they signed to Ben Lovetts (mumford & sons) label Communion Records and released their EP. That EP had the foundation tracks on it that became part of their Platinum selling debut album in the UK as a part of a new record deal with Island Records.
Since then Billy has been a regular on the touring circuit and is now with his band HAIG alongside working at Decent Music PR.
His reasons for working with Decent: 'I know Tyler well (head of AL) and have always kept in touch since he first came to watch me perform a gig. I'd seen some of the fantastic results that Decent were getting but more so I liked the family vibe of the whole company. We are achieving some great things for artists worldwide but are also keeping the feel of it like a family where we all work hard and chip in for one another. This is what makes everyone tick. The balance of it all is great and I'm sure we'll continue to make some great connections and work with some incredibly talented artists for many years!
