TEAM DECENT

Anna Stephens Profile Photo.jpg

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!

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.

Anna Kate

Playlister

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.

Tyler Gibb

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'.

Artist Liaison Executive

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!

Laury Verdoux

Publicist

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.

Social Media Manager

Hailing from Doncaster, South Yorkshire UK, I began & continue my musical journey as a musician. I'm lead singer of Bang Bang Romeo, who had a top 5 iTunes debut album, toured with P!NK, Sting & Rag n Bone. We adorned main stages of the biggest festivals in Europe and played Wembley Stadium, Berlin Olympia Stadium, the O2 and more. I've had to obsess over digital marketing, social media and PR as an artist in my own right. I've managed digital marketing for multimillion pounds corporations from the cooperate world, to the artistic, to hospitality. Let’s get creative...

Artist Liaison Executive

I’ve been actively involved in the music scene in Cardiff since my early teens, performing & writing in bands as well as booking and promoting shows for international artists looking to tour through the city. My experience as a songwriter and artist, coupled with my professional experiences managing a music venue/late night bar allow me to take a pragmatic and strategic approach to arts, while also possessing the empathy and understanding of what it takes to be a creator in this day and age.

Radio Plugger

Originally born in Oxford but now living in London I've been involved in the music industry for over 15 years as a radio plugger, independent artist, producer and manager. I've worked with notable artists such as KRS-One, MC Lars, Kellindo Parker, Young Buck (G-Unit), Taz and a wealth of independent artists across the UK and America. I understand the importance and impact radio stations can have in helping an artist reach a wider audience. I've gained successful airplay from BBC One, 1xtra, Rinse and many other established stations as well as online, college and FM stations.
