Hi and welcome ..
Pleased you made it to Frusion. The photo to the right gives you some idea of who you're talking to, emailing or maybe meeting and features the fuel I depend on, coffee!
Through the years since I formed the company in 2000 we've focused here on world and fusion music's but Frusion, and since now we cover indie, alt, Electro, and all points in between you will now find much of our non "world" music over on our sister agency site at FIZZION.eu you'll find high quality innovative Jazz, Electro Swing, Glitch hop, Pop, EDM, multi-media shows and more.
Here on the Frusion site folk, roots, reggae in all its forms, African, Balkan, Euro roots classical, crossover artists and much more in fact you'll even find dance and other projects within this site, it's all there to explore, time to join us in our audio and other adventures.
We are based in the UK and have a presence in Vienna (Austria). You can check out the extensive media services we offer to artists and the arts at www.frusionmedia.com
Since starting Frusion some years ago we've always gone with new media as the only way forward, so although you will see video in our on site archives you'll actually see a video playlist on every artist's page regularly updated. Also do take a look at our youtube channel at www.frusionyoutube.com there you will find a massive archive of superb videos and ideas for your programming, or have a listen to the Frusion Radio while you browse the site if you just fancy some sounds - just click listen at the top right of any page.
Importantly you'll see from the mission statement what Frusion is about in terms of providing a full and extensive service both to the promoter and to the artists with whom we work.
Mostly we send music digitally via secure transfer but should you need CDs, press packs, photographs or biographies of any of our artists, we can supply them, and quickly!
In fact anything you need in order to come to an informed decision about who or what best fills your event needs.
I've been involved in the music industry for many years as musician, festival & event promoter, PA & lighting engineer, and worked as arts centre programmer, and continue to work with many international music bodies and as consultant for the music industry as a freelance site/stage manager, sound engineer and MC at festivals and events worldwide; I even perform sometimes as a musician across the world!
And the reason I'm telling you this on the front page of the site is this, I am aware from my work in all aspects of the industry what makes for a successful concert/event. I know what you need because I've been there and in fact still am working at the event horizon!
The bottom line is that at Frusion we have extensive experience from all areas of the entertainments industry, know what you want and how best to deliver it; we promise clear unbiased expert advice, and in the highly unlikely situation where we can't cover your needs....
We will from time to time recommend other agencies and acts we don't represent - why? - Because we firmly believe in providing an unbiased service and a very strong belief in working together with others to provide great entertainment. No question!!!
