Gabby Chelmicka

Artist Management Module Leader

Gabby has spent over 20 years working in the music business. She cut her teeth on the road with Bryan Ferry, before moving into music TV broadcasting and managed the live event elements of the 1996 Brit Awards – infamous in live TV broadcast history for the controversial moment when Jarvis Cocker stormed the stage during Michael Jackson’s performance.

In 1996 Gabby became Robbie Williams’s personal manager. She was a key member of his management team at ie:music for nearly ten years and was integral in the organisation of Robbie’s early tours, including his seminal gigs at Slane Castle in 1999 and his Knebworth gigs in 2003. Gabby was also key in the marketing and launch of the subsequent DVD release of Robbie’s Knebworth gigs. The artist Damien Hirst then asked Gabby to launch and run his record label ‘Is Good’ to release the music of his long time friends, The Hours.

Since moving back to her home town of Bristol, Gabby has been working on a freelance basis in artist liaison and as a live event producer.
