Jim Lawless

Music Business Tutor

Jim Lawless is the manager of both The Coronas (So Far So Good Records) and Fangclub (Universal Music Ireland). Having never thought of music management as a career, he fell into his position by attending the same school as three of The Coronas’ band members, and when they all left, he was asked to manage the band.

Jim worked with them through college part-time, but it wasn’t until they were signed to 3ú Records in their final year that Jim started to think of artist management as a career. Jim now has extensive knowledge of live and touring, having experienced all aspects of the music business and has previously worked closely with the Music Managers Forum in Ireland.

As part of the core team at Music Cork he is involved in sourcing industry panellists and coordinates the production of the music showcases.

With a background in business management, Jim is a Music Business Tutor at BIMM Dublin working across a range of topics.
