With over 30 years spent working with every type of participant in the industry, Dominic Kelly and his team at DKC have advised and worked with emerging and global artists, promoters, venues, record labels, publishers, merchandisers and agents, production companies (from lighting and sound to staging and security), and techs.


We do, and have worked with the world’s largest, and smallest in the business. We have set them up, strategized, and worked with management on a daily basis. We partner to bring you from sometimes small starting players to those that make serious and immensely successful global impact.

We do this best by working with you, and management, to ensure you have the strongest financial oversight, financial strategies, and highly experienced financial knowledge around every element of your business. From outstanding record and publishing contract negotiations, to making certain you make the maximum possible from touring, we free you up to do what you do best, and ensure you make, and keep, the most from it.


Having an advisor that has sat on all sides of that negotiation table has not previously been readily available.

It’s really important that individuals do what they are good at, and get other experts to do what they excel at. This way, profit and efficiency is maximized.

​Artists are currently underserved by tax and audit firms. These firms simply don’t have the industry wide commercial experience to assist to make informed decisions that add value, and drive success to new and higher levels.

​We work with both new and established acts, and serious businesses, that need structure and guidance, and will assist management by freeing them up from, and optimizing the financial role by providing expert assistance.

Working with a band’s manager, company’s managing director, legal representative, booking agent, and other team members, we focus on ensuring a clear, effective financial plan is developed. This allows the team to get on with what they are good at, while knowing that all touring, financial administration, and deals are secure and optimized.

Included with handling finances are tax filings, worldwide tour budgeting, significantly improved show settlements, profitability increases through strict financial controls on costs and income lines, new income strategies, asset protection and acquisition, effective tax and structure planning, assisting with investment strategy, estate planning and oversight, contract review and negotiations, royalty tracking and auditing, stake holder reporting, and banking. In addition, all of the common garden auditing and accounting flow from this, and are covered in house.

This makes what is otherwise a reactive compliance necessity into a pro-active and profitable core group partner. The client benefits from an overall plan with razor sharp execution, that drives real increased value.
