Born in 1978, Sven started his first band Aborted back in 1995 and those were his first steps in the music industry. Ever since, Sven has been managing/co managing the band and his other projects throughout the years and extensively toured the globe and closely worked with other seasoned professionals, record companies, publishers and agents throughout the world. Next to working closely in the music industry as staff for the french record company Listenable Records or booking shows and festivals in belgium, or having solid experience with marketing and design, Sven brings a strong creative edge and out of the box thinking for our team.
Born in 1986, Patrick has come a multi-faceted way from promoting small shows in the Swiss countryside over concert photography and helping out smaller bands to an internship at Century Media and Nuclear Blast and now touring crew for bands like Aborted, Decapitated and others, to tour management jobs for Avocado Booking and Rock The Nation Tours, production management at a couple Swiss venues and a big number of jobs as a lighting director. Thanks to his university studies in economics & management, Patrick brings a strong business sense into Avernus Entertainment.
In 2013 Sven and Patrick started working together as far as tour management and production work. Finally in 2014 the two decided to join forces as Avernus Entertainment and are now offering a wide range of services for bands to help them on their path to global conquest.
Avernus Entertainment started as an artist management company who represents and consults bands, musicians etc within the world of heavy music (from melodic to brutal, from progressive to aggressive). In the development of the company, we were more than happy to be a part of the growth of bands such as Skyharbor (now with Outerloop Management) and Aborted (now with EJ/Prosthetic). While artist management is still an important part of the company’s services, the main f0cus has now shifted to all things production.
Our approach is to bring our experience and business sense into a band’s situation. While there are a set of globally valid rules, our main goal is to find individual creative solutions and a tailored network for every band. We are aware that every band has different goals, structures and cultures, and we think it is important that these are an integral part of the strategies and solutions.
We are an energetic and pro active company which specialises in the development of «breakthrough point artists» by offering full services ranging from consulting, accounting, marketing, tour production to about any facet in the world of how to run a band. Our goal is to create and enhance various forms of revenue for the artists on our roster, while increasing income, fan base, sales and over all growth.
We let musicians take care of the music while we focus on everything else.
