We interviewed Attila regarding his new role with MVK ---
Attila Czako, Director of Artist Relations:
MAVERICK: First off, congratulations on your new role with MVK Music Group! What are you most excited about as you join the MVK team?
ATTILA: Thank you! I am definitely excited about this opportunity and truly thankful that Brian & Jesse have entrusted me with this new role. I have a deep passion for music and having the ability to make a positive impact on the industry is very exciting to me.
MAVERICK: What do you hope to contribute and accomplish in your role with MVK Music Group?
ATTILA: Well, I hope that I can help ensure that all of our bands are happy and provided our utmost and undivided attention at all times. I am looking to help continue the great momentum that Brian & Jesse already have going with MVK and make MVK a trusted and well known name in the industry. I also plan to help look for new talent (artists) for our company as we continue to grow.
MAVERICK: What are some of your goals for 2020 as they relate to your role?
ATTILA: My first order of business is to start working with our current bands..to get to know them, their goals and expectations and determine the best plan of action to start tackling these in phases. I believe that 2020 is going to be a great year for MVK.
MAVERICK: How would you describe your approach to working with bands & artists?
ATTILA: In the beginning, which is a key period, whether it is about a band or solo artist, I always search for the individual. I want to take time to have a personal and direct relationship with the artist. I want to see who they are off the stage, as well. It definitely helps grasp the "big picture' they see, the music career they envision for themselves. Building out that unique relationship beforehand can contribute to a greater mutual success in the future.
MAVERICK: What are your thoughts about the current state of the music industry (business side)?
ATTILA: The music industry as a whole or the artist in the music industry (laugh)? One of the "big three", Warner Music Group, just reported a solid first-quarter growth in 2020... Of course, physical sales declined and streaming and digital purchases rule. As the big majority of professional musicians are not signed by a label, these technological advancements can allow them to share their stuff to a wider audience all over the world. They also have more creative control. However shamefully, it doesn't show in their earnings at all. Without sounding overly idealistic and stupid, I totally believe that it can be changed for the better, and I believe that we (MVK) can help in turning the tide.
MAVERICK: What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
ATTILA: Music is my passion, so I love to do anything music related. I read a lot of (music) biographies and history books and I try to attend as many live concerts and shows as I can. I always value my time spent with great friends. Other than my family, they have utmost importance in my life.
MAVERICK: What would you say sets MVK apart from other artist / talent management companies?
ATTILA: Our approach...we believe in not following the mainstream crowd. We believe in transparency. We want to be trailblazers, to be forward thinking and make larger strides to make an impact in the industry. I think if we can disrupt the current system, and start doing bigger things in the best interest of our bands and the music industry as a whole, then we are doing it right.
