There are very few people who GET the industry like Steph does and when you combine that wealth of experience and knowledge with a genuine passion for developing artists, you've got someone who can literally make the difference between you becoming a household name, or playing local shows forever.
If I was in a band now, and I knew what I know about Steph, wild horses could not drag me away from wanting to work with her.
There isn't a key player in the alternative world who doesn't know Steph Van Spronsen - if you want those people to know about YOU...work with her.
I saw Steph's potential when she first walked in the door at Live Nation and knew that she had already established herself as a well respected and trusted individual within the music industry. Now with her experience at Live Nation under her belt, she is an unstoppable force. With an unrivalled passion for discovering and nurturing new talent and with her overall experience of this industry, you can trust that the advice she gives will be invaluable.
I have had the pleasure of working with Steph for over a decade when she came to intern at Visible Noise after we met at a club show in London when she was running an independent promotions company for Metal And Hardcore bands. Fast forward through her plugging with the Noise Cartel, travelling to the US for charity work still linked to music, becoming well connected in her own right and moving to be a booker at Download Festival whilst working with Live Nation, she has created a great career for herself and outstanding network.
Steph has a great work ethic, as well as integrity, and really cares about the acts she works with.
Steph Van Spronsen is one of the most passionate people I have met in this industry. She puts her heart and soul into every project. If I was in a band Steph would be the person I would ask for advice.
I have always found Steph to be a straight shooter and they are in rare commodity in the music business. Consultancy is as much about avoiding the incredible number of sharks and snakes as it is finding what is right for you. Steph can be trusted to help you navigate these infested waters.
Working with Steph has been somewhat of an eye-opener. Working on campaigns with her I found her work thorough, personal and effective. Also bear in mind we have been working danish artists on a very tough English market with great results. All my recommendations go out to this powerhouse!
I've worked closely with and alongside Steph for over just half a decade now, and there are few people as passionate and professional as her when it comes to music promotion. Constantly inspiring, forever brimming with brilliantly innovative ideas and always prepared to go that extra mile for the things she believes in, she has the sort of drive and dedication that you don't find everyday and will always want on your side. With a keen ear, an always approachable demeanour and a loyalty unlike anyone else, Steph is a unique and unmatchable addition to any project, team or collective that's lucky enough to have her.
Been working professionally with Steph for nearly 6 years now. First in PR then as a promoter. Her honesty, professionalism, organisation, work ethic and all round knowledge in the Rock world is unparalleled. There is very few people I trust in this industry but I can say without a doubt she is one of very few people I do trust.
She always has your best interests at heart and is excellent at communicating your progress and where you stand.
As a new band trying to navigate through the UK scene, Steph was a extremely valuable resource to have in our corner. She has gone above and beyond to advise us and connect us with new people to help our success grow exponentially. Steph shows genuine excitement and passion for bands/artists and the music they create. We could not endorse her more as someone that was pivotal in our career
It was a real pleasure working with Steph! She showed a real dedication to providing the best possible service to us during our years working together and it was clear that we could rely on her and her extensive knowledge of the industry. She had a great hands on approach in terms of developing artists and was always willing to go the extra mile and make herself available at any time to answer our queries. I could not recommend her enough!
Steph is a dream to work with. Totally switched on, quick to respond and full of ideas.
Her A&R skills are on point – always with her finger on the pulse of new/upcoming artists. She knows her stuff and I have loved working with her and wouldn’t hesitate to work with her again in the future.
