International Creative Directory for Musicians 🎵

Last updated: February 27, 2021

FIRST, A LITTLE BACKGROUND...

👋 Hi - I’m Jo Lukis (she/her) - I’ve been a music marketer for the past decade (with a visual communication background), starting out at labels and mgmt companies in my sunny hometown of Sydney, Australia and now in my new home near the sometimes less sunny Toronto, Canada.
I own and run Just Really Good, and work with a roster of brilliant artists and music start-ups primarily from Canada and Australia. 

WHAT IS THIS?

A growing list of incredible creative talent for hire in the music industry - with a focus on creators from Canada, Australia/NZ, USA and the UK - that will be updated monthly.

WHY?

Whether you’re at a major label or completely independent, the struggle for quality content is real. Ever ask for recommendations on Facebook and just get a bunch of tagged personal profiles? Super useful, huh? 😕
So I pulled together this international directory of some of my favourite creators to provide artists and their teams with a useful resource that links directly to everyone’s portfolios and contact details. I really hope this helps connect a lot of incredibly talented people! 🖤
