Jack Abraham currently teaches the Live Event & Festival Management programme.

Today, he is primarily an artist manager. His day-to-day tasks can include promoting a show, producing a record, negotiating a contract, or driving a van.

He founded and operated the groundbreaking music venue Kansas Smitty’s from 2015 to 2020. Concurrently, he managed and developed the influential jazz band of the same name, signing them to K7 and co-producing several successful digital and physical releases.

When COVID struck, his team launched KSTV, a dedicated YouTube and Patreon community that produced over 100 livestreams featuring performances, documentaries, and interviews. They raised over £200k, which was used to build a team of young producers and camera operators to produce high-quality streams featuring emerging and established artists throughout the entire COVID pandemic. Their work won the Jazz FM Digital Innovation Award and the Parliamentary Jazz Award for Digital Innovation in 2022.

Currently, he is managing Giacomo Smith and Jackson Mathod, tour managing for Damian Lewis, and producing a documentary on Gypsy Jazz. He is also involved in music sync briefs and organizing many public and private live events.

He is deeply passionate about artist development. Furthermore, he coaches artists and executives, helping them to gain clarity on their goals and the pathways to achieving them.
