About

Founded by Patrick David and Christian Fighera in 2009, Two Gentlemen is an independent music company based in Switzerland.

At Two Gentlemen, we strive to represent and promote artists in whom we truly believe in. From newcomers to well-established acts, we are committed to building long-term relationships and honoring the uniqueness of each artist with a tailored creative strategy. We seek to achieve this by supporting their genuine vision and fight for an equitable and respectful music industry. With more than ten years of experience in live and recorded music, we have managed to evolve within a fast-moving environment and we owe it all to our squad of passionate and dedicated professionals.

Concerts & Touring

Crafted from a mighty independent spirit, our company takes pride in booking and promoting local and international acts with a large spectrum of reliable partners, from small to larger venues and festivals. Through an extended knowledge of the Swiss live music landscape, we focus on bringing touring opportunities in line with specific needs and ambitions. We work with many gifted artists and celebrate diversity of genres within our roster. Discovering and developing the finest talents is our vision ; creating bridges between audiences and them is our mission.

In addition, we offer our skills as executive producer to various partners for events such as m4music Festival in the French-speaking part of Switzerland.

Label & Publishing

With a seasoned experience in label management of more than twenty years, we are proud to collaborate with accomplished artists — Sophie Hunger, The Young Gods, Erik Truffaz, Puts Marie, The Animen, Dino Brandão — by guiding them in the process of releasing new music. From recording sessions to promotional strategies, we stand beside them every step of the way and we do our best to make their music accessible all over the world, regardless of format or genre. Furthermore, we provide guidance on all things merchandise.

As a label service provider, we assist in the following departments:
– Manufacturing process
– Neighboring and publishing rights administration
– Sales and distribution
– Digital strategies linked to streaming
– Marketing & promotional campaigns

We lovingly take care of a catalogue of over 600 works for our artists in publishing. We have been working with artists for more than 20 years to secure national and oversees exposure, leading to many wonderful collaborations.

Our primary role as publishers is to represent authors and composers in licensing deals around the world. We consider it a privilege and a responsibility to take care of the works of our talented artists. This is why it is important to us both that the works be respected in the usage and that a fair deal be found between our artists and licensees. As consultants in the fields of music licensing, remuneration negotiations and publishing deals, we provide expertise and represent our artists’ rights in a honest, transparent and fair way.

Management

At Two Gentlemen, we believe in a 360° approach — our goal is to support and help artists grow, evolve and assert themselves on the international music scene. We proudly represent internationally confirmed acts such as Sophie Hunger, Erik Truffaz, The Young Gods, Puts Marie, The Animen and Dino Brandão. A complete and total care is given to all aspects of an artist’s career, ranging from record releases to touring plans and publishing deals. By keeping our management roster limited, we aim to dedicate ourselves to their respective projects on a daily basis and to offer them the best possible approach for a successful career in the long term.
