  • Most of my work is based around Driving and or Tour Management in the Music Industry but I have also worked with the Theatre and Film Industry too. I have played in all sorts of bands myself over the years, I’ve organised 1000’s of gigs as i used to put on regular shows in Birmingham, I’ve set up tours, managed bands, put together press kits, pr and promotion strategies, worked out online strategies for artists big and small, I run a record label, and i’ve dealt with all sorts of madness along the way so I have an understanding of most problems, pressures and issues that performers and their crew may face. I’ve taken a lot of people to a lot of gigs from living rooms, small venues, squats, warehouses, TV and Radio Stations to major music Venues and Festivals of all shapes and sizes. I’m not an expert in everything ever but if I can’t help you or fix a problem I usually have a name or number in my phone that might resolve any issues along the way.
  • Iron Man Records offers specialist legal advice to anyone involved in music through Kevan Tidy at Tidylaw. Before working with Iron Man records Kevan was a musician and a songwriter. He encountered the usual problems and attempted scams of the record industry and had to develop an interest and expertise in contracts and copyright.

    Kevan soon realised that the only lawyers dealing in this kind of law were mainly in London and very expensive. There was nothing for up and coming musicians.

    Kevan decided to qualify as a solicitor and try to help. Kevan has never turned anyone away on the grounds that they cannot afford it. This applies to anyone, not just musicians. Kevan can help aspiring inventors, film makers, writers, musicians etc.
