Drake Tigges: Seasoned Brand and Artist Development Manager Giving Talents a Shot at Fame

With all his dreams centered on building others’ dreams, Drake Tigges has earned himself the reputation of the one person that brands and artists can trust with their careers. Operating out of Nashville, Drake Tigges is the founder of Youngville Agency, a management and development firm that takes brands and artists from zero to hero. Drake’s journey started at an early age, and he found success quite early, too, when he began to learn everything about the music industry. This led him to establish Youngville Agency, which has grown into the powerhouse that it is today.

Learning every available marketing and campaign trick at 18 was enough to get him started with any artist and mold their career into what they desire. One thing Drake did to ensure longevity in the business was link up with the bigger names in the industry, such as Struggle Jennings, Jellyroll, Big Smo, BWA Ron and Michael Johnson (the UFC fighter). Building these connections early in his career set him up for success and soon gave him a level of credibility that made many independent brands and artists want to work with him.

Drake Trigges’ passion lies in helping brands grow, and he ensures that happens for every brand that chooses to work with him or his agency. He even takes things a notch higher by allowing the brands and artists to earn 100% of their income without taking any percentage. “At Youngville Agency, growth is what we’re passionate about, and we make our clients comfortable by focusing on just that rather than money or other stuff,” Drake says.

Youngville Agency’s value offering is to help artists and brands reach their full potential within the first 12 months through good content and excellent campaigns. One of the company’s most notable achievements is Urban Blaze, a country music singer who had only 217 followers when the agency signed him. At the age of 19, in less than two years, he has a song that made it to number 30 on the charts, more than 357 thousand streams, and verified social media handles. His success with Urban Blaze has further cemented his place as a brand manager of repute who knows his onions.

Drake Tigges is well-versed in the production of different music genres, and he understands what makes audiences gravitate toward a new artist or brand. He has established a culture at Youngville Agency that allows his clients to remain 100% independent while the agency delivers on its management and development promises within the fastest possible time.

Drake’s passion for music never waned at any point, and since his foray into the artist management scene, he has not looked back since. Growth is his major drive, and he keeps looking for new ways to keep his brand growing. His five-year goal is to become one of the most well-known talent development agencies in Nashville, Tennessee, and other parts of the United States. Youngville Agency thrives on the hard work that goes into quality content creation and effective branding for its clients and will like to shed more light on those aspects of its business. Learn more about Drake Trigges and Youngville Agency on the official Instagram page.
