“Power, humour, energy and professionalism on highest level for more than 20 years. I’ve been working together with many great artists in this last 20 years and nobody has been easier to work with than RT from Arty Records!”

“Ronnie Taheny is an awesome force of nature. We blew into South Australia and she met us at the airport to be chauffeured for that entire leg of our tour there. She is an amazing promoter lining up 5 radio interviews and press and handling all the gritty details with ease and inspiration. She has a great totally competent team. I believe Ronnie is a dream come true to work with and I’m looking forward to the next tour in South Australia more than ever. “
SONiA Baltimore, USA soniadisappearfear.com
“It is clear that Ronnie Taheny’s experience as an accomplished musician and seasoned performer on the European touring circuit for close to 25 years has given her cred when it comes to practical knowledge in the music business and tour management field, that others who sit in offices could only dream of. Team Arty Records’ honest and straightforward approach with those performers and musicians who seek their advice and expertise is vital.”
Sue Germein (Manager), “GERMEIN”, AUSTRALIA
“HUGE shout out to Ronnie for the success of the recent Ben Ford-Davies European tour! Apart from the endless planning that ensured its success, I’ve never seen such single-handed, tireless and unfailing commitment, stamina, hard work and professionalism against all odds.
I’ve also seen first hand how much the European fans love her. Such generosity of spirit in passing the baton to the next gen.
Ronnie, you are a gem and we all, you know, kinda like you xx”
Petrola Music Agency (CEO), GERMANY
“Ronnie was spot-on with finding the right words to describe me and my business and during that branding process, I grew as an artist as well; feeling more grounded, focused and clear in the expertise I have to offer to my public.

selling and being a darn good influencer. Also, she has decades of industry knowledge in all facets, is super-supportive of musicians and understands what we go through.”
Jenn Barrett (and the Night Shift) , SA
“Ronnie Taheny and her team at Arty Records were the perfect hosts for my tour in South Australia.
Not only working tirelessly to ensure we had excellent audiences at all the events, but ‘the above and beyond’ approach to their work meant that all schedules were super organised, transport and accommodation was all sorted and with a minimal amount of fuss.
Ronnie’s passion and dedication for supporting performing artists is evident in her unshakeable enthusiasm and ‘can-do’ attitude. But even more than this, she gets results which sees everyone involved feeling valued in the process.
I cannot recommend the services of Arty Records highly enough for the attention to detail, the wealth of knowledge and expertise which comes from years in the industry and their uplifting and inspiring attitude to work, music and life.”
Khristian Mizzi, Touring Singer Songwriter, Vic, AUS

“Ronnie and Arty Records assisted me with planning and booking my first tour of the UK and Europe in 2013 – it was a great success! As an independent artist from Adelaide, with a dream of launching an international career, and with all the financial and logistic challenges that involves, having someone with Arty Records’ street smarts and decades of experience in your corner was an absolute blessing. Their sheer enthusiasm, seemingly endless energy and masses of music industry know-how make Arty Records a powerful mix for taking your music career to the next level. Supportive, encouraging and comprehensive with her advice, they leave no stone unturned… and they’re very generous to boot!

The Arty Records team cares deeply about where I am heading as an artist. They have provided me with absolutely invaluable advice and feedback, have bent over backwards for me, guiding me through the industry, training me into good habits, organising shows and most importantly helping me find my artistic voice and brand. Thank you very, very much to Ronnie and the rest of the Aussie team at Arty Records. I could not have achieved what I have without their guidance.”
