After 15 years as a professional opera singer, Stephen started the online singer's service The Opera Stage in 2013 together with Marcin Kopec. As CEO he has overseen its development as a large resource in the opera industry, providing jobs & audition information for unsigned singers, arranging large-panel auditions, and more recently putting on courses for promising singers.
In addition, together with Kopec he founded Svanholm Kopec Artist Management in 2014 and worked as an agent developing some of the UK's brightest talents there until 2016.
Stephen's wide awareness of the needs and aspirations of young artists, together with his strong emphasis on career coaching and development put him in a unique position to help artists to plot and grow their careers. Svanholm Artists Management is his new agency, based in Stockholm, Sweden.
