Sarah Martin McIvor
Sarey Martin McIvor was raised in the South Bay beach-cities of Los Angeles. She graduated from Concordia University with a B.A. in Communications, and has spent over a decade existing as both producer and talent manager in Los Angeles.
While in college, Sarey answered a call from a woman who simply started the conversation with the sentence “Would you like to work for Madonna?” From there, Sarey found herself commuting to Beverly Hills several days a week to be a trusted development assistant to Madonna’s Maverick Films. From there, Sarey went on to work in television at E! Entertainment for a stint before taking a job at boutique management firm Spectacle Entertainment Group, where she became right-hand to producer/manager Andy Gould and his long-time client, Rob Zombie.
As an executive at Spectacle, she’s worked as associate producer on Zombie’s The Lords of Salem (Anchor Bay), which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival’s Midnight Madness in 2012. She also worked as music coordinator on that film, a role she also performed previously on Zombie’s Halloween II (Weinstein). She also worked as a music supervisor on cult favorites The Butcher Brothers’ The Violent Kind (which premiered at Sundance in 2010), and helped produce a Rob Zombie live concert film, The Zombie Horror Picture Show (Universal 2014), the avant-guard tour documentary, Transylvanian Transmissions (Roadrunner 2010), as well as numerous music videos.
In the meantime, Sarey’s played an influential role in the careers of various music acts as manager. She had a hands-on role in the long-awaited Guns N’ Roses album Chinese Democracy in 2008. In 2011, she worked closely with Booker T. Jones’ collaborative album with The Roots entitled The Road From Memphis (ANTIRecords), which won a Grammy that year for Best Pop Instrumental Album. Sarey also worked projects with Devo, Les Claypool (Primus), The Monkees, and Morrissey, along with six Rob Zombie albums, and many others. In addition to continued work with Rob Zombie on both music and film, she is in development on a diverse roster of film and tv projects with Prospect House Entertainment, specializing in quality genre material.
