Jen Ochej

Tour Manager | Photographer
Collector of laugh lines

Oh hi there.

The worst part about being a touring musician is all the stuff you have to do that *isn't music*. But what if you could go on tour and just worry about your setlist and putting on the best damn show every night? What if you didn't have to think about routing and accomms and advancing and merch? What if someone else could take care of all of that for you? Enter, Jen. I'm so glad you're here.

Whether it’s tour management, merch, photography, or almost anything in between, if you need it done I can do it.

(Okay, there are some things I don’t do.)

At my core, I’m a detail person who thrives under pressure and loves being the problem solver. I’m the one people come to when they need something done, figured out, or taken off their plate, and when I took on my first tour managing gig (three weeks in the UK), I knew it was what I was born to do– a perfect culmination of my skills and passions.

There’s a good chance I’m exactly what you’ve been looking for. So if you’re ready to let go of the things that take up your brain-space and keep you from being the artistdrop me a line. Let’s chat.

Past & Present Clients

Nice things people have said about me:

  • Having Jen on tour is like having an extension of my own brain working outside of myself, so I can focus on why I'm there: to perform at my highest level, while ensuring our business is operating at its highest level. Jen is competent and capable, she understands the ins and outs of running a music business on the road, and she gets the job done. You're in great hands with Jen Ochej on your team.

  • Jen Ochej is one of my constant “go to” people when I need important and time sensitive work done from a reliable source. … She is very reliable and valuable to me. It’s been cool (but not surprising) to see her work her way to Toronto [since starting out in Halifax].

  • Jen Ochej has determination unlike anyone I have ever met. Her exceptional work ethic and willingness to learn make her a pleasure to work with.

    Kim Harris
  • Since meeting Jen, I have found her to be a constant source of knowledge and support. Not only is she determined and motivated to achieve her own goals but she has a true passion for music and for promoting and supporting musicians who are beginning their journey.
