Jen Ochej
 

Hey!
That’s me, Jen Ochej →
I’m a Tour Manager.

Or, as one of my favourite four-year-olds once called me, a tour ‘imaginer’.

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.

I always say, if I'm doing my job right, you won't have to worry about anything except putting on your best show every night.

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 on the road and keep you from being the artist, drop me a line. Let’s chat.

 
 

Hmm? you want more than that?

Ok, here’s some other stuff about me (this is where the fun stuff is).

I’ve been on the road with a lot of really great people.

 

Artists like Lights, Jessie Reyez, The Dears, and many more have taken me across North America and to cool places like London, Paris, Brussels, Moscow, Istanbul, and many other stops in between.

Nice things people have said about me

Some people have said and written some really nice things about me over the years - it’s a pretty great feeling,
to be honest, even though I’m generally more of a behind-the-scenes kind of person:

 
 

LIGHTS; MUSICIAN, COMIC BOOK CREATOR, MULTI-JUNO AWARD-WINNER

Within the time that I’ve known her, Jen blasted her way up from selling merch into tour managing our whole band and crew within a year. She’s a boss when she has to be, kick ass at organization and planning, and is always eager to take on the big jobs and learn from those around her. She’ll even join in on round robin Mario Kart if she has to.

KERRI OUGH (GOOD LOVELIES); MUSICIAN, JUNO AWARD-WINNER

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.

 
 

LESLEY ‘LADYDREADS’ COTTEN; BUS DRIVER

You are a driver's dream TM! Your ability to make everything crystal clear in MasterTour is beyond a blessing! You make a driver feel worthy and appreciated. I will forever be grateful for the tour we did together. I speak of you often as to how you had your shit together and made working with you a jewel. I look forward to working with you again!

You should take me on the road, too.

Really, I’d love to join you!
