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.
ADAM MASSON; 2018 RIFFLANDIA ARTIST SERVICES COORDINATOR
Music world friends, say hello to the best of the best! Jen and her team were one of the best I have ever had the pleasure of working with from the very beginning.
They were all so kind and I have heard lots of great feedback from everyone.
We really appreciated how easy it was to talk to Jen and how we really felt like we could all work together as a team to make everything happen.
I really hope we get to work together again in the future!
JORDAN GIBBS; LIGHTS FAN, TV/FILM PRODUCTION COORDINATOR
Haven't personally worked with Jen but she is a FANTASTIC Tour Manager! Nice, pleasant to be around, and cares about fans! Would be a fantastic addition to any tour!
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!
ASHLEY DEJESUS; LIGHTS FAN, COMIC CON MANAGER (TANA FORD)
I have seen Jen HUUUUUUSTLE sales and connect with fans on a super human unbelievably kind and authentic level. She will geek out and champion your work as if it's her own in the most supportive, fuck yeah you're amazing and Jane Foster, Thor Goddess of Thunder must protect you at all costs way!
RIA MAE; MUSICIAN, TWO-TIME JUNO AWARD NOMINEE
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].
KATHLEEN EDWARDS; MUSICIAN, MULTI-JUNO AWARD NOMINEE
In all my years of surviving and thriving in the Canadian arts scene, there is one thing I know to be true: Persistence and passion above all else. In the short time I’ve known Jen Ochej, I can confidently say she is the poster child for such a mantra.
KIM HARRIS; MUSICIAN, MULTI-MUSIC NOVA SCOTIA & EAST COAST MUSIC AWARD WINNER
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.
CAITLIN HARNETT; MUSICIAN
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.
KEV CORBETT; MUSICIAN
You know how musicians can barely remember their own names, at the best of times? Well, Jen Ochej is the girl who remembers their name, SIN#, and what font they're supposed to use, not to mention cueing them on all their lyrics, weirdo tunings, and where they're supposed to be tomorrow and for the next week. Seriously, she knows how the grants work, she knows how long Rose Cousins' fingernails are, Don Brownrigg's birthday AND his mother's (in case he forgets), and she knows what the hell you need. Jen Ochej is Folk duct tape. Hire her, for cryin' out loud, she is bound to be a hundredaire any minute.
