AUSTRADIRECT INPUT #9 WITH JEN LONG
For this webinar, we’ll be speaking with artist manager Jen Long about her work with recording artist, producer and performer Austra.
Katie Austra Stelmanis has been better known by her middle name for four albums (all released on Domino Records in the UK), 10 years and countless tours. The Toronto-based classically trained musician is known exploring texture, atmosphere and emotion that increasingly examine the contemporary sensation of being haunted by the future.
Jen Long is an artist manager and broadcaster who will be speaking to us about Austra’s 2020 album release, HiRUDiN. Jen has worked in various positions across the music industry over the past decade and a half, including as a journalist and running her own label (Kissability). In this webinar, we’ll be speaking with Jen about her role working with Austra. The relationship between manager and artist is one that is key to so many successful artist projects, with the manager playing a range of roles. Jen will also be joining us as part of our wider Future Yard team going forwards, so this is chance to hear more from her about her career and experiences.
