RSR335 – Alena Moran – Producer Engineer Manager at Triple 8

Do you really want to talk $$ when it's time to rock? Alena talked about managing clients like F Reid Shippen, why a manager is not your booking agent, how the most important thing is the project itself, and where you can improve with social media.

My guest today is Alena Moran a producer/engineer and artist manager based out of Nashville, TN. Her current roster includes Jon Randall , F. Reid Shippen , Cason Cooley, and Shani Gandhi. In addition to management, Alena handles production coordination work for artists including Seaforth , Tyler Braden, Jordan Harvey , and Warren Zeiders. 

Alena began her career in the music business as a photographer and blogger based out of Washington DC, and eventually relocated to Nashville in 2010 to attend Belmont University. She spent several years as a freelance audio engineer, studio manager, and production coordinator, before moving into management. 

In 2018, Alena joined Triple 8 Management as a full-time manager and launched their Creative Management vertical where she focuses on the roster’s producer and engineer clients. Outside of music, Alena trains in aerial acrobatics and spends her free time hanging out with her dog and cat. She also managed my Bonnaroo backstage Haybale Studio from  2015-2017 which is how we met.
