Shortly after having her now 11 year old daughter, Ingrid Renan was itching to get back into the music scene, coming on as the production manager for Kill Rock Stars and eventually a day manager for the label. Nearly a decade later, after leaving KRS, she has forged a lasting legacy in the Portland scene as a manager for some of the most recognizable artists out of Portland including Starfucker, Typhoon, Blitzen Trapper, And And And and Y La Bamba, After taking a nearly year long break from managing, Ingrid has come back into the forefront as the manager for the newly revived Y La Bamba and Kill Rock Stars Red Bull Sound Select Curator. Ingrid came in and chatted with us about management, photography, music and why she thinks there should be equal objectification between the sexes.

Episode 1: Stirling Myles

Myles has toured the US and Europe with his band Alameda while working as a social media manager for the boutique music licensing agency Marmoset and writing for publications such as Seattle Weekly and 1859. Most recently, he started the series Bus Talk, where he collaborates with artists to make drawings of things he overhears on his daily commute. And, he’s been mistaken for Dan Auerbach on more than one occasion.

I sat down with him last fall in our first-ever podcast to ask him about everything from his secret hidden talent to advice on social media and touring in the US and Europe. Listen below as we work our way through a myriad of questions and topics.
