Biography

On the balmy evening of May 25th 1984, Ryan Kasinec's very pregnant mother was on a couch, in labor and not going anywhere. Why would a woman about to give birth to her second child and first-born son not be rushed to the hospital? Because the band was still on stage of course!

Ryan's dedicated and hard working father was treating this Friday night just as he had many others before. He was setting up sound equipment and doing line checks. Two songs into the headlining acts set list he is informed that his wife's water has broken and was in labor. Knowing no one else could be trusted to run the board and produce a great show, he told the roadie that his next child would have to wait till the show was over to come into the world.

It's no wonder that almost twenty three years later Ryan Kasinec is leaving Berklee College of Music with a degree in Music Business Management and ready to take on the world. From A&R to marketing Ryan has poured himself into honing his skills as an up-and-coming music businessman.

Ryan has most recently worked as Director of Touring and Promotions for Heavy Rotation Records under legendary artist manager and educator Jeff Dorenfeld. Heavy Rotation Records is Berklee College of Music's internationally acclaimed student run record label.
