For Immediate Release
(September 6th, 2013) New York, NY- Steve Rennie, long time music industry staple and current manager of the platinum selling artist Incubus, has launched an indiegogo campaign to help support season four of his web series entitled RENMAN LIVE.
With a “Fuck the Gatekeepers” mentality, Steve Rennie developed the website Renman Music and Business (renmanmb.com) as a platform for his web show RENMAN LIVE which is dedicated to helping aspiring artists and music industry professionals navigate their way around the business. Diving into the minds of some of the most successful managers, executives, A&R heads and musicians in the industry, RENMAN LIVE offers something that no other platform does, a collective of unique insight from some of music’s most sought after minds.
Rennie says about his venture with RENMAN LIVE, “Back when I was just getting started, I was very fortunate to meet a handful of folks who took an interest in me and mentored me on the ways of the real music business, lessons you could not learn in a book or in a classroom, taught to me by grisly veterans who had learned by doing. The knowledge they imparted to me was invaluable and had a huge impact on my career in the music business. I never forgot what they did and vowed 35 years ago that given the opportunity, I would do for other people what they had done for me.”
Having already invested a significant amount of personal capital to support the production and development of RENMAN LIVE, Rennie is looking to source the necessary funds needed to cover the production costs for the fourth season of RENMAN LIVE by offering incredible experiential packages. Packages that include 1 on 1 Skype conversations with Steve Rennie, backstage passes to the show, spending the day with Steve in Rio or Lima Peru while with Incubus allowing you to be manager for a day and many others.
