Born Jarrel Carter, this multi-faceted DJ and music manager has spent many years ensuring his success was self made and not solely derived from his family lineage. Known nationally as a popular disc jockey, 'Rel' received his Bachelor of Science in Business and Administration in 2011 before launching his independent management company, 'Carter Wisdom Management', managing and guiding the careers of upcoming artist and songwriters. By 2015 Rel had become a ambassador for his Uncle (Business Mogul Jayz's) popular Dusse' brand.
He currently maintains a weekly internet podcast for the brand from his penthouse office of RocNation records and maintains the role of A&R coordinator for the multi-million dollar music empire. With the launch of the "Culture" tour, Rel has the opportunity to leave the busy daily offerings of the Roc Nation offices in Manhattan to celebrate creative excellence around the country and witness it first hand.
This platform is designed to provide independent creatives with an informative, affordable and accessible alternative to the traditional artist showcase. The Rel Carter Culture tour aims to provide artists with real facts and deliver upfront realities of the music business while simultaneously providing the opportunity to build rapport and engage with a experienced industry professional. In hopes of bridging the divide between enterprise and independent creativity, the Rel Carter Culture Tour designs a unique bridge between community, industry and arts that encourages a heightened understanding of business and the tools necessary for artistic elevation.
this is not a showcase.
