Jez Ryan founded a music news website called Acid Stag back in 2010, and has been a strong supporter of fine upcoming Australian musicians ever since, and has built a reputation as a credible tastemaker within the global music scene.
In 2015 he also founded a management agency called Mammal Sounds, where he now represents four successful Australian artists; Golden Vessel, Benji Lewis, CLN and Midnight Pool Party.
In June 2018 Jez launched Mammal Sounds Records, and has since had successful releases with upcoming Australian artists such as JVLY, Laurel Laxxes, Abraham Tilbury, daste, LOVER and North Elements.
All of this has given Jez a unique perspective on the music industry as a whole. He has the opportunity to experience the industry from many different aspects, and is in a position to learn what works in some areas and what doesn’t work in others, and is then able to use that knowledge to help benefit each of his other endeavours.
