Jordan Levine is the tour manager for recording artist Bazzi and works alongside Wasted Potential, an all around design & management company in the music industry.

Raised in Vernon Hills, Illinois he always had an interest in being involved in the music industry. In high school he began to realize that he could do anything that he wanted and found ways to get involved. He booked his first show, flew in an artist from out of state and brought in 150+ people from surrounding high schools. Although money was lost, it was a starting point for him.

After graduating from the University of Iowa in 2016, he locked in a gig to sell merch for Huey Mack on tour alongside Sammy Adams. From there, things started to pick up.

He tour managed JMSN, did a one off show with Quincy, traveled 34 cities across the nation + 10 European stops with Witt Lowry and had a chance to be an assistant tour manager for G-Eazy.

Today he’s working full-time for Bazzi as they head out on The Cosmic Tour and get ready to head to Europe alongside Justin Timberlake for The Man Of The Woods Tour.

In this episode Jordan discusses how your personality, character, willingness to learn and grind is what will land you the right opportunities. Be patient, things won’t always happen right away. The way you carry yourself is key, BE confident and why sometimes we have to roll the dice.
