Joy Best lets her passion for music and the authentic connection it forges between artists and listeners drive her career in the music industry. She has had the pleasure of supporting various artists, including Hippo Campus, India.Arie, AWFBEAT, and Heffner through various Tour Management, Talent Buying, Artist Booking, Audio Engineering and Festival Operations endeavors.
While simultaneously pursuing her passion for artist management, Joy continues to work on her Electric Bass craft (studying under Victor Wooten, Justin Raines, and more) by applying and getting accepted to Berklee College of Music on a merit & performance-based scholarship. While attending Berklee, Joy was introduced to a myriad of opportunities. In an effort to be fully engrossed in live music, she began her career within venues by operating as an assistant buyer/event coordinator at a Boston-local venue while also functioning as Event Staff at just about any venue that was looking for support. She later went on to use her background in live music production, event coordination, and guest relations to serve as the VIP services representative at the 2023 Live at Lititz Conference. Through various live entertainment opportunities such as the HUBB (CAA), She's the Music, and Berklee Popular Music Institute. Outside of event production, artist booking, and venue operations, she has interned with tour management teams and festival production companies.
She is currently working to support artists on the Governors Ball, Inkcarceration, Lollapalooza, and Faster Horses lineups through Berklee’s Berklee Popular Music Institute program while beginning her career at Wasserman Music as a general assistant.
