Talent Buyer, The Bowery Electric
Stephanie Boriskin was born into the music industry, with family in every sector from non-profit classical to stadium tour management. After interning at Columbia Records and graduating Hunter College, she joined the team at the Montauk, NY hotspot, The Surf Lodge, booking a wide range of artists. While mainly focusing on up and coming talent, like Noname and Ryn Weaver, she also booked internationally known performers like Janelle Monae, Halsey, Anderson .Paak, and The Flaming Lips. After four years, she moved to The Bowery Electric to focus exclusively on lifting up artists looking to get their music out to the masses and grow their fan base. She is responsible for all booking, planning and social media for The Bowery Electric Live Premiere Sessions, a professionally mixed and multicamera shot livestream series with bands performing live in the venue.
