About me:My name is Ryan Stanley. I own 4 of a Kind Productions, LLC. Often referred to as 4okp.
First and foremost I'm a Professional Life Coach seeking Vocalists/Musicians/Bands that are interested in Improving their lives on any level that they see fit.
Do you want to become a better performer?
Do you want to play more gigs?
Do you need to focus more on marketing?
Do you want to be happier or healthier?
Do you just want to be a better Human Being?
I'm looking to collaborate with Individuals or Entire Bands at all levels of success who are aware that they have some positive changes to make, but just might need a little help focusing in on exactly who it is that they want to be, and/or how to be that person. We all want to be a better something. It's my job to help people do just that.
I am a huge fan of all genres of music and I have managed numerous bands over the past several years.
I've worked with many well known producers, writers, musicians and engineers and might possibly have some great contacts for the right client.
I'm seeking Bands/Musicians who are willing to be coached and willing to invest both the time and effort that it takes to enhance their lives.
I look forward to hearing back from you and partnering with you to bring out the potential that we all know is within us! You can become a fan, connect or follow me by going to any of the links below:
I'm also a screenwriter, an independent film producer and a band manager. I've spent the last 10 years helping to develop several companies with other Entrepreneurs, that were all eventually sold for a pleasant profit. Throughout those years, I always had a desire to create my own company geared more towards my own personal interests within the Entertainment Industry, specifically film and live music. In 2004 I started 4 of a Kind Productions, LLC in an effort to make that desire a reality. 4okp currently manages two bands.
The first band is Amfibian, which is fronted by Tom Marshall (lyricist for Phish) with Anthony Krizan (Spin Doctors, Lenny Kravitz) on lead guitar. Ever since Tom and Anthony got together it's a whole new ball game. Their 3rd and most anticipated album 'Skip The GoodByes' was released in 2007 on Relix Records.
The second band is an up and coming band called Karmic Juggernaut. The K-Juggs are 4 Truly Gifted Writers and Amazing Young Musicians, Voted "Asbury Parks Best Young Band 05, 06 and 07" You've got to see them to get it for yourself. Karmic members now attend Berklee School of Music in Boston, Massachusetts and the Jackie McLean Institute of Jazz in the Hartt School of Music, at the University of Hartford. While not in college they frequently headline at The Legendary Stone Pony, in Asbury Park, NJ and play in festivals throughout PA, NY, and NJ. Karmic has already been seen opening up for acts such as moe., Keller Williams, Gongzilla, Perpetual Groove, Lotus, The Breakfast, UMelt, and State Radio while playing throughout the Northeast. In my humble opinion Karmic Juggernaut is going to be the next Big Thing in Independent Jam Related Music and become a permanent fixture in the history of organic progressive rock. You heard it here first!
Both bands can be seen below. Check them out, you'll be glad you did.
I have been to hundreds of different concerts from a variety of different artists and genres. I love Live Music! Good Music is like Gold Mined from the Minds of Mankind.
On the film side of things. 4 of a Kind Productions is currently in preproduction of a screenplay that I wrote called Misc. Debris. From the very beginning, one of 4okp's major goals was to create a film. So I felt that I needed a film to create. I also wanted it to be something I could get behind 100%. I've always been fluent with my words, sense of humor, and ability to tell a story. I started writing Misc. Debris in January of 2005 and I believe that my final draft was completed in July of 2007. While the entertainment side of me wanted to write something that was funny and entertaining, the entrepreneurial side of me knew that I needed to come up with something that was easily marketable to an audience that I knew already existed. If you are a fan of the Jam Scene, YOU ARE GOING TO LOVE THIS FILM!! (If I do say so myself.)
My strengths are in business development, networking, persistence and creating a positive environment.
The rest you'll have to figure out from the info/pics on my page or just asking me. Thanks for stopping by. -RMS
