Directors Spotlight

Tina Farris


Tina Farris has spent the last two decades as tour manager for legends including the Roots, Chris Rock, Nicki Minaj, and Queen Latifah. Her career highlights include overseeing Lil Wayne’s America’s Most Wanted tour; guiding the Black Eyed Peas through 15 countries, 76 cities and 99 sold-out shows to gross more than $86 million; and producing and managing Chris Rock’s Total Blackout tour. Farris—a California native, bass player, and UCLA alumna—began her career as a high school teacher but switched gears to bet on herself and her first love, music, by accepting an offer to tour manage her favorite band, the Roots. She soon maturated into a go-to logistics and production ace for the Roots crew, several of the band’s collaborators (Jill Scott, Common, and Pharrell) and, subsequently, some of the world’s premier events (the Super Bowl, World Cup, and NBA All-Star Game). Farris has spent 20 years amassing a diverse clientele that includes D’Angelo, Maxwell, Lauryn Hill, the Internet, Syd, and Steve Lacy. As a woman who’s found success in a male-dominated industry, she is dedicated to empowering other women through Decades, her mentorship conference for women of all backgrounds and orientations. Recently, Tina has graduated from the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts MFA from the Peter Stark Producing Program.
