Derek Webb is one of Nashville's rare kind of triple threats: singer, songwriter and music industry executive. He's an award-winning artist and Founder/President of NoiseTrade, a “tribe-building platform for artists and authors." We're so proud and honored to feature him as this week's Mentor Monday. Check it out here.
Dan Vickrey is one of today's greatest guitarists. As the lead guitarist and background vocalist for the multi-platinum alternative rock band Counting Crows, Vickrey has been nominated for multiple awards, won a BMI Award for his songwriting and plays to sold-out crowds around the world. In fact, just a few weeks ago, he opened for The Boss himself. MCN is incredibly honored to pick his brain about being on the road, the band's rise to success and what it takes to become a rock star. Check it out here.
Christy Walker-Watkins is a top publicist on Music Row in Nashville, Tenn., and Music City Notes is honored to feature her as our Mentor Monday this week. Christy is the President of Publicity at AristoPR, and beyond being one of the most impressive, she also happens to be one of the nicest people in all of Nashville. Check out her story right here.
Kimberly Novosel is one of the most accomplished 30-somethings in Nashville, and Music City Notes is honored to chat with her for our Mentor Mondays series. Read about her journey to Nashville and her current job(s), which include co-owner in two businesses, book author and if you can believe it....more. Check it out here.
I am excited to announce a new weekly feature called Mentor Mondays! What is that?
I'm so glad you asked!
When I moved to Nashville years ago to intern for a publicity firm, I had no idea what to expect or even what was expected of me. There's no road map to becoming successful in the music industry, but I knew I wanted it more than anything. Far more important than the coffee fetched were the mentors I gained along the way. They were beacons of light who passionately love what they do. Game changers in their field who truly understand why music is so important to humanity as a whole. Also important to note-- they are highly successful business people.
I want to share insight from arguably some of the industry's most noteworthy people: advice, war stories, the state of the industry, what their positions entail. I grew up wanting to be many of the people I'll be sharing with you, and I can't wait for you to hear what they have to say.
It kicks off next Monday, June 20th, with a very special guest that has been highly influential in my life and career. See you there.
