Half Priced Hearts
February 2011 – August 2012
Shortly after entering the music scene, I got involved in various street teams to promote bands I had grown to love. I had been working on street teams for the past two years and had learned a lot about the best way to promote up and coming artists. With the help of my close friend and fellow Belmont Music Business student, Katie Choma, we launched a street team for the band and began devoting a great deal of time into developing the band’s fan base. This had been my first opportunity to be the team leader rather than a team member, so it was a great experience to get to apply my knowledge and experience to the promotion of a band worthy of success. I helped promote the band, assisted in the management of the band’s social networking accounts, planned opportunities for the band to engage with fans, and provided my personal insight and suggestions for artist promotion.
To Write Love On Nashville: A Night of Music, Hope, and Inspiration Benefitting TWLOHA
Event Planning Period: January 2011 – April 2011
Event Date: April 7, 2011
In April 2011, I planned my first live show, and I thought it would be wonderful to host a show that benefitted To Write Love On Her Arms, a non-profit organization providing aid to those suffering from depression, self-harm, and thoughts of suicide. I’ve become an avid supporter of the organization and really wanted to make a unique contribution. I also saw this show as an opportunity to showcase some of the wonderful local bands I have interacted with as a volunteer at Rocketown. I saw no better way to draw attention to the growing issue of suicide and depression than bringing together friends and family with music.
