My first concert was in a small field in my hometown. I remember watching in awe as I looked up at James Taylor on stage, while I was standing next to none other than Sir Paul McCartney… I was 13, and the high from that extraordinary musical moment never faded. That same year, I met an upcoming pop artist who helped me discover the magic that came from combining my love for music with the love for creating connections that help others rise. Growing from my experiences, I started a little music blog in my bedroom in 2013. Originally establishing roots alternative rock world, that “little” blog took me on an epic journey.
I have an overwhelming desire to help real artists tell real stories, and to share music that has wild depth and meaning. I wanted to share music that would make a real difference in people’s lives. At the end of the day, if I can connect one artist with one person who loves their song or is inspired by their story, then I will be content that we’re doing something right. @HeyCourtland

My career is something I sort of “fell into” – feet first. I started working on the marketing street team of an artist when I was 14, opening me up to being really driven and curious about the marketing world. In college I studied graphic design and completed various marketing internships. I moved to Nashville in 2018 to further pursue my passion of music, story telling, and art. @JennCrim
