Behind the Music with Melissa Ellis

In this episode: 
What do you think should be the first major goal or objective of an up-and-coming artist? We can only eat the elephant one bite at a time, so what are the first bites? As someone that’s consistently found a way to turn their creative talents into business opportunities, what’s your advice to musicians and other creatives on finding scalable, financially responsible ways to grow as an artist without burning out? As Nashville continues to get more expensive and harder to navigate for musicians and songwriters, do you think there’s a new opportunity in the Upper Cumberland? What can we do as a community to capture and nurture this talent?
