Shelby Kennedy, TuneCore vice president of executive relations, brought in Chris Oglesby of BMG/Chrysalis, Carnival Music GM Courtney Gregg and publisher/artist manager Scott Gunter to MTSU’s Bragg Mass Communication Building for a recent workshop for students. The “New Artist Consultation” workshop inspired the school’s singers, songwriters, musicians and future executives.

“With MTSU having so much talent on campus and TuneCore’s passion to educate, equip and empower today’s recording artists and songwriters, I wanted to take the opportunity to assemble generous professional executives to provide industry expertise and feedback for the university’s artists in development,” Kennedy said. “The exchange was personal in addressing the specific concerns and questions of each artist that often go unanswered. It was a special event where executives shared information as ‘catalysts’ more than ‘gatekeepers.’”
