Music Industry Educational Program Segue 61 Launches In Nashville
Former BMI and Sony executive Clay Bradley, guitarist Guthrie Trapp, and drummer Pete Abbott will mentor aspiring musicians, producers, and music industry members as part of the newly-launched Segue 61, a certificate program offered by Catawba College in Nashville. The eight-month program will begin Jan. 7, and will include an inaugural class of 18 members. Segue 61 aims to provide graduates with the real-world working experience industry employers are seeking.
Bradley is currently a co-partner with Third Generation management agency, which represents Muddy Magnolias; Trapp’s credits include support for Garth Brooks, Alison Krauss, Jerry Douglas and Sam Bush; drummer Pete Abbott is currently touring with Ashley Monroe.
“Segue 61’s purpose is grounded in same vision from which my grandfather’s greatest musical successes were born,” says Bradley, the grandson of Owen Bradley, and leader of Segue 61’s music business interests. “Owen Bradley and Chet Atkins had a clear, but very different idea of how to deliver what was then country music to a broader consumer base. They had a new way of looking at a traditional model. They followed their vision and changed American music forever.”
