Discover Sooner will host its Publisher Writer Experience interactive mentoring program with Jacee Badeaux, Creative Director at Big Yellow Dog Music.
Seeking to help the next generation of songwriters and artists expand their network of publishers and music professionals, the program is designed for songwriters and artists. Songwriters will meet one-on-one for three months with Badeaux, who advises commercially successful writers, including Meghan Trainor, Tenille Townes, Jessie James Decker and Logan Mize. He’s also secured cuts in country, dance/EDM and pop, including Gayle’s No. 1 song “abcdefu.”
In 2011, Badeaux appeared on season 10 of American Idol, where he made it to the top 40. He attended Belmont University and interned at Big Yellow Dog Music before serving on the administrative staff at APA. At Big Yellow Dog, he is responsible for writer management and song plugging, and assists in signing and developing artists for the company’s label.
“I am always looking for great songwriters and artist/writers in country, pop, dance and sync,” Badeaux shares. “We have many great sync writers, producer/writers and artist/writers. I’m looking forward to meeting all of the Discover Sooner writers as well!”
“We are so pleased to be working with Jacee!” notes Nancy Deckant, Founder and CEO of Discover Sooner. “He’s been an artist and understands the journey. His peers regard him up as one of the best songwriter mentors in Nashville and it’s easy to feel his enthusiasm. We are looking forward to a great program for all involved!”
