Conway hailing from St. Louis 


Conway stole the show last night at The Echo and by stole I mean she commanded the room the minute she set foot onstage.  Cant say the same for the headliner.  Mid-way through her set she revealed she was St. Louis born while sporting a public enemy shirt.  She is no doubt a star and I suspect we will be hearing lots more about her in the future.

Motivational Edge - Allapattah Music & Literary Center 

Over at the Motivational Edge I was fortunate to get to know a fantastic group of insanely talented young adults!  All who are in the good hands of "Cold Medina" 1/2 of Cold Vision  (playlist below) who spends a good amount of time developing and producing the talents at the center, also known as Irie Foundation as of recent partnership.  Spent a good amount of time hearing all the works from the talented bunch and anyone would easily blown away!   I look forward to sharing their tracks here as soon as they are ready to be shared with the world!  No doubt about it there is a limitless amount of ambition that will carry the group into all kinds of successes of their own.  Thank you for the invite "SanCrisabel" who is also insanely talented and is the Director at the Center!

about the author

Grew up in Old Orchard Beach, Maine. Decided to leave college after a few semesters and somehow ended up in Miami, with maybe 30$ in my pocket.  How I ended up where I am today is novel/movie material; see phrase "only hustlers relate".  By day I use to be a paralegal, by night a concert goer/band manager/music business hand holder.

Managing and developing artists happened by accident as I intertwined myself into the growing underground music culture of Miami.  Later enrolled with Berklee's artist management program to expand on my instinct and fluff up my resume with reinforced wisdom from first hand music industry professionals.  

Got introduced to my now mentor
Steve Rennie of RenmanMB courtesy of my biggest supporter and Berklee professor Chandler Coyle of Music Geek Services, and well the flood gates opened.  Im now living in Los Angeles with my husband and lovely cats, will have to drum up a corny christmas photo op with my unenthusiastic bunch.    Be sure to sign up to The Coyle Report and make it a priority to get involved with the Renman MB community if you are truly passionate about getting into this biz.

  • St. Louis born @conwaymusic paying tribute last night.  Not many artists command the stage like other music legends as she did last night. Never heard of her and glad I caught the show. I suspect word of mouth to spread like rapid fire.  Sooooo check her out. Fans of The Sounds, Juliette Lewis, Blondie...
