Suzannah's Intern Blog Post
What do you want to get out of this internship?
I am so excited about this internship because it is my first encounter with artist management. I am not necessarily creative but I have known that I wanted to work with artists ever since I can remember. I hope to work hard and make as many connections as I can!
What do you love to do? Hobbies? Activities?
All of these answers are going to make me sound like a grandma but I love knitting. I am currently working on a blanket for my dad’s birthday! I also love hanging out with/ having photoshoots with my cat Creature. My second love behind music is movies. I go to the movies more than I would like to admit. Above knitting, my cat, and movies is live music. If I’m not at the movies I’m at a live show.
If you could eat one thing for the rest of your life what would it be?
SAMOSAS!!! I love Indian food and most of my paycheck goes to Indian take out.
Favorite musicians, artists, genres, equipment, shows you’ve been to...tell us anything you love about music.
My love for music begins and ends at Bonnaroo. I loved live music before I attended the festival but it took my love to new heights. This year will be my seventh year! My mom always comes with me and together we’ve seen Elton John, Paul McCartney, Lionel Richie, Pearl Jam, Sheryl Crow, The Killers, Chance the Rapper, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Dead & co., Billy Joel, Kanye West, Jack White, Tom Petty, and many more.
Other very important music facts about me:
First concert: Jonas Brothers
Favorite concert: Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats at the Ryman
Current album on repeat: Dirty Computer - Janelle Monae
Why did you choose to intern here?
I found Olivia Management because of the artists! I searched Secret Sisters management and found this company. My interview opened my eyes to a place where women work together to help artists achieve their dreams. After my interview I knew I had to intern here!
What is your favorite part about Nashville?
I know saying live music is the most predictable answer ever but I have to say live music. I’m from Rome, Georgia where practically no artists perform. The closest musical city is Atlanta which is two hours away. I recall many school nights driving back from Atlanta or even Nashville for a concert. I also enjoy all of the other art forms Nashville has to offer. Practically every movie is shown in at least one of the theaters around town. I have also been to several great art and photography installations!
What do you want to be when you grow up?
A tour manager! I love the thought of creating a family on the road and witnessing live music every night.
