Friends with Wisdom #4 - Dawn Michele: From Fireflight to Worship

On this episode, I’m joined by Dawn Michele of Grammy and Dove Award-nominated Christian rock band, Fireflight. We talk about how she became the lead singer of the band, as well as challenges she’s faced as a female artist. She also shares about her upcoming worship project.

In addition to her role in Fireflight, Michele served on staff as worship leader and led a women’s worship ministry at Sagebrush Church in Albuquerque, NM before recently returning to Nashville with her husband, Matt Lott (House of Heroes, Wavorly), and their 3-year-old son.

Friends with Wisdom #3 - Ellie Holcomb: Creation Songs

This week I’m joined by renowned singer/songwriter Ellie Holcomb. We talk about getting counseling as a Christian, how she began songwriting, the demands of life, and some exciting new things Ellie’s been working on.

Singer/Songwriter Ellie Holcomb, a Nashville native, began her musical career by touring the country with her husband in Drew Holcomb and The Neighbors. After eight years, and with the birth of their daughter, Ellie opted to step out of the role of heavy touring. From that space came her debut solo album, As Sure As the Sun, which charted at #1 on the iTunes Christian chart and helped deem Holcomb the “Best New Artist" at the 2014 Dove Awards. Since then, Holcomb has been walking an unexpected path, one of suffering and loss but also peace and joy. She has come to the edge of the rushing river of confusion and experienced a God who made a way where there seemed to be no way. And it is from that place—of finding God in the dark and unexpected—that Holcomb wrote and recorded Red Sea Road, released in January 2017. On September 2018 she released her first collection of children's music - Sing: Creation Songs. The seven songs found on Sing: Creation Songs were inspired by her debut children's book, Who Sang The First Song?, which will hit shelves on October 4 and is also a top-seller at Amazon prior to its release.

Sharing Marketing Insights on Full Circle Music Show

As I mentioned in a previous blog post, the Full Circle Music Show by Seth Mosley and X O'Connor is one of my favorite podcasts.

I was recently invited to be a guest on the podcast. It was a lot of fun getting a tour of their studio and then sitting down with them to talk about my journey of starting worship resources and self-learning marketing and owning a company. We also went live on Instagram, impromptu, during the interview and I got to answer questions about marketing from the live viewers.
