Two young twenty somethings leave their jobs at Interscope Records, hop in Toyota Camry (with a cat,) and make the drive from LA to Nashville to start a marketing company. They live in a one room apartment. They work from the red sofa in their “living room.” They have no Nashville clients for 24 months. And now they are the premier full service music marketing company in town, and have worked with the likes of Miranda Lambert, Luke Bryan, and Kelsea Ballerini to name a few.
Meet Marbaloo Marketing owner Faithe Dillman Parker and vice-president Julie Behr. (Oh and since this is the kind of company where folks hang out even after hours, Marbaloo’s Blakelee Land was with us as well—though podcast party foul, I didn’t have an extra mic for her.)
You’re gonna hear how Marbaloo started. The story of how Faithe almost threw up on Justin Timberlake (you’re welcome.) The challenges and advantages of being a woman entrepreneur in the music business. How Nashvile is like the Hunger Games. And some SUPER practical tips on how to better use social media to up your branding game….in other words Marbaloo’s take on what it means to live “this Nashville life.”
I hope you love this episode as much as I do. Huge thank you to Faithe, Julie, and Blakelee for sharing your stories.
