About our panelists:

Moderator: Kerri Fox-Metoyer, Chief Entertainment Strategist, LAB Nashville

Panelist (Artist): Svrcina, Artist/Writer

Writing music for more than half her life, SVRCINA has gained the reputation of a prolific writer to music industry professionals. After signing her first publishing deal at the age of 13, writing nearly 500 songs, recording in countless studios, and traveling thousands of miles while working with dozens of experts, SVRCINA's already seen success that verifies she is living her purpose.

Having multiple collaborations with Built By Titan, Fancy Cars, Russ Macklin, No Mana and Sj, and promo sync placements with the ABC, CBS and CW networks for the shows "Containment" | "Forever" | "Quantico" | "American Crime” and “Wisdom of the Crowd”-- SVRCINA has proven she is ready to hang with the pro's. Partnering with manager Wendy Duffy of Resin8 Management, and publisher Kobalt Music, SVRCINA is elated to merge creativity with innovative strategy.

SVRCINA has grown and changed as any artist/writer and young person does. SVRCINA's goal is to create music that not only she connects with personally, but is culturally transcendent. Experimentation with sounds, mixtures of musical elements with cultural personality traits, influenced by faith and current events, SVRCINA is carving out a niche that music lovers around the world will embrace. Her strength wrapped in tenderness, distinctive vocals, and blend with cutting edge producers, SVRCINA is a sound that the heaven wants earth to hear!

Panelist (Music): Jordan Brooke Hamlin, Producer/Instrumentalist, Co-Owner of MOXE

Jordan Brooke Hamlin is a multi-instrumentalist, composer, engineer and music producer based in Nashville, TN. A lifelong advocate for Creatives, she co-owns and operates a 20 acre, 4000 SQ ft immersive studio called MOXE in Nashville, TN.

Her contributions both on stage and in studio have included collaborations with Brandi Carlile, Ruby Amanfu, Rachael Yamagata, Missy Higgins, Katie Herzig, Dar Williams and The Nashville Ballet.

Panelist (Film & TV): Wendy Duffy, CEO/Owner, RESIN8

Whether it was the first time she heard Michael Jackson’s Thriller album or the countless hours spent watching MTV, Wendy was bitten by the music bug at an early age and it has forged her path in life. Music is her reason for everything! After managing VO talent for almost 6 years in Los Angeles, Duffy decided to take her knowledge and contacts in VO management and apply it towards her first love; music. With a background in radio, publicity, marketing and promotions, Duffy saw an opportunity to partner with the artist and focus on brand initiatives and responsibility as the musicpreneur. "Building relationships and engagement in every area of business is becoming more and more important as a way to differentiate yourself in the marketplace---the music business is no different. There is a lot of talent out there and you need to focus on your brand, your engagement and what makes you stand out. Then, you need to really promote those findings,” explained Duffy.

This idea and passion is what forged Duffy to start Resin8 Management alongside iV Music Licensing, which Duffy launched in July 2013. In April 2016 she went solo and launched a licensing division at Resin8. She had already started building and growing talent awareness in partnering with artists to get music placed in advertising initiatives such as TV promo’s and Film Trailers while forging relationships with top companies such as Capitol Publishing, Secret Road, Peer Music, Kompass/Kobalt, NBC, CBS, ABC, FOX, MTV, Disney and VH1 to name a few. “With Resin 8, we use a strategic approach to marketing and connecting the dots. We identify the path and goals of the artists and then create strategic plans to move them towards that success” – says Duffy.

Duffy’s personable approach to marketing and strategy is unmatched, as building long lasting business relationships is always her first and most important priority.

Panelist (Radio): Kirstin Winquist, VP Programming/Host, Radio Margaritaville

Kirsten Winquist impacts millions of music fans every day as the friendly voice on Jimmy Buffett’s Radio Margaritaville as heard by 6 million listeners worldwide online and on SiriusXM Satellite Radio channel 24.

Kirsten’s job is to constantly re-create the soundtrack for her listeners to escape the day-to-day and transport them to a place where they feel a connection to wherever their “Margaritaville” may be.
