WHO KNEW returns on November 20 with one of the coolest and most unique offerings in the series’ 5 year history. That night, we will be presenting “Moguls in the Making” which is a celebration of extraordinary music executives under the age of 30.

If you have followed WHO KNEW in the past, you know we love to feature speakers who are doing exceptional work in the music industry. Sometimes those people may be quite famous already; others maybe not so much. But what we always do is select people who deserve special recognition and a spotlight shown upon them.

For this very special event, we have selected a lineup of very talented young music execs who are building companies that have achieved major success already and have a very bright future with big-time upside.

Check out this lineup of Moguls in the Making:

 

Liz Rogers- Founder and CEO of Anacrusis
Tommy Stalknect- Founder & CEO of Single
Travis Terrell- Founder & co-CEO of Soundstripe
Joseph Cabey – A&R at United Masters; Taylor Bennett’s Manager
Lindsey Conlin- Director of Global Business Development at EXACTUALS
Ayla Kress- Co-founder of Brain Candy Management
Michael Dorf – Founder of City Winery
EMCEE- Channing Moreland and Makenzie Stokel Co-Founders of EVAmore

 

Also that night, we are celebrating a true mogul- Michael Dorf, the founder of City Winery. Michael will deliver his own WHO KNEW talk and will be signing copies of his new new book- Indulging Your Senses: Scaling Intimacy in a Digital World.

Like all WHO KNEW events, we will be giving away some great swag and pouring free samples of Four Roses Bourbon.


An extension of MusicRowSearch, WHO KNEW Nashville is a bi-monthly event designed to provide unique perspectives from many of the music industry’s most accomplished executives and brightest minds. Think “Shark Tank” + TED Talks + speed dating. It’s the next generation of Meet Up. The event serves as a fertile hunting ground for talent, trends and who’s making it happen. Everyone who attends gets a birds’ eye view of who’s new and who’s next.

“WHO KNEW Nashville is an event series inspired by my mission to connect people. Nashville is one and half degrees of separation. I kept meeting and seeing the incredible wealth of knowledge, experience and talent and thought ‘How do I get all of these people in one room?’

That’s how WHO KNEW started. Beginning in 2015, our sold out events feature the most innovative minds, anarchists, entrepreneurs and trend setters in the music industry. Each event highlights a topic that’s real and right now.  Real conversations. Real connections.”
