Ali Isabella and the final chapter to my wonderful trip!
Waking up Wednesday morning was not easy - I needed an extra large Mocha just to get me moving! The first thing on my schedule was to meet with one of Jimmy Buffet's consultants, Tinti Moffat. She gave me some great career advice and we talked a lot about networking tips for Nashville as well as venues I should be playing at.
After meeting with Tinti, we headed over to this amazing Italian restaurant to see David Preston and do some carbo-loading ;) David works for BMI and has given me lots of insightful advice over the past year. I always love meeting with him because we somehow manage to fit in some fun talk about horses as well-it is Nashville after all! I spent the rest of the afternoon at Music Row with Marty Dodson. Intense writing session about my song SOMEDAY. Love thinking about the future and the song really captures all that I'm excited about.
We finished the night with another big meal and some NHL Hockey - I was rooting for the Predators of course ;)
I spent the majority of Thursday morning catching up on my homework and SAT prep work . . . borrrrrring! I just can't wait for the test to be over, it can be pretty overwhelming trying to study for that, do all my regular school work, and then focus on my music as well . . . #HighSchoolProblems
At night I had a writing session with Robert Haas and Kristin Massey and then we headed over to Cantina Laredo for a big mexican feast! YUM! I love being with Robert and Kristin because they tell me all about their amazing and successful careers. It's so interesting to see all the different possibilities that are out there for musicians!
I woke up Friday morning sad - I really hate leaving this city :( After we said goodbye to Paul and Ed, and packed up the rental car, we drove out to Brentwood to meet with Josh and Nichole Witt. (What a beautiful drive-so many farms and horses!) Writing with the two of them was so fun. Josh always has a way to keep things interesting, which makes the time go by so quickly! We wrote a lot and laughed a lot-my favorite combo! Once that was over, I met with Billy Livsey at his studio-talk about GOLD records, they're all over his walls!! So amazing!! We ran out of time during our writing session so we're going to finish on Skype.
Saying bye to Nashville is always hard. I feel like part of me is always there though, and the inspiration I get for my songs is definitely carried with me back to New York, so I guess that's good! I'm just so grateful for everyone that I've been lucky enough to meet and work with down there, it's seriously been a dream come true!
Until next time Nashville . . .
<3 Ali Isabella
