ROCKNPOD was started in 2017 as a gathering of music podcasters, artists, fans, and vendors to celebrate the music they love. It quickly became a great event for networking, connections, and fellowship among like-minded people. The ROCKNPOD Expo will be taking place in April of 2023. In the meantime, we welcome podcasters and content creators of ALL stripes to the ROCKNPOD Retreat in Nashville this July.

We’re excited to announce that Susan Hamilton will be a featured speaker at the upcoming ROCKNPOD Retreat on July 23rd in Nashville! Susan, a self-described life-long band nerd and strong advocate for proper grammar, began her musical adventures at age 9 at a piano keyboard.  While her heart told her to pursue music as a career, she decided that the world needed at least one more scientist;  Susan then headed to North Carolina State University, where she spent most of her time in the music department.  After graduation, she spent almost a whole year setting accidental fires in a chemistry lab and decided to seek her fortune as an attorney.  After graduating with a law degree from Texas A&M University School of Law, she started her practice in Tennessee. In 2013, Susan founded a music blog, and in 2015 founded another (because one just wasn’t enough) to scratch her creative itches. In keeping with the question “What don’t you do?” which she hears on a regular basis, Susan closed her law practice in 2017 to pursue a new career in public relations in Nashville. She currently heads up the Nashville office as a Communications Director/Senior Publicist for Los Angeles-based PR firm Sideways Media, where she helps artists tell their stories. She regularly deletes important apps on her iPhone to make room for more podcast downloads. See details below on Susan’s session and be sure to register for the ROCKNPOD Retreat HERE!
