Our Chief Marketing Officer Tami LaTrell was recently interviewed by our friends over at Sound Exchange about her big break into the music industry and the importance of protecting your music rights! Her story is phenomenal and so inspiring. Listen below:
What happens when one of your songs is picked up by a superstar before you’re even 20?
That’s exactly what happened to Tami LaTrell. She is a multi-platinum, Grammy-nominated songwriter with an unbelievable resume of work under her belt. She started out singing and performing with girl-groups in her teens, and when she was just 18 years old, one of her songs was picked up by Whitney Houston. That propelled her through college to an entrepreneurial life as a digital marketer, music industry educator, and songwriter.
She’s since worked with R&B superstars Monica and Keyshia Cole, as well as artists like Love and Theft and Chamillionaire. She has a youtube channel with hundreds of thousands of followers, and is currently an executive at “The LABZ” – a platform that helps artists manage their rights and protections of their work.
