Ella Mae Bowen To Participate In Belmont Internship
January 11, 2013 at 2:35 PM (PT)
BIG MACHINE LABEL GROUP is teaming up with RED LIGHT MANAGEMENT and BELMONT UNIVERSITY in NASHVILLE to form a new band for Country artist ELLA MAE BOWEN.
BOWEN, who’s cover of “Holding Out For A Hero” was featured in the 2011 film “FOOTLOOSE,” will work with BELMONT students throughout the course of the semester. After an audition process, selected students will begin their internship by performing with ELLA MAE as she works out songs live, while preparing to record them in the studio.
“As I record on my debut album, I feel that this program will be a great way to work out arrangements with a live band. With an undeniable passion, BELMONT has always been a great source for up-and-coming musicians and I believe this internship will be mutually beneficial for everyone involved,” said ELLA MAE BOWEN.
Four students began their internship TODAY. They will be required to learn her music, attend scheduled rehearsals, and perform a show at the end of the semester. Throughout the experience, various touring musicians, producers, road managers, and booking agents will interact with the students as well. There will also be the possibility of joining ELLA MAE’s official band at the end of the course.
RED LIGHT MANAGEMENT’s TRACY GERSHON will supervise the internship. Reach out to TRACY at Tracy.Gershon@RedLightManagement.com.
