Founder and CEO
PR Director, New York
Multi-instrumentalist and music enthusiast Kelly Kathleen has a passion for discovering new talent.
After spending years exploring the world and seasoning herself as a guitarist, she moved to Los Angeles to acquire a degree in music. Apart from writing and performing, Kelly also plays an essential role empowering girls through music education at Rock n Roll Camp for Girls, a self esteem and leadership based camp in downtown Los Angeles. In addition to her performance and musical philanthropy, her affection for sharing music she believes in has also lead her to becoming a published music writer, radio host and touring vinyl DJ. Kellys industry ties and experience in the music business allow her to bring authentic connections to earnest artists ready to make the departure from talk to action.
Born and raised in the Bluegrass state, Katie found a love for string music on the banks of the Ohio River.

A recognized community leader and business professional – named on the of the Greater Owensboro Chamber of Commerce’s “Top 40 Under 40” – Katie now brings her talents to The Press House’s Nashville office.
As a publicist, Julia Ryan credits her ability to keep things running smoothly to a constant flow of coffee and an embarrassingly meticulous daily planner. This Philly-raised New Yorker also draws from...
While she was in college, Julia completed four different internships that ignited her love of PR and confirmed that this was the career path she was meant to pursue. After graduating from Hofstra University with a double major in Public Relations and Psychology, Julia got her start in the industry at Rock Ridge Music and then continued on to positions at Press Here Publicity and Blue Note Entertainment Group.
She believes the key to successful PR is genuine passion; she’s forever in awe of incredible musicianship and it is this love of music that drives her to work extremely hard on every project she takes on.
Although she’s not musically-inclined herself, Julia’s lifelong infatuation with music is a defining part of her personality. An unapologetic fan of jam music, she is often forbidden from controlling the aux cord on long car rides due to her tendency to play 20+ minute live tracks. Outside of music, she loves yoga and True Crime (separately, of course).
