We had the good fortune of connecting with Hillary Clinton and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Hillary, what led you to pursuing a creative path professionally?
I love art. Period. What a better position to be in than to help real artists get their art heard, seen, felt and experienced? This is why my path led to management and record label work. There’s nothing more important to me than being a part of spreading music and putting it out in the universe.
I started off at the beginning of my career working for promoters hopping from music festival to music festival and doing a ton of Artist Relations work, then moved into to touring, most notably with WWE and George Strait. This was my path that lead me to managing my first band, who I still manage, Lettuce.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I’m an Artist Manager and a Record Label Executive. On the artist management side, I dedicate my time and energy into furthering the artists’ brands and careers on every level. On the record label side, I manage multiple labels including: Regime Music Group, Suburban Noize Records, Americana Vibes, Liars Club, Pretty Wavvy, Island Empire and another in the works that I’m very excited to announce in the next few weeks.
The journey to where I am now did not occur overnight. Just like anything that’s worth something, you have to hustle. If I wasn’t a hustler, I wouldn’t be here. And the journey certainly isn’t over…not even close.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I’m from New Orleans. born and raised, so I’m ALL about eating, drinking and entertaining. I moved to Denver about 4 years ago. I lived in Aspen after Katrina for a bit, but outside of that, hadn’t spent too much time in Colorado. I love it here and don’t see myself leaving anytime soon. If I had a friend visiting, I would have to take them out to some of my favorite restaurants, which include: Temaki Den, Morin & Annette. We’d have to swing by Death & Co to grab a few drinks at some point in the trip too.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My success comes from the support of my peers and community. My first real music industry job was given to me by my dear friend Whitney Wangsgaard. I have to give a huge shoutout to Ivory Daniel and Kevin Zinger for investing and believing in me on a daily basis.
