Music Mecca is a Nashville-based online music publication featuring artist interviews, release news, literary show recaps, and more. We are a small, independent team of writers and musicians.
A quick breakdown of the categories:
Interviews- We cast a fairly vast net with our in-depth interviews, typically working with Nashville-centric artists, but have gotten national and international artists involved too.
New Releases- These are more casual, rapid-fire interviews revolving around an upcoming or recent release. We’ll throw in some fun questions to learn more about the artist and hopefully catch them off guard (same with our 22 Questions interviews).
Nashville Nights- Show recaps. We’ll typically cover smaller to mid-sized shows. Fun, informative, and sometimes off-beat gonzo music journalism.
New Faces- Similar to our New Releases category, these hone in on upcoming artists in the beginning phases of their music career. Again primarily with a Nashville focus.
Features- These are a bit older from when we did generic articles on various different up and coming artists.
Music Mecca launched in 2017, and we’ve since become part of the local community, including Belmont University’s Internship Program, The Entrepreneur Center’s Advisory Program, and have worked with a number of music organizations and artists. We’ve held sponsored shows within the city, and there’s a chance you’ve come across some MM gear floating around town.
Our mission is to maintain a consistent stream of entertainment and information regarding both new and established artists. We want to shed a fun, interesting, and off-beat journalistic light on the vast music scene that makes up Nashville, the Music Mecca of our culture. If we can be a useful avenue for dedicated artists to get more eyes and ears on what they’re doing, we’ll feel accomplished. And with that, we hope to be a resource for fans to read about their favorite artists, and discover new ones.
We’re currently working on a web series called Nashville Deck Sessions, and recently released our pilot episode.
