A passion for music star1star2 Discovering fresh talent

about mlm

To be good at anything you have to love what you do. I’ve always had a passion for music and I’ve always loved discovering fresh talent. To me, there’s nothing quite as thrilling as telling friends about a musician for the very first time.

When I started Momentary Love Management in 2005, I knew the focus of the company should reflect the true nature of why I got in the business in the first place—connecting artists with the opportunities that they deserve.

Working in conjunction with concert promoters, event directors and label A&R folks like you, Momentary Love specializes in helping musicians to create and establish a plan for success. Musicians like Austin-based Beaver Nelson—a critically acclaimed singer/songwriter I’m proud to represent and call a friend; Carrie Ann Carroll…the Jersey girl who now makes Austin her home who is finding success with her first full length release “You Should Know”.

Through open communication, strong working relationships and listening –traits I developed over the years as a Human Resources professional—my role is to bring together the people and places that correspond with the goals and expectations of the performer.

We love partnering with planners who are creative and think outside the box. Whether you come to us with a vision or want us to dream up something totally unique, Momentary Love can make it happen!

lou DeMarco loves music and the people that make it. He is smart, genuine and full of compassion. Good things happen when he is in your corner.CARRIE ANN CARROLL, SINGER SONGWRITER

It is with great pleasure that MLM announces a new relationship with “Nellie Clay”. Recently, lou DeMarco of Momentary Love Management became the manager of Nellie Clay.

Born in Oklahoma, and previously a visual artist working at The Museum of Russian Art in Minneapolis, and prior to moving to Nashville 2 years ago, Nellie spent the last eight years living in Alaska – much of that time, in small rustic cabins without utilities. Nellie credits the solitude and tragedies that accompany life in The Last Frontier with her musical rebirth and subsequent song material – enough to last ten lifetimes.

Acting on a gut feeling and the encouragement of her extended folk family, Clay moved to Nashville. The singer/songwriter wasted no time putting a band together and has played favorite local venues including The Bluebird Cafe, The 5 Spot, and The City Winery. Her latest CD Never Did What I Shoulda Done was critically acclaimed by Elmore Magazine and No Depression.

Scott Zuppardo of No Depression: “Clay writes songs truer than a Cherokee bloodline, all for the world to hear, sans fear of judgement or coloring within the lines of pre-conceived notions.”

As the Americana Music Association conference in Nashville nears it is a great time to catch all of you up on some client news…

Wild Ponies are in the midst of completing their follow up to the very successful “Things That Used To Shine”. Recording in early August in East Nashville, Doug and Telisha are now adding the finishing touches on what will certainly be a great successor to Shine. The hope is to release early next year as the band prepares for the festival season with high hopes. You can be a part of this great project by being a donor and in return getting a copy of the “Acoustic Demo’s”. There are still some left and to get all the details go to wildponies.net.

Beaver Nelson is also in the studios getting started on his first release since Macro/Micro in 2012. With long time buddy Scrappy Jud Newcomb at the controls and playing lead we are very hopeful to have the next release ready for spring of 2016. Beaver and the band were in Marfa Texas in early August to lay down the tracks…..vocals and additional instrumentation will be added later this month. All indications are that the project is going great with both Beaver and Scrappy very happy with early results. I was able to spend the first few days in the studio and I can tell you….this will be worth the wait Beaver fans!! To help with the cost of production Beaver is also planning on a package of “special material” for those who want to help with the release….but more on that in a few weeks.

Hilary Scott just returned to St. Louis after a very successful East Coast run and is now getting ready to hit the great Northwest. She made it back to St. Louis in time to receive the Rural Roots Music Commission award for “Vintage Folk CD of the Year” for her last release “Freight Train Love” which as you can imagine is very proud of.

Rob Robinson is also staying very busy writing new material for his first full length CD for the coming year. He continues to tour up and down the East Coast and is thrilled with the receptions he has received of late. A very large crowd came out to World Café Live (Philly) in early August to see Rob and his band play a great set before Rob the former World Champion Snare Drummer sat in on traps with Dan Montgomery and his band.

Carrie Ann Carroll has also been writing as she contemplates next steps after her very successful release in 2014 of “You Should Know”. She has also been seen playing around town in Austin of recent……a very good sign of things to come.

Dad’s Hat Rye is also prepping for our first film night with “An Evening With The Dude”!
