YOUR MUSIC CITY MENTOR!
Jacy Dawn Valeras
I AM A SONGWRITER, SINGER, YOUTUBE CREATOR, PODCASTER & THE FOUNDER & CEO OF PLATINUM CIRCLE MEDIA.
I was only 13 when I started writing songs and singing at local events in my hometown of Chelmsford, Massachusetts. At 16, I was honored to sing for President Bill Clinton. By the time I was 19, I had my own band and a crazy performing schedule, opening for country music legends like Reba and Willie and playing on stages like Madison Square Garden, the iconic Bluebird Café and the Texas Troubadour Theatre.
I knew that if I wanted to take my career to the next level, I had to have a strong social media presence, a strategic marketing plan, album art, a website, and so much more. I searched endlessly for someone to guide me and to help create the assets that I knew I had to have. I came up empty, so I figured it out myself. Before I knew it, I was helping artists in Music City and beyond to make their dreams come true.
It’s always been about the music. I guess you could say, I speak the language of artists. Grammy, CMA, ACM, JUNO Award winners and Country Music Hall of Famers have become my clients and my friends.
They say: When God closes a door, he opens a window and that is what happened to me. I am now able to pass along what I know to young artists who are thinking about packing their bags and heading to Nashville. Thanks to my collaboration with legendary broadcaster & master interviewer Candy O’Terry, I’m able to provide my advice to artists and anyone interested in the music business through our new podcast series Country Music Success Stories.
