Are you a new NSAI member, and want to know where to start?

At this workshop, you will connect with NSAI's Membership Team: Jill Moody (Director of Membership), Lisa Vo (Member Representative), Amanda Flynn Phillips (Director of Chapters), and Emily Mack (Receptionist), as they dive into all of NSAI's services and educational resources.

Jill Moody brings more than 17 years experience in event production, management and booking to the team at NSAI. Formerly the Director of Programming at Analog at Hutton Hotel, Jill worked closely with NSAI and Tin Pan South on events, showcasing her passion for supporting Nashville's creative culture and artistic scene.

After receiving her certificate in Broadcast/Media Arts at Specs Howard School of Media Arts Jill went on to begin her career as a Lighting Director at the world-famous Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville, TN.  From there, she worked her way up the ranks from becoming Production Manager, where she created valuable relationships with various artists and bands throughout the country to her most recent position as Talent Buyer/Entertainment Manager for Wildhorse Saloon, where she strengthened those relationships and Wildhorse’s reputation as country music’s favorite place to play when visiting Nashville.  During her time at Wildhorse, Jill was honored as one of Nashville Business Journal’s 2016 Women in Music City which recognizes women who have helped to shape the music industry. 

At Hutton Hotel and Analog, Jill brought her vast experience to overseeing the programming and public event concepts for the hotel.  In 2019 and into early 2020 under her direction, Analog at Hutton hotel rapidly grew into Nashville’s hottest venue welcoming a wide array of acts from CVRCHES, Lee Brice to Cage the Elephant, Carly Pearce, Moon Taxi, Yola and many more. In addition, Jill further developed her relationship with the songwriting community as Analog became a beloved space for industry professionals and songwriters. 



Lisa Vo graduated from State University of New York, College at Oneonta, majoring in Music Industry with a minor in Business Communications. Her love for music began at an early age. What initially started as an interest in songwriting at fifteen quickly became a greater ambition for wanting to pursue the business side of the music industry. After moving to Nashville in 2016, Lisa accepted a position at the world-famous venue Wildhorse Saloon, where she has been an intricate part of the live music and hospitality industry as an Event Manager. Having been an NSAI member in the past, Lisa knows the member experience first-hand, so when the opportunity came along to join the team as a Member Representative, she jumped in and brought her knowledge of the music industry, customer service, and love of people right along with her.



Amanda Flynn Phillips was raised in the tiny truckstop town of Smiths Grove, Kentucky, and in her words "born a month too early and twenty years too late." Named after the Bob McDill penned classic "Amanda" (Waylon's version), her love for all things songwriting and Country Music began from the very beginning. 

Soon after moving to Nashville in 2008, Amanda signed her first publishing deal as a songwriter with Leslie Dipiero and Victoria Shaw. From there she had success with film and TV placements, several album cuts, and two singles with artist Katie Armiger ("Best Song Ever" and "So Long"). Amanda was also a co-writer on Chase Rice's song "Jack Daniels & Jesus" from Rice's "Ignite the Night" album that debuted at number one on the Billboard Top Country Albums. "Jack Daniels & Jesus" also went on to be the name of his headlining 2015 tour. 

Amanda went on to be a staff writer for Sony ATV and Wide Open Music Group. While at Wide Open, Amanda served a dual role as songwriter and Creative Director, discovering a new love for music on the business side of the music business. While there, Amanda began curating special networking events; such as "Hits & Giggles" and "Workin' Women's Wednesday." Embracing all creatives in town; combining new-to-town dreamers with seasoned Music Row veterans. 

She continued to showcase her unique ability to create community and nurture songwriters alongside roles with the historic Acme Feed & Seed and Grand Ole Opry. 

Her enthusiasm combined with her ‘grit and grace’ approach towards songs and the ones that write them have continued to launch her into what is proving to be a successful impact and career here in Music City. Through the years in an ever-changing city, one thing has always remained for Amanda; the songs are what drove her here and it's the songs that continue to drive her today... and what better place to land, than becoming the Director of Chapters with NSAI, where "it all begins with a song." 



Hailing from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, Emily first came to Nashville in September 2019 to attend the Josie Music Awards for her second time. During her visit, she spent some time walking the streets of Music Row thinking what it would feel like to come to work here every day. In June of 2020, in the midst of the pandemic, Emily packed up everything she owned and moved to Nashville to follow her dream and continue the pursuit of a career in music. Emily is a 6x Josie Music Award Nominee and a 5x Lehigh Valley Music Award nominee. Emily is beyond thrilled to be at NSAI and be a part of such an amazing organization that helps and strengthens the voices of songwriters of Nashville and beyond.
