Emily Mueller Olson moved to Nashville with a passion for songs and songwriters in the Summer of 2005 to attend Belmont University. Since then, she has seen the talents of hundreds of songwriters by attending rounds and showcases at Nashville’s popular venues, such as 3rd and Lindsley and The Bluebird Cafe. Her first taste of the business came when she was the first intern at Disney Music Publishing in 2007 and in 2008 at Tom-Leis Music, where she got hired on and worked with writer/artist Sarah Buxton, as well as catalog management for the company. “Working there with talented writers such as Sarah was the most amazing experience…the whole catalog was filled with little jewels and it was so fun discovering them…I was like a kid in a candy store every time I was there. I absolutely loved it and knew then that working with songs and songwriters was for sure what I was meant to do…it was definitely my passion.”

After two years there, she found herself working for Grammy award winning producer, Nathan Chapman. While working for him, she was the Production Assistant on almost a dozen major label projects, including Taylor Swift’s “Speak Now” album and The Band Perry’s debut album. He also gave her the chance of a lifetime when he realized her ear for songs and let her take meetings with publishers on behalf of him and serve as A&R Assistant on projects for Laura Bell Bundy and The McClymonts. “That was a dream come true…getting to work with songs!!! And it was just incredible to me how Nathan saw my talent and really trusted my ear. I’m so grateful to have worked for and learned from such a great and talented guy.” 

Emily went on to launch [listen + connect] creative in the Spring of 2012 and offered writer/producer/musician management, A&R, and consulting services. She then joined ole (now Anthem Entertainment) as Creative Director in October of 2013 and Still Working Music in March of 2018 where she worked with a roster of writers including Jon Randall, Tommy Lee James, and Gordie Sampson.

She has secured over 150 cuts for artists including Brett Young, Randy Houser, Sara Evans, Mickey Guyton, Justin Moore, Trisha Yearwood, Trace Adkins, and more.

 “All I really want is to be surrounded by great music and great people…get incredible songs floating around Nashville heard….and to help songwriters I really believe in get to where they want to be.”

In the Fall of 2022, Emily launched Dream 3 Publishing with respected industry executives Laurel Kittleson-Cobb and Greg Hill. The Dream 3 roster currently includes hit writer Ben Caver and rising writer/producer Jon Stark.
