Where it all began...
Stephen Linn, Founder of AmpliFLY Entertainment
Before launching AmpliFLY Entertainment, Stephen Linn served as SVP of Broken Bow Records’ artist management company and, prior to that, as Sr. Director of Music Programming and Promotion at CMT/MTV Networks. It was during this time that the idea for AmpliFLY Entertainment was born.
Working closely with artists, labels, and management, Stephen felt new and developing artists weren’t getting the overall business, brand, and marketing development they needed to have the tools to build a sustainable career doing what they loved - regardless of whether they had a record deal or a hit on the radio.
In addition to working with artists at AmpliFLY Entertainment, Stephen is a mentor and adviser at the Nashville Entrepreneur Center, working with music and entertainment startup companies. He has served as Entrepreneur In Residence for Project Music at the EC.
Prior to the music business, Stephen was an award-winning television reporter, host and author. He is also a frequent speaker at music, digital and media conferences across the country.
