SUSAN HUBBARD, Editor/writer
Susan, a self-described life-long band nerd and strong advocate for proper grammar, began her musical adventures at age 9 at a piano keyboard. While her heart told her to pursue music as a career, she decided that the world needed at least one more scientist; Susan then headed to North Carolina State University, where she spent most of her time in the music department. After graduation, she spent almost a whole year setting accidental fires in a chemistry lab, and decided to seek her fortune as an attorney. After graduating with a law degree from Texas A&M University School of Law, she started her law practice in Tennessee.
Susan read an article a while back that stuck with her; the first sentence was “Broadway might be more famous, but when it comes to Nashville’s new music scene, the epicenter is Eighth Avenue South.” She named this blog East of 8th because she loves independent and alternative rock, and is lucky enough to live a just a few minutes east of its southern soul.
When she’s not playing bass guitar, arguing with people in court, diagramming sentences, or scouring the digisphere for the newest and most exciting sounds to dazzle your ears, Susan is fervently helming Americana music site, Mother Church Pew (www.motherchurchpew.com), in Nashville.
