People of the Underground
As a lifelong music industry junky born and raised in the redwoods of Northern California, I’m no stranger to getting my hands dirty, and my favorite way to do that is behind the scenes. I planned my first internationally attended music festival at the age of 15, and that event lit a spark in me. Since then, I have continued my quest to get as involved as possible, wherever possible, in the music scene. With a background in hospitality, events, and tourism management, and as a constant student of the ever-evolving music industry, I am a planner at heart, and currently invest my time helping independent artists manage their vision and career.
Working with Underground Music Collective is a perfectly natural extension to tha, and a very warm welcome into the Nashville musical community, which I joined in April 2020.
Wisconsinite born and raised, Van Isaacson left the cold northern woods for cold Chicago streets. He received a degree in Contemporary, Urban and Popular Music from Columbia College Chicago, and has recently relocated to Nashville.
As a songwriter and artist himself, Van has a deep fascination in the stories that songs stand upon and the poetic vessels that deliver them. When he’s not writing better reviews than Gerard, he can be found playing his fiddle for the local grizzly population around a raging campfire.
