Dianne Arvin | May 31, 2006

About:
Born and raised in Nashville, TN, Dianne felt that she was born with a desire and need to be an artist, and she started painting at the age of eight. As a young student, she was more interested in the pictures in the books and encyclopedias rather than the words, causing her to be a “late reader.” Dianne continued her love of art into college where she majored in Fine Arts with a focus on metalworking and jewelry making. After college, she continued painting but knew that there would not be much of an income in it, so she started working in sales for an engineering company started by her brother-in-law. She worked for the company for thirteen years. Then, as what happens to so many who are not doing what they love, she became burned out and quit her job to pursue happiness. She went back to school, met and married her husband, Reid, and started working in art therapy. Read more

Keith Mohr | May 24, 2006

keith mohrAbout:
In 1997, Keith saw the future of music, and it was then he created his independent online music promotion, marketing, distribution community called “Broken Records.” Starting with just 4 artists he produced at his studio in Central Pennsylvania, the site quickly grew to 800 members in just a few years. Providing free services helped Keith keep a steady stream of artists who came to his studio for production assistance. In 2002, Keith changed the name of his website to IndieHeaven, which better reflected his mission. Still going strong through .com busts and free social networking, Keith recently created a non-profit organization called the Christian Independent Alliance to further help core Indieheaven members with fund raising for their music missions. Keith also produces a conference in Franklin, TN where hundred of independent musicians from around the globe assemble to learn how to not be dependent. Read more
