Artist, entrepreneur, and lobbyist Jamie Kent has forged a unique path of his own through the music industry over the last decade. He’s been called an “Artist You Need To Know” by Rolling Stone, and dubbed one of the “Most Fascinating People of 2020” by Nashville Lifestyles Magazine. As an artist, he has notched over a thousand shows under his belt, including concerts with icons ranging from Reba to Huey Lewis & The News. His last album “All American Mutt”, debuted at #16 on the Billboard Top Country Albums Chart, and his songs have been heard across network television in shows and commercials. Beyond his own music, Kent has emerged as a key voice advocating for and on behalf of the creative community in Tennessee. Through his company Band Ambassador Media Group, Kent serves as both a marketing strategist and registered lobbyist, bringing an approach to communications that is rooted in creativity, and uniquely his own. He has developed festival activations for Fortune 500 companies, brokered wide ranging endorsement deals, and most recently helped launch Musicians for a Smokefree Tennessee, a coalition of 80+ artists, businesses, and public health partners advocating for smokefree workplaces for TN musicians. As a consultant for the American Nonsmokers’ Rights Foundation, Kent and the ANRF team are constantly working to innovate advocacy, that in turn, impacts policy and improves public health.
