Lucky Bird Media, recognizing that journalism and the music industry are both in the midst of rapid restructuring, aims to personally assist artists in navigating this ever-evolving world. Lucky Bird also recognizes that art is instrumental in changing perceptions and shaping our culture, though many artists with important contributions are often not heard. The diverse experience of its partners will be used to amplify the voices, vision, and passion of musicians who might otherwise be overlooked. “Lucky Bird Media is, mainly, a music publicity company,” says co-founder Daniel Zephyr Cooper. “But more than that, it's a collection of people who love, care about, and cherish music and culture and the important impact it has on all of our lives.”
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 practice in Tennessee.
In 2013, Susan founded alternative music blog East of 8th, followed by Americana music blog Mother Church Pew in 2015, to scratch her creative itches. In keeping with the question “What don’t you do?” which she hears on a regular basis, Susan closed her law practice in 2017 to pursue a new career in public relations and artist management in Nashville.
