Joanna Basile has gained experience in the private aviation, nightlife and mental health fields along the way, but always lands back in music. Out of the gate she managed a world-class recording studio in Chicago - while simultaneously studying film and broadcasting. Her creativity, communication and coordination has been utilized in various opportunities ever since. And whether developing artists or producing podcasts, she never backs down from a challenge. Basile’s tenacity and resilience was tested in the ring, as she was at one time a semi-pro Muay Thai fighter based in Las Vegas.
Basile has over 25 years of experience in helping brands and bands achieve success. She spent time as a regional manager at the Recording Academy, directed and marketed the Live Nation app and was a Sr. Director at ROAR. Her marketing mind has set her apart, as does her background in psychology. After earning a counseling certificate with distinction from UCLA, she started a successful private practice in the LA area. Basile was able to help creatives in a new and fulfilling way.
Basile continues anticipating the needs of creative and corporate clients alike. Former and current clients include but are not limited to The Smashing Pumpkins (digital management), Elizabeth Cook (project management) and the up-and-comer Emily Justin (management.) Basile herself can occasionally be heard on Nashville’s Lightning 100, and has written op-eds for the Tennessean.
In addition to working with artists and musicians, she currently manages key accounts for COACT, a bespoke marketing agency with a presence in Chicago and Nashville. Basile also produces and hosts Unrehearsed with Joanna Basile, a podcast dedicated to helping people, that much like her career, always has a music thread.
Basile hails from Chicago, lives in Nashville and misses the weather in LA.
