Welcome to the Jungle!

RockStar Leader Logo

Welcome to the jungle. Welcome to a new place called RockStar Leader.

The idea for the RockStar Leader group and blog came from a conversation with a talented keyboardist named Emerson St. Pierre who wanted to see his two passions of music and leadership talked about in a vibrant open forum. Emerson knows what he is talking about when it comes to these two topics. He was the recent winner of the Hard Rock Cafe’s nationwide search for talent in the Ambassadors of Rock Battle of the Bands contest in Summer 2009. Beating over 150 bands, the Atlanta, Georgia band named Rudy Vaughn won the Hard Rock Cafe contest and was flown to London, England to play at Hyde Park in the Hard Rock Calling with Bruce Springsteen, The Dave Matthews Band, The Killers, Neil Young, and more.

Facing the challenges with creative-types on that journey really prepared him to gear up for more challenges in cooperating with others in the creative music business. Since that experience in London, Emerson is honing his skills on the music scene and is continuing his lifelong passion of leadership effectiveness.

So, E, here is your blog. We call it the RockStar Leader.

The new blog called RockStar Leader is designed to engage people who are interested in the intersection of music and leadership. Here are some of the topics we will be covering:

A Different Drummer” has topics related to people who might just be a little off-beat. (But everyone is welcome…)

Leader of the Band” discusses issues related to being a leader of a musical group, orchestra, or worship team.

Music Genres” is a category for different types of music. Find your favorite beat here. Rock, pop, jazz, hip hop, and more…

Intersections” is our catch-all category for those topics that we just can’t seem to get back into their cage.

Decade” has subtopics, oddly enough called: 1960’s, 1970’s 1980,s, and so on…

And More!

One Response to “Welcome to the Jungle!”

  1. Hi Tom,

    Great idea. I’ve been working with the jazz ensemble as a model of “leadership in the liminal zone”, so to speak, for over a decade. It’s all about synthesizing leadership and support in order to enhance and grow the potential of what exists without getting pulled into the gravity of past success.
