company, OutWord Bound. Through OutWord Bound, Johnson has handled public
relations for a wide range of cutting-edge musicians, art galleries, fine
dining establishments and large special events such as the 2000 Next Music
Festival, a three-day pop/rock showcase for unsigned bands held in Nashville,

music for America Online’s Local Network, Digital City and music industry
news for MusicDish.

Professional Recording Services (NAPRS) since 1996 and has acted as a Vice
President for the organization since 1999. She also volunteers her time to
the annual Nashville Music Awards.

Communications, a full-service firm catering to the recording studio and
