Pat Mitchell Worley has long been a force on the Memphis Made Music scene. From her early days working with local bands on the PR tip, going on to work for both the Blues and Memphis Music Foundations and owning her own community relations PR firm, Fanfare CR, she knows Memphis Music. It's really no surprise that she was recently appointed the new Executive Director of the Stax Music Academy after serving as Interim ED at the Academy whose mission is to nurture and present the next generation of great soul communicators. I caught up with Pat on last weekend's Memphis Made on her years of experience working in Memphis Music and her new chapter with SMA. I have to point out that she has been one of the most influential folks in my career working in Memphis Music and she has been the same for many others. I am proud to know this Memphis Music Emissary and look forward to seeing her accomplish her goals with the Academy. Check out my two-part Memphis Made interview below with Pat below and know that when it comes to the future of Memphis Music it's in very good hands with this modern day warrior of Memphis Music always fighting the good fight.
