About Us

NoteWorthy Music | Illustrator Daniel Harris

NoteWorthy Music is a collaboration of two word nerds from the Ozarks. Each of us has a lifelong love affair with music. As writers, we are drawn to the song and deeply interested in the creation process. Our appreciation goes beyond this to gratitude and respect for all creators and enjoyers of music.

Based in Springfield, Missouri, NoteWorthy Music seeks to bring quality shows to the Ozarks through the Singer Songwriter Showcase Series. Additionally, our boutique agency offers services as booking agents, connecting local artists with venues in new markets, as well as creating mobile-friendly DPKs, press releases, and other promotional tools.

Here’s what some of our guests have to say about us:

I’ve recently done an interview for a very cool online journal honoring music and the creative process called NoteWorthy Music. My 20:20 Q&A will be presented March 5th, but you should totally check them out now and often as they have a diverse group of artists and writers featured, like they just featured Jerry Douglas and it’s a great interview! ~ Missy Raines, Grammy Nominee and 9-time International Bluegrass Music Association Bass Player of the Year

These are the best interview questions I can remember answering in a very long time, thank you so much! ~ Susan Anders, singer-songwriter and vocal coach who recently released her fourth solo album, 13 Women

I really appreciate you taking the time to ask such thoughtful questions. ~ Dan Friese, Somewhere Brighter, released May 21, 2021

Bambi Grinder

Bambi Grinder
is a shaper of words. She has written novels and short fiction, which she prefers, generally in first person present tense. She cultivates love and happiness with her husband, home, cats and fish. Her yard is a plethora of wildflowers, fruit vines and trees, a sanctuary for pollinators, amphibians, birds, and all manner of wild creatures. As owner of NoteWorthy Music, this is her first foray into the digital landscape.
