Who is Ed Brussa?
I am a graduate from Trevecca Nazarene University (Nashville, TN) with a BBA in Music Business and a Master’s in Education. I have been around music since I was a kid, and while my background is in Folk-Rock, Punk, and Alternative Rock, I am always willing to explore new sounds with my clients and my own projects (The Autumn League, Goodson & Brussa, Räbiez 4 Bäbiez!). In 2013, I created Stop-Go Recordings to provide outstanding service at accessible rates, serving a wide variety of musicians and organizations.
