About The Speaker

Cathy Hendrix

As native of South Louisiana, Cathy Hendrix began her career in the music industry as a college DJ at LSU. She worked in Baton Rouge under Johnny Palazzotto (management) and the legendary Chief Whalen (live music) before moving to Atlanta. There, she became the publicity and promotion director for the seminal punk / new wave live music venue, 688. Following the club’s closing, Cathy carried the name on through 688 Records, releasing the debut albums of Drivin’ n Cryin’ and Dash Rip Rock, among others. Relocating to New York, she worked for an entertainment attorney and at Arista Records. Returning to Atlanta, she launched Little Fish Platters and released the first solo album, Jet Black and Jealous, by Cowboy Mouth’s Paul Sanchez. After a short stint in Dallas and a break from the industry, Cathy landed in Nashville where she began working in artist management under Michael Dixon. As manager for Wesley Stace (aka John Wesley Harding) for 13 years and day-to-day manager for Ron Sexsmith for 19 years, the work as a liaison between the record labels, booking agents, publicists and the artists was the most fulfilling of Cathy’s time in the business. She also spent a good deal of time developing social media content and online profiles for these and other artists. Recently, health issues and presumed retirement brought Cathy back to South Louisiana to be near family. With her health on the upswing and retirement boring, she has continued to consult as a management associate with Michael Dixon and is looking for new opportunities to participate in the development of upcoming talent.
