What is your name?
Jana (Yana) Horvath
Why did you get into the music industry?
I have always loved music I think like most people, but I didn’t find the music industry it found me haha. I had decided to move to East Nashville after college, and knew some friends that lived and worked in Nashville. I emailed my resume to a friend that worked at Flood, Bumstead, McCready, and McCarthy, and accepted a job working on Julie Boos’ team in October 2014. This October I’ll be celebrating 2 years at Flood and as an East Nashvillian!

Buying my first home when I was 20.
What are you looking to learn from WMBA?
