Music industry veteran Tony Harnell hosted the first seminar of the 2012 season in the “Lift Up the Artist” series hosted by the Nashville Church of Scientology.
The Church of Scientology & Celebrity Centre Nashville opened its new seminar series with Tony Harnell presenting an inside look into lasting success in entertainment.
Harnell, a recording artist, songwriter and producer, is best known as front man for the Norwegian rock band TNT for 23 years. His presentation is the first of a series of seminars featuring well-known musicians and visual artists, many of whom will fly into Nashville from Hollywood to share their insights with local artists.
“When you elevate the artist, you uplift the entire community,” says Corinne Sullivan, president of the Nashville church. Sullivan says it is part of the mission of the Church of Scientology & Celebrity Centre Nashville is to help the artist, and that Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard “often wrote about the importance of the artist in society. The artist leads us into the future with vision and dreams.”

Rockliff shares his expertise in SEO, niche affiliate marketing and the dynamics of Internet social community building that has made him a regular contributor at marketing conferences.
