With Phase 1 of the Music Study project and report complete, the newly funded and exciting Phase 2 begins.
During Phase 1, Sound Diplomacy gathered perspectives and insights about the city and identified a series of key findings, that will help point further discussions on Macon’s music ecosystem in the right direction.
We are thrilled to continue working with Sound Diplomacy, to make impactful and significant lasting improvements to our city’s diverse and storied music ecosystem.

Caleb Brown has always had unique artistic talents; however, he never dreamed of pursuing fine art as a profession. He graduated from Mercer University where not only did he excel athletically as a member of Mercer’s Inaugural football team, he shined academically as a student in Mercer’s Pre-Physical Therapy program. However, in the final semester of his senior year, Caleb elected to pursue his lifelong talent, art, full time.
Despite an underwhelming experience in “Painting 101,” his art instructor, Eric O’Dell, exposed Caleb to the demanding but rewarding world of art-making and inspired the possibility of pursing art professionally. After researching numerous successful contemporary artists, Caleb had the validation he needed to take “artraprenuership” head on.Since beginning his journey, Caleb’s artwork has attracted several prominent collectors including a US President, Super Bowl MVPs, Grammy Award winners and platinum-selling recording artists. He’s presented at both TEDxSavannah in 2019 and TEDxMercer University in 2021.Whether its though original artwork, commissions, or keynote speeches, he uses his canvas of life to inspire others to work tirelessly towards painting the life they love.
