The International Singer Songwriters Association is a not-for-profit association, founded by Tamanie Dove, a singer songwriter from Nashville, now residing in Atlanta who is dedicated to supporting and serving independent artists, and encouraging aspiring and professional songwriters in all genres of music worldwide.
Tamanie Dove grew up back stage at the Opry. Her mother, Carole Dove having worked at Tree Publishing, which later became Tree International and now Sony/Tree, took little Tamanie with her everywhere, including business meetings, performances and homes of some of the most notorious names in the music business.
Many years of loyal friendships with some of the most famous singers and songwriters in Nashville, the US and abroad, have been the most rewarding part of her newest conquest; beginning this new chapter to help others like her and assist those aspiring to achieve their dreams.
“Mama Dove’s” expertise in the music business on “the row” , having worked with greats like Buddy Killen, Curly Putnam, Jack Stapp, and with clients like Roger Miller, Randy Travis, Sawyer Brown, Little Texas, Dr. Hook, Faron Young, and many more, have proven to be such a blessing and a life lesson for Tamanie, and she believes in paying it forward, and does often.
Having written and recorded over a hundred songs in the last three years, with eight albums attributed, she’s showing no signs of slowing down. Her incredibly versatile and talented sound engineer and son, Matt Mercer and she have collaborated on most of her works that can be found on worldwide social media
Tamanie wants to help everyone,…all the time. From taking on this vision for a non-profit that can benefit all independent artists, to licensing its trademark and investing vast amounts of personal time and money into making sure there is fairness, integrity and professionalism.
