Some Background Information

About John.

With a career spanning forty years, John knows how to draw the best out of songwriters, artists, team members, and the people around him. For John, helping people break free from their self-imposed boundaries comes naturally, flowing from his own life’s struggles as he’s learned to survive and thrive throughout each decade of his highly creative life.

As the former Vice-President of Publishing for Star Song Media and former Director of Song Development & Copyright for Integrity Media, both in Nashville, John has directed the writing, production, and release of hundreds of musical products. At one time managing eighteen full-time songwriters and over twenty employees, his friendly and outgoing nature made him a popular leader and mentor who sought to accentuate the talents of others above his own.

Most recently, John has founded and established a six-figure coaching company called Nashville Christian Songwriters (nashvillechristiansongwriters.com) that serves thousands of songwriters worldwide with faith-based coaching resources and experiences. His popular podcast “Song Revolution with John Chisum ” hosts well-known artists and behind-the-scenes music business personalities. The show currently has over 160 episodes and has garnered over 155,000 downloads and counting.

Along with his music initiatives, John has launched a personal brand at johnchisum.com that includes a second podcast called “All the Best with John Chisum” featuring guests of many beliefs (or none at all) in an effort to have a more balanced and broad-based discussion around the issues that we face in the world.

Facing a dramatic life transition that drove him into depression and apathy in 2014, John employed his own creativity to rebuild his life and learn to serve others more fully through his coaching, music, and businesses. Forged in the crucible of this breakdown is a deeper faith and more wisdom to face the inevitable downturns of life. John coaches from these depths to help his clients find all the best in their lives again.

John’s personal mission is love and empower as many others as possible to live their best lives through his writing, speaking, coaching, and resources.
