I'm Katherine Forbes, founder of Designing the Row (as in Music Row) and creator of Music Biz Besties. I came to Nashville the day after I graduated college because I wanted to be in the music business. Even though I knew no one and nothing about the industry, I was determined to make music my career.

I got my start in artist management and became obsessed with website and social media analytics and the obsession organically grew into freelance work. Now here I am eight years later running my own business designing websites for musicians and small businesses! My primary goal when working with clients is to help them create an online presence that they're not only proud of but that makes it effortless for them to bring in sales and clients of their own.


I created Music Biz Besties because I wanted a space to chat specifically about the music business but also because I love meeting and connecting other powerful women in the industry!
