Vicki Applewhite | Mapping a Modern MS

Monday, August 29, 2016

Vicki Applewhite is the sole owner of Ocean Springs LIVE, a company that brings live music to Ocean Springs, Mississippi. Although Ocean Springs already has a thriving music scene, Vicki recognizes the need of helping artists to promote their performances, as well as bringing in outside musicians. With both of these forces at work, Ocean Springs is well on its way to achieving Vicki’s goal—being the live music capitol of the state.

“You have the power to tell your story and get it out there. And it’s critical that you know how to do it, that you try to do it. So, if I thought there was one thing that everybody in Mississippi who had a story to tell could do, it would be tell their story digitally… And in Mississippi, we have compelling content. ”-Vicki
