NUVO - Members

Hello Members!

It’s Kevin McKinney, editor and publisher, here. I hope you enjoyed the Mother's Day weekend as much as I did.

We have a number of exclusives for you today which will be released later this week to the general readership. Please feel free to listen, read and comment and please share with others in your own network while suggesting they consider a membership.   

Dan Grossman has an opinion piece regarding Uber, as he does some Uber driving himself, and how it fits in the confusing puzzle of the gig economy. When, if ever, do you tip your Uber driver? Dan wants to know.

In addition to the exclusive content, Seth Johnson would like you to weigh in on a question he posed last week: "Is there a Midwest musician mentality?" You can share your thoughts in the comment section here or email Seth at

Please enjoy the exclusives below and I'll have an update on our redesign to share next week.

Best wishes,
