Just over a year ago, Nicole Conflenti set out to combine her passions of music and film. Inspired by the popular YouTube channel, the Mahogany Sessions, and Indy’s growing music community, the Catalyst Sessions were born. The channel consists of acoustic single session performances of emerging musicians around the state of Indiana. The channel’s mission is simple: “We believe music hits the hardest in its simplest form. That’s why we record artists live, raw, and unplugged. No microphones, no amps – just the music.” The concept is captivating and the talent is stunning. And it’s all conceptualized, filmed and produced by Conflenti, a full-time college student.
