Congratulations to the writers below who had songs recommended between July 1 and July 31 for consideration for our “Pitch to Publisher” luncheon. These songs came into the Song Evaluation Service and were recommended by the NSAI Evaluator who reviewed them.

NSAI staffers will review all songs recommended between May 1 and July 31 for consideration to be played at our August 2015 P2P luncheon. We will choose up to 15 songs and they will be played for our publisher and industry guests in August 2015.

Be sure to take a look at the hometowns of these great writers. Who knows… you may find your next co- writer. With NSAI members from all over the world, one of these folks might live just around the corner from you!
