Its publishing catalog includes historic pieces written and performed by greats like Joni Mitchell, Billy Strayhorn, Hoagy Carmichael, and John Denver; the contemporary-classic catalogs of Sheryl Crow and Alabama; and current award-winning hits performed by the likes of Lady Gaga, Camila Cabello, Bruno Mars, Cardi B and more. The company’s roster of active writers and producers includes the award-winning Ali Tamposi and Jamie Hartman, plus popular performing artists 2 Chainz, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, and Migos’ Offset.
Reservoir’s collection of film music includes rights to scores created by award-winning composer-producer Hans Zimmer, as heard in the motion pictures The Lion King, the Pirates of the Caribbean series, Gladiator, The Dark Knight Trilogy, and over 150 other titles.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE:
You must be an NSAI Member to fully participate in pitch / feedback workshops.
Bring an MP3 version of your song that you can easily play from your phone, along with two lyric sheets for the song you chose. (Cassette tapes will not be accepted.)
*Members are more than welcome to attend and simply observe the event even if they do not want to submit a song for pitch!
We will play the first verse and first chorus of each song and the guest will "pass" or "take a copy".
Up to 50 members can participate and will be played in order of arrival - Members traveling greater than 75 miles or 2 hours from Davidson County will be given priority to participate*.
If you arrive earlier than 5:15pm, please join the line on our covered porch on the Roy Acuff side of building. Once doors open you will sign in and submit your lyrics sheets of the song you chose, to the receptionist for the event.
*ATTENTION OUT-OF-TOWN MEMBERS:
Members traveling greater than 75 miles or 2 hours from Davidson County are considered "out-of-town". You must be in the Priority Line prior to the time that doors open at 5:15pm. If you arrive after 5:15pm, you will be asked to join the end of the "Nashville/Local Line". At that point, there is no guarantee that you will be able to participate.
*NSAI does not require you to wear a mask, but we encourage you to do what feels most comfortable.
*If you are unable to attend this workshop in person, please note that it will NOT be re-distributed for later viewing.
NSAI non-members are permitted to observe two workshops prior to joining to experience what NSAI is about. If you have attended more than two workshops as a non-member, you will be asked to join NSAI as a member to fully benefit from membership and attend future events.
Limited parking will be available in the NSAI parking lot.
Additional parking is available on the street and in neighboring paid lots.
