August 1-31 “Recommended” Songs Considered for P2P Luncheon.

Congratulations to the writers below who had songs recommended between August 1 and August 31 for consideration for our Publisher Luncheon. These were submitted to the Song Evaluation Service and were recommended by the NSAI Evaluators who reviewed them.

Bart, Jennifer and Shannon, along with Travis Carter (Warner/Chappell Music), Doug Johnson (songwriter and VP of A&R at Black River Records) and Lisa Johnson (Sweet Renegade Music) traveled to the Pacific Coast this past weekend for our LA/San Diego Chapter Event in Dana Point,CA. Doug and Bart both taught invaluable lessons and provided insight regarding craft, today’s market and how to stand out amongst the crowd. Travis, Doug and Lisa listened and gave constructive feedback to all attendees on one of their original songs during our afternoon Listening Session.

NSAI member, Kalsey Kulyk recently premiered the music video for her third single, "Rewind" and was featured in Country Weekly! The Canadian singer/songwriter will release her EP later this year. Congrats Kalsey on your success and happy #FeatureFriday !
