NSAI visits Milwaukee, WI for all-day workshop


Error message

Holiday Closing: NSAI will be closed Friday May 24 through May 27 in observation of Memorial Day. We will re-open on Tuesday. Have a safe holiday weekend!

NSAI Staff members-Bart, Trina and Leah, along with Chelsea Kent (Still Working Music), Doug Johnson (songwriter and VP of A&R at Black River Records) and Lisa Johnson (Sweet Renegade Music) traveled from Nashville to Wisconsin this past weekend for our Milwaukee Workshop that featured two lessons and a publisher feedback panel.  Doug and Bart both taught invaluable lessons and provided insight regarding craft, today’s market and how to stand out amongst the crowd. Chelsea, Doug and Lisa then listened and gave constructive feedback to all attendees on one of their original songs during our afternoon Listening Session. The level of talent and the quality of the songs played was outstanding! We heard songs from multiple genres and even a few songs by some promising indie artists! Thank you to everyone who spent their weekend with us and made this regional event a great success! A special thanks for our coordinators who were in attendance: Christina  Meyer from Milwaukee-WI, Mark Nordeen & Jody Peterson from Madison-WI, Janet Green from Green Bay-WI, Daryl Ziemke from Chicago-IL, and Roy Holdren from Minneapolis-MN.

We look forward to planning more regional events in the future, so keep an eye on our event announcements and hope to meet you sometime soon!
