ANTHEM ENTERTAINMENT OFFERS TWO NSAI MEMBERS SINGLE-SONG CONTRACTS
Next NSAI Chapter Challenge Set For April 2021
February 8th, 2021 (Nashville, Tenn.) - Anthem Entertainment has offered single-song contracts to two Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI) members as a result of the most recent NSAI Chapter Challenge. Sal Cosentino, member of the NSAI New York City Chapter, was selected for his song “Truth Is,” and Linda Sclafani, member of the NSAI Columbus, Ohio Chapter, was chosen for her song, “One More Round of Cheer.
“We were so impressed with the songs presented in this year’s Chapter Challenge that we were thrilled to extend single-song contracts to two NSAI Members, Sal Cosentino and Linda Sclafani.” said Tim Hunze of Anthem Entertainment. “We are partnering with NSAI once again for another Chapter Challenge and look forward to exploring another group of songs and songwriters!”
The upcoming NSAI Chapter Challenge will take place April 2021, where nearly 100 NSAI Regional Chapters will hold a Chapter Challenge meeting for the first phase. Any member who opts to participate will present one song at their local chapter during the designated meeting, and all members present will vote on their favorite submission which will advance to the second stage. In the second stage, NSAI representatives will review each winning song along with each Regional Chapter Coordinator submission to narrow down to a final group of songs presented to Anthem Entertainment for contract consideration.
“The Anthem Chapter Challenge offers a unique chance for our members to not only be heard by one of America’s top global publishing companies, but also the incredible opportunity for one or more of them to receive a contract where Anthem will attempt to get theirs songs placed with an artist and/or in film or television,” said NSAI Regional Chapter Director McKenzie Parker. “NSAI has thousands of members who write great songs but don’t pursue songwriting as a full-time career. This is a unique and unprecedented opportunity for them to have a professional relationship with a great publishing company.”
Sal Cosentino, a Brooklyn, NY based songwriter, has been an NSAI member for 5 years. Sal’s other recent songwriting successes include having original songs represented by multiple sync agencies and landing his first ad placement through Songtradr.
“Joining NSAI was one of the most important decisions I have ever made as a songwriter,” said Sal Cosentino.“Through NSAI, I have gained insight and knowledge about writing and re-writing, I have had the opportunity to participate in unique events, such as Song Camp, monthly Chapter Meetings, Chapter Challenges, Pitch to Publishers, and more. In addition, I have been able to meet, network and write with other talented writers.”
Linda Sclafani began writing songs in New York City while playing local venues. She continues to perform with her husband/co-writer locally and internationally.
“It is an honor, and I can’t thank NSAI enough for giving us all the opportunity to learn, grow, collaborate, and take part in the wonderful events and challenges you provide.” – Linda Sclafani
