ASCAP Senior Creative Director LeAnn Phelan and Creative Manager Ryan Bueschel have announced the names of the twelve talented, unsigned songwriters that will make up the ASCAP GPS Project Class of 2013. Now in its third year, the program puts emphasis on getting the best of Nashville’s unsigned ASCAP songwriters in front of the city’s vibrant publishing community. Twelve writers are paired with twelve publishers for one meeting a month, along with a follow-up meeting to help develop the writer and solidify the relationship.

ASCAP’s GPS Project Class of 2013 participants are: Jillian Arciero, Brittany Aultman, Brian Burke, Chris Drizen, Kris Hitchcock, Jonathan Kingham, Anthony Olympia, Ryan Plappert, Dara Sisterhen, Austin Smith, Sarah Allison Turner and Keith Walker.

“With shrinking man power and increasing workloads, as a community we can’t afford to take our eyes off the importance of writer development. The ASCAP GPS Project gets some of Nashville’s finest publishers involved in an invaluable learning experience for these talented writers,” commented Phelan.

The 2013 ASCAP GPS Project kicked off in January and will continue with events taking place through the end of the year. Additional special activities will include a mid-year writers’ round, guidance for participants from attorneys and other industry influentials, networking events and more.
