The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) has announced the line-up of songwriters that will make up the ASCAP Guidance from Publishers for Songwriters (GPS) Project LIVE at The Basement on Monday, Sept. 28, beginning at 5 p.m.
Now in its fifth year, the GPS Project aims to display unsigned writers to the Nashville publishing community. Throughout the project, songwriters are paired with publishers for one meeting a month along with a follow-up for critiquing and networking. Additional special activities this year have included a songwriters camp and various networking opportunities.
“We have to remain focused on writer development,” commented ASCAP Associate Director Evyn Mustoe and ASCAP Director Robert Filhart. “GPS gives deserving unsigned writers an opportunity to learn from the best publishers in Nashville, and this show will give every publisher the opportunity to see and hear most of the writers from the current GPS class.”
The 2015 ASCAP GPS Project kicked off in January and will continue through the end of the year.
