Discover Sooner, a company which seeks to accelerate the attention of publishers to songwriters, has announced its Publisher Writer Experience headed by Warner Chappell Directors Christina Wiltshire and Will Overton.
The interactive, three-month mentoring and songwriting program will help songwriters improve their skills under the direction of a publisher that advises commercially successful writers. Participants will choose which A&R Director they wish to work with.
Wiltshire is Director, A&R at Warner Chappell Nashville where she oversees a diverse multi-genre group of writers and catalogs. Formerly, she was a Creative Coordinator for Patrick Joseph Music and Sea Gayle Music’s creative team where she was responsible for pitching songs, managing writer calendars, and seeking new talent.
“If you are a songwriter or artist trying to break into this crazy industry, I want to hear from you,” shares Wiltshire. “There’s so much undiscovered talent out there, it’s your time to be heard!”
Overton is Director, A&R at Warner Chappell Music Nashville where he signs new acts and develops established acts on the company’s roster. Overton previously worked at DropTine Music and earned a Bachelor of Arts from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and a Masters in Management Studies from Duke University.
Songwriter applications for the program are due on Jan. 9. For more information or to apply, click here.
