Building a Songwriters Community + Imparting Wisdom = Unlimited Possibilities! Antonio Neal of Anshar Forever Studios presents The Writers Block.

Nashville, TN – Have you noticed that there are many venues around the music industry catering to the up-and-coming artists or established artists? Have you ever thought about the songwriter behind the song sung by the up-and-coming artist? Maybe or maybe not! Antonio Neal, a Grammy Nominated & Dove Songwriter Winner of Anshar Forever Studios is all about the songwriter and is ready to kick-off his First Annual Writers Block held on June 18th and 19th, 2010 at The Holiday Inn Express in Smyrna, Tennessee.

The two-day event will be tailored specifically around the ins-and-outs of how to become the songwriter from within and what is needed from a business perspective. It’s good that you have the talent to write a song, but it also requires knowledge to get your song recorded and published.

The Friday and Saturday line-up will leave you wanting more as we kick-off with Matt Ewald an A&R for EMI CMG Publishing stops by to share his wisdom from the business side. While Jackie Patillo of  A&R and Artist Development for Verity/Zomba skills us on the Do’s and Don’ts of pitching songs to artists, music supervisors, and record labels .The team will discuss topics such as Steps to improve song structure, How to develop an outstanding chorus, How to expand beyond your comfort zone, How to copyright songs, and many more. The close of Friday night will be an opportunity for a handful of songwriters to share one of their songs with the budding songwriting community (and yes, that means we all will participate) for positive and helpful feedback. What better way to build a music community than to share an encouraging word with a fellow songwriter?

And, if that was not enough Saturday will be chocked full with the Art of co-writing. This session will be where individuals will be divided into groups, work on a song, and then hit the studio to record. Antonio Neal’s heart is definitely for the music but he knows that the music would not be possible without the songwriter. Antonio says, “ he would love to see a community of songwriters come together and allow the attention to be on the songwriter and not the artist.”

If you are a serious songwriter and you want to receive the knowledge needed to survive in the business then this is where you need to be. The Writers Block is a two-day event and the cost is $99 per person through June 1st after June 1st the price will be $125. Seating is limited to only 40 slots and time is running out to register.
