Indie Connect announces upcoming “Virtual Songwriter Showcase”; seeks sponsors

by Dave Carew

Fresh from the success of its Virtual Music Conference & Expo, held this past February, Indie Connect has decided to host its first-ever “IC Virtual Songwriter Showcase” in September. The event will be held exclusively online. So anyone in the world with a computer can “attend.”

Indie Connect is the Nashville-based networking and empowerment organization for singer-songwriters, other musicians, and music pros.

Plans for the event include:

* 30 speakers

* A business trade show

* A songwriter trade show

* Numerous networking opportunities

* Song pitches to publishers, producers, and artists

* Song evaluations

Indie Connect is actively seeking sponsors for this one-of-a-kind event. Any business that deals with songwriters and artists is appropriate. Ideal companies would include demo studios, song plugging/shopping individuals or companies, anyone who offers song evaluations, companies that manufacture songwriting software, and songwriting organizations.

Editor’s Note: “Underground Nashville” covers artists, authors, musicians, poets, political figures, and other compelling people and happenings not typically covered by the mainstream Nashville media. It also presents reflections and commentary from an underground/indie perspective, offering “thoughts from the shadows of a great American city.”
