    Interview with Singer-Songwriter Troy Castellano
    by Dan Reifsnyder, GSC Reporter Dan Reifsnyder:  How did you get started in music? Troy Castellano: I think it was this radio and old record player that we had at home – one of those big consoles. I actually still have it! It’s been in our family from the time I was a kid, I could barely see over the edge of it to see the record spin. But that was...

#MemberMonday- GSC Members at Work!

I love receiving member emails telling me about your connections, successes and open doors that you receive via GSC services during this YEAR OF OPPORTUNITY! I am very proud when those email subject lines read…“Sharing Very Good News,” like the emails from our 2018 “Lorna Flowers Community Ambassador” Award Winner Scott Barrier and singer/songwriter Donna De Sopo.

Over the past 3 months, GSC members have received over 20 single song agreements from various publishers via pop events, meeting requests and the list goes on. Our GSC members are RISING, RISING in the industry and it is the result of a lot of work which can span several years.

Jeffrey Joseph East gives GREAT GUIDANCE at our GSC Focus Retreats. He says to “Celebrate Every Success!” Below is the email I received from Donna. I especially love how Donna celebrates all of their vocalists and collaborators. I have chosen not to share the publisher name nor company out of respect for Scott and Donna’s work and effort.

From Donna DeSopo – “I wanted to share some very good news! I've been working with (name of publisher withheld) at (name of company withheld) and have been sending songs for film and TV placement. In addition to signing a non-exclusive agreement for 'Gift of Christmas', that was featured in the movie, Shoelaces for Christmas, they just added 3 new songs to the schedule A: 'All of Me', 'Cozy Christmas' and 'Smoke and Shadows' that I wrote with Scott Barrier and Jayce Gutknecht (artist). Even more exciting, they sent over 2 briefs on Friday, one for a Christmas ask ASAP (within a week) with a little information to go by -- female, pop, woman meets a man (with a child) during Christmas and they all live happily ever after. On Sunday, Nate, Scott and I wrote 'First Christmas' specifically for this request and sent it within 3 days. On Friday, we're finishing another song for a 2nd ask with Alayna Carroll, 'Taking Over the World', for a cable series. Alayna sounded great in 'Confetti Life', which I sent the company tonight along with other songs with different vibes and emotions for placement consideration. Saying prayers and keeping fingers crossed!

Having a songwriting gift is part of the equation, having a "complex music industry" gift is needed too. They go hand in hand. You can write the greatest song in the world and smile while it sits in a shelf. 🙂

You may have seen the name Peter Daniel on our GSC Social Media pages as Peter participants in our GSC Publisher Online Pitch events faithfully. His songs have been consistently gaining attention and interest from Nashville publishers and have been taken many times for further listening and review.

Just this year Peter made his first trip to the U.S. to visit Music City. GSC helped him to set up a couple of meetings with publishers who had taken interest in his songs and he attended many of Nashville’s famous writer round venues making wonderful connections. His trip was so successful that he is returning again this September.

Peter describes himself as a SONGWRITER. STEAK LOVER. NEW FATHER! He is starting out his 9 month old daughter on the guitar right away! Peter says that she is teaching him new chords all the time!

Peter and his path to music success is a great example our “International/Global Membership!" Although we are located in Nashville, TN, we are opening doors for creators world wide who have an interest in the Nashville or U.S. music market.
