About Shane Barrett

Owner – Shane Barrett Music

Originally from Cincinnati, Ohio, Shane Barrett moved to Nashville in 1985. After graduating from Hillsboro High School, he attended Belmont University and graduated with a Music Business degree in 1991. Barrett played guitar and sang background vocals with several touring acts after college, including Lacy J. Dalton.

In 1994, Barrett joined MCA Records Nashville, starting in the mailroom, and moving up to the A&R Dept. in 1996. He then worked as A&R Manager for famed producer and MCA president Tony Brown and eventually signed two acts to the label, Shannon Lawson and Jessi Alexander.

Barrett left MCA in late 2002 to start his own company, Shane Barrett Songs, LLC. He served as independent songplugger and music consultant to TAXI and a handful of music publishing companies in the Nashville market.

From January 2006 – May 2010, Barrett worked as Nashville Creative Director for Canadian-based publishing company, ole Songs, Inc.

In July 2010, Barrett formed Shane Barrett Music, LLC, which includes independent songplugging for various clients, music consulting services, and producing of independent artists.

About the Publisher Online Pitch Event

Have you ever thought: “Wow I think I have a really good song. If only I could get a legitimate publisher to listen?”

Through GSC’s affordable Publisher Online Pitch service you can have your song or songs heard by a reputable publisher from wherever in the world you live and without the expensive cost of travel.

One of the most important elements of this service is that you will be connecting with a publisher, creating a relationship with this publisher and learning the pitching process professional songwriters utilize every day.

Here are the details!

  • This is a member-only event.
  • Members can take advantage of the “Listen Only” option for only $20 before pitching a song.
  • This event is limited to 35 song pitches.
  • Once you purchase the POP event you will receive a confirmation that will contain your step by step instructions for logging into the webcast.
  • If you purchase a song pitch, you will need to email your song in mp3 format along with your photo (jpg format only) and bio and lyric (Microsoft Word format only) to [email protected]   48 hours before the event. (Please list your name and where you are from on the top of your lyric. GSC wants the publisher to connect with you.)
  • Guitar vocals and keyboard vocals are acceptable. You do not have to have a full demo for this event.
  • The publisher will only listen to the first verse and the chorus of your song.
  • The publisher may or may not comment on your song. This event is not intended as a publisher evaluation service; although in most cases, the publisher will offer constructive advice.
  • This is a real publisher pitch opportunity. The publisher will either PASS on your song OR he may choose to keep your song for further consideration.
  • You are encouraged to stay involved in the webinar while all songs are listened to and here is why:
    • Out of respect for the other participants.
    • Should the publisher choose to comment on a song, you will learn from what he has to say.
    • If a publisher takes a song, you will want to connect with that songwriter and possibly co-write with that writer.
