About Joel Timen, Creative Director at Word Music Publishing

After spending 7 years as a promoter and touring musician, Joel Timen asked his friends in Brightwood if he could try to manage them in the summer of 2008. After a few conversations, the band agreed. Over the next year, the band toured relentlessly, signed a licensing deal in Japan, won a contest to play in front of a distinguished panel at SXSW, placed over 10 songs on TV shows and played in front of numerous labels in LA and New York. The first year of his management company was an incredible year and concluded with a second artist added to the roster and a decision to move the company to Nashville. Over the next few years the roster expanded and became increasingly focused on songwriters and producers.  He developed two writer/producers and landed them each a publishing deal with a major Christian publisher and cuts with artists such as Group 1 Crew, Newsboys and Luminate.  He has also organized multiple one day writing camps for pop writers in town.  In June he was approached by Word music publishing to fill the role of creative director.  In late July he began the journey with Word and although it’s still fresh, there are many exciting things already in the works.


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.

  • Member pricing is $30.00 per song and non-members $50.00. (members get priority booking)
