The eighth Song Revolution Workshop sponsored by Nashville Christian Songwriters was a complete sell out, ending with plenty of tears, laughter, connection, and inspiration. Thirty-three songwriters converged on Nashville in October for the workshop that provided a premium three-day experience featuring current industry personnel, including publishers, highly successful songwriters, producers, coaches, and clinicians with multiplied years of experience to equip aspiring songwriters from all over the United States and Canada.
“Our goal is to help songwriters level up their songwriting,” says NCS Founder and President, John Chisum. “We bring songwriters who have no direct access into contact with people who work with top Christian and mainstream artists and songwriters,” he says, “as well as offering song coaching, teaching, and feedback you can’t find anywhere else.”
The roster of artists, clinicians, and coaches included Chad Segura, VP of Publishing for Centricity Music; Kenna Turner West, multiple award-winning songwriter for Curb | Word Entertainment; Rob Frazier, former band member of Petra and prolific songwriter; David Baroni, Grammy winner and songwriter; Robert Till, VP of Nashville Christian Songwriters; Jeff Nelson, songwriter and producer; and Steve Fee, frontman of the group Fee, Centricity Music songwriter and producer.
Worship and worship songwriting take top billing at the workshop and long-time North Point Community Church music producer and songwriter Steve Fee (Fee, Passion, Chris Tomlin, North Point) brought key points during his Thursday evening talk at Centricity Music (Jason Gray, Lauren Daigle, Andrew Peterson and many more) alongside Centricity Music’s VP of Publishing, Chad Segura.
Attendees experience professional song coaching, critique, and receive encouragement and advice on how to not only improve their songwriting skills, but how to move forward in their careers and ministries. “I was just very impressed with the high caliber, professional opportunities… I’ve gotten to listen to some great people who are very well known in the industry and [who] are very passionate about what they do… what I learned exceeded my expectations,” said one attendee.
