Packed House

All spots are now filled for the April 6th Showcase!

If you are feeling deep regret for not signing up sooner, I’m willing to give away my spot to one lucky songwriter. Email Joey at: ColumbusSongwritersAssociation@gmail.com

Either way, see you all at King Avenue 5, April 6th at 6PM!

Remind for Songwriters: Don’t be that guy. Come a little early and hang around after your 2nd song so we can all stand together on stage!

Good things happening for songwriters in the local music scene. We’ll share more details then :)

CSA Deal: Digital Distribution

Members: Are you planning to digitally distribute any singles or albums in the next 12 months?

We’ve been negotiating with an agency to get bottom dollar digital distribution into iTunes and other music outlets. If we have enough artists, we’ll be able to get you unlimited digital distribution for 12 months, at a cheaper price than any distributor.

Cd Baby will charge you $49 for an album.

TuneCore will charge you $30-50 per year for unlimited distribution.

ReverbNation will charge you $35 per year for unlimited distribution.

We’ll beat them all. The more artists that jump into this, the better rate we’ll get!

Local Music Shelf

Local Music Shelf connects local music with local stores, through CD distribution on wooden display shelfs and local music playlists. They’re now accepting artists for Summer CD distribution. Also, they may be expanding distribution to 50 locations this year, including placements into Cup O’ Joe locations.
