Our Vision for 2019

2019 is going to be an incredible year. Look forward to:

1. Community: Monthly Showcases at Brothers Drake Meadery to test and share new songs.
2. Celebration: Recognizing our 2018 performers at the Finale Showcase in early Spring.
3. Innovation: Thanks to our supporters at the Greater Columbus Arts Council we’ve been developing a sync licensing feature into our website that will help songwriters with instrumental music promote your music for placement opportunities.
4. Gigs: We’re always working hard to advocate for performance opportunities for local songwriters and performers. We love recommending performers to Black Brick in the Short North. Submit your booking request at
5. New Showcase Opportunities: We’re considering ways to expand our monthly showcase opportunities through a new listening room in downtown Columbus.

Congrats to Carole Walker and Tell Collective for the “Burn” Music Video Release!

Part of being a member of CSA for many years is the joy if seeing songwriters grow, develop, and rise — through new songs, new projects, and career growth as part-time and full-time creators.

At the 2018 CSA Finale Showcase, Bob Egle, the Film Director of Tell Collective, selected 1 of 20 songwriters to film and produce a commercial-grade music video from scratch. To the merriment and awe of many, Bob selected Carole Walker’s “Burn” and immediately got to work on the production details. This video was a collaborative effort by Carole, Tell Collective, and several other venues and small businesses downtown (shout out to the Short North Alliance) who collaborated together to make the film crew, music, and setting come together. Bob added his magic to the film and story, and Carole’s song truly shines bright in this passionate love story set in downtown Columbus!
