ASG is excited and honored that Chris Oglesby, of Oglesby Writer Management in Nashville, will be visiting ASG June 8-10, for a music publishing workshop and private song pitch appointments. Due to demand, we have added slots for private appointments on Sunday, with only a couple slots available for Friday and Saturday’s private appointments being sold out. The actual workshop takes place on Saturday morning from 11:00-1:30. Saturday’s private appointments will take place before and after the workshop. This is another installment of ASG’s ongoing efforts to bring music publishing professionals to Austin to meet directly with songwriters, and while it is Chris’ first private visit to ASG, it is not his first time to meet ASG songwriters.
Many of you may have met Chris earlier this year at the ASG Symposium 2012 in January. At the Symposium, Chris was one of three Nashville music publishing professionals facilitating workshops and song pitch sessions, along with Bobby Rymer of The Writer’s Den and Mike Molinar of Effusion Entertainment. Through Oglesby Writer Management, Chris fills a unique and innovative niche in the music publishing business. He actually manages and represents songwriters, rather than a specific publisher.
In his 25-plus years in publishing, Chris has worked with some of the giants in the industry. As an advocate for the writers he represents he has been able to land deals for newcomers, give added support to established writers and secure co-writes with American Idol winners, like Carrie Underwood, for whom Chris is one of the key players in her behind the scenes team. In his advice blog for songwriters, Chris encourages songwriters to focus on the one aspect of the business they have absolute control over – the quality and craft of their own songs.
Your opportunity to learn from Chris’ vast experience and success in the music publishing business will be Friday & Saturday, June 8-10, exclusively at ASG. Chris will be facilitating a music publishing & songwriting workshop on Saturday, June 9 from 11:00 AM -1:30 PM. The cost of the workshop is only $35 (with current ASG Membership in effect).
PLEASE NOTE: You must register for the workshop to be eligible for a private appointment with Chris.
Chris will be seeing ASG songwriters in private appointments on Friday, June 8,, before and after the Saturday workshop, and we have now added slots for Sunday, June 10. The private appointments are scheduled in time units of 30 minutes each at a cost of $50 per unit. You may schedule a second 30 minute appointment, also at a cost of $50.
Space is limited for both the workshop and also the private appointments.
Thank you for visiting the ASG website and we look forward to seeing you soon at one of our many upcoming events.
