(Nashville, Tenn. – December 12, 2017) – Sheree Spoltore, Founder of Global Songwriters Connection (GSC) recently held the 5th Annual GSC Holiday Mixer. The cherished event brought together several hundred GSC members and industry professionals to celebrate the year and all the success it’s brought to those GSC members representing the songwriting community during the past 5 years.
GSC was formed in 2013 to help songwriters find direction, gather knowledge, and experience through the organization and its resources. The organization currently serves artists and songwriters in all 50 states and 42 countries and offers personalized career mentoring services to equip singers, songwriters, and artists in all genres and at every level, with industry connections, tools and an individualized plan to help them to reach the next step. A GSC annual membership runs $50 and additional services are also available on an ala carte basis. Whether it is song crafting, career, or artist development, GSC’s mentoring services focus on personal songwriter development first. Since it’s conception, GSC has had 8 writers to sign publishing deals through Sheree’s efforts. Many creators she has worked with, from the start, to help build their careers are now achieving and experiencing successes and she continues her efforts on their behalf, writers such as Keesy Timmer, Jeffrey East, and artist/writers Lance Carpenter and up and coming talent Riley Roth to name a few.
