Hi Friends,

I’m cutting and pasting this announcement from Nick Serro of the NYC chapter. The click on links should work.

Nicks message:

Our Next Meeting of the New York City Chapter of NSAI…..(RSVP Required for this one.)

  “A Songwriting Conversation with J.T.Harding”

We are incredibly fortunate to have Nashville Pro Songwriter J.T. Harding coming by to attend our meeting.

JT has written #1 hit songs such as Somewhere with You ( Kenny Chesney), Alone with You ( Jake Owen) and Smile ( Uncle Cracker). We will chat with JT informally and he will answer your questions about songwriting. He will also play us a couple of songs and might even be able stay to listen to a few our songs and give some feedback ( no promises on that one!)

JT will be in New York for a Musical that has been written around some of his songs – ‘Somewhere with You’ . ‘SOMEWHERE WITH YOU’ is a country-rock musical with music by JT Harding and features many of his hit songs. This compellingly gritty, coming-of-age love story centers around a new generation of Southerners growing up in the early 2000s, confronted by the methamphetamine epidemic, the war in Iraq, and other post-9/11 challenges in the rural South. Here is the link for tickets.

Due to a limited amount of space, YOU MUST RSVP to attend this meeting.

Announcements:     ( The events and/or resources mentioned in these Newsletters are NOT specifically endorsed by NSAI and are noted here as a means of sharing information on events and resources. It should be thought of as a “Bulletin Board” to make members aware of them.)



We have created two private Facebook groups for NSAI members and all other songwriters in the tri-state area. While these pages are not designated as specifically related to NSAI, they have been set up and are being administered by an NSAI member, Russell Dritz.  I will also be an administrator, but Russ is taking the lead on this and we all thank him for that.  Click on the pictures or links below to visit the Facebook groups:


musicNYcity Co-Writers is an online community that you can use to find your next songwriting partner.  Directions on how to use the group are in the “about” section of the site. Post some music and information about yourself so you can connect with other talented songwriters!  This is a private group, so only other members will see your post.  Make sure to invite others to join as well.


musicNYcity Songwriters

is an online community for songwriters to post and to find local songwriting groups and resources, songwriting classes and workshops, writer’s shows, and concerts.  Post your demos, share your advice, and enjoy networking.  Again, this is a private group, so only other members will see your posts.  Since membership is free, we ask that you do your best to help support other members.


If you have announcements that you think might be relevant to other Songwriters or about an upcoming performance of yours, let us know. We will include it in the next Newsletter.
