Artist Pitch Priorities for Fall 2023 (& New Coaching & Mentoring Services) 

Artist Pitch Priorities for Fall 2023!
From Jenny: "Lots of male artists are looking right now for hit songs! However, I would focus less on tailoring "too much" to the artist specifically. Instead, simply check out the artist's material online to get a sense of their sound/style/what they've done in the past, and just send your best songs!"
Would you like to connect one-on-one with a Nashville Publisher?

Pitch requests from Debbie Zavitson 


Ongoing & Always Looking For...

Blake Shelton

Debbie is pitching songs directly to Blake!

From Debbie - "I am looking for song of the year for Blake Shelton! We recently celebrated 20 years since "Austin" was No. 1 (that I found for him), and he's still going strong and has been having No. 1's every year since then. Blake knows a great song when he hears one, so I can't play him anything less! Only the best of the best songs will get taken and will be considered to send to him."



***Please Note: Debbie will listen to all songs that are marked for specific artists and/or labels before the time of her pitch meetings, however, it may take longer to receive her responses/reviews for individual submissions.

Thank you for your patience in advance!
