DiscoverSooner, the Nashville-based start-up and online platform for songwriters and publishers announced their second online event, Priceless Answers From Publishers with Steve Bloch and Cliff Audretch III.

Wednesday, September 2 at 4pm CDT. Registration details and information available here.
- Steve Bloch of Steve Bloch Music
- Cliff Audretch III of Downtown Music Group
- Hosted by Nancy Deckant, Founder and CEO of DiscoverSooner
The interactive event seeks to connect songwriters and publishers. Guest professional publishers will share how they select the songwriters they work with, the types of writers they are looking for, and provide a live Q&A session. Attendees will have the opportunity to submit a song to the publishers after the event and three deserving songwriters will be referred to panelists Steve Bloch and Cliff Audretch III by DiscoverSooner.
“Though melody is always required as the initial enticement to enroll the listener, I’m a lyric guy. When a songwriter’s music has depth, I know it’s a song or a writer I can be a warrior for,” said Steve Bloch Music – Steve Bloch. “I am very excited about being a part of this panel and sharing my perspective.”
These experienced publishers are an integral part of the music industry helping both artists and songwriters alike find success through their music.
