I'm Claire Pearson Perry (perform as Pearson Perry) and I wear two hats as a songwriter - I write mainstream country music for a publisher in Nashville, TN and I write/perform indie folk rock for my audience.
Over the last 18 months of driving back and forth to Nashville, I have been amazed at how many people I meet in Nashville are actually from Atlanta. Wouldn't it be great to be able to work with each other - without having to drive to another state?
I am looking to meet other singer/songwriters - all levels and genres are welcome - who are serious about the craft of songwriting and want to build a strong songwriter community in Atlanta. Atlanta is already known for great R&B and Hip Hop - let's put our Singer/Songwriter talent in the mix as well.
Meet-ups will be half writing time and half performing in the round. This is a critique free zone. This is an opportunity to work out new material, remind yourself how to play old material, network with other local musicians, and create your next big hit!
I have also formed a google+ community called Atlanta Intown Songwriters so we can do hangouts, promote our shows, have informal meetings, and build our fan base. Please be sure to check it out!
