Our 5th Annual SONA Summit - Songwriting - Past, Present, Future? will be held on Sunday, September 15, 2019 from 6-10pm at the historic Village Studios. This year’s panel discussion will be “Songwriting: The Job": What it once was, what it is now & what we hope it will be (if we can save it!). A public conversation about the evolution of the songwriter career and how it's changed because of streaming. Hear from the perspective of a songwriter who has had #1 hits in four consecutive decades and from songwriters who are having #1 hits THIS WEEK!


  • Rick Nowels (Madonna, Adele, Lana Del Ray)

  • Jesse St.John (Charli XCX, Camila Cabello, Lizzo "Truth Hurts")

  • Nija (Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Cardi B)

  • Moderator: Erika Nuri-Taylor (Jason Derulo, Meghan Trainor, Janelle Monáe)


  • Our lips are sealed about "the musical." You'll just need to be there for the big reveal. #FUN!!!!

  • We’ll be sending out a list of some of our AMAZING auction items later next week.
