The Pitch Meeting is a musical movement, breaking new ground and cultivating a vibrant songwriting community in the heart of Music City. The centerpiece of the movement is Nashville's first "songwriter pitch night", an event where rising songwriting talents have the opportunity to showcase their songs, with the world class Pitch Meeting band backing them up and bringing their songs to life. It is a forum where the vision of the songwriter meets some of Nashville's finest musicianship, and what results is the basis for one of the city's most exciting and fastest growing new communities. Spontaneity, originality, explosive talent, and a supportive atmosphere make The Pitch Meeting one of a kind. Join us!
After years at the helm of Sydney, Australia's most prominent weekly jam, Eric Fortaleza brought his talents to Nashville, TN and fast became a fixture in Music City's songwriting community. As the bass player and MD for country artist Lindsay Ell, he has toured the world and experienced the universal power of a great song. He has assembled some of Nashville's finest musicians (the Pitch Meeting band) to give back to Nashville's songwriting community in the form of the "songwriter pitch night". Songwriters get to hear what their songs sound like when supported by an amazing band, and the audience gets to witness the magic of an artist's vision being spontaneously realized in a live setting.
