Nashville custom song company, Songbird City, which specializes in turning memories into melodies, has officially launched after a soft opening in April.
Songbird City connects consumers looking to harness the talents of Music City by taking personal details of a loved one — or cherished experience — and turning it into a song.
Founded by Sarah Moseley, the mission of Songbird City is to help its local community of creatives through providing personalized and unique songs for each of the company’s customers, written by Nashville-based songwriters.
“To experience a song crafted by one of the artists on our roster is to experience the heart of Music City,” Moseley said.
The company splits sales 50/50 with artists on its roster and donates 10% of the company’s share to Nashville Songwriters Association International, specifically to its direct relief fund for songwriters.
“After a devastating year for the creative community here in Nashville, I wanted to find a way to help my local music community and also provide an opportunity for songwriters to make additional money,” said Moseley.
As a local songwriter herself, Moseley came up with the idea of a business that offered custom songwriting services from local Nashville artists creating a unique opportunity for customers to experience the talent in Music City.
Whether it’s to memorialize a graduation, birth, wedding or just about anything with a special meaning, Songbird City said it has the talent and ability to create a lasting, audible heirloom.
As a reflection of the musical diversity that Nashville represents, the roster of talent that Songbird City offers ranges from singer-songwriter, folk, pop and country.
“I was so excited to hear about Songbird City,” said singer-songwriter Kate Cosentino. “I’ve been working as a songwriter and writing songs on demand for a while now, but hearing about a company specifically dedicated to the Nashville music scene really spoke to my heart.
“Nashville songwriters have their own flair and being able to capture that magic and give that gift to people is something I hope everyone can experience.”
Songbird City will host a writers round-style evening of music Oct. 11 at The Listening Room Cafe in Nashville, spotlighting its talent roster, including Jared Anderson, Kate Cosentino, The Dryes, Sarah Moseley and Jon Worthy.
