MENTORING AND SONG COACHING
Sarah Nagourney recently founded GLASSBEAT MUSIC, INC. as a separate entity to focus on artist development. It is a full-service enterprise engaged in mentoring and guiding new artists through music production, marketing, consulting, concert bookings and publicity.
Her first signing, Alec Chambers, is a multi instrumentalist singer-songwriter and has been working with Sarah for a number of years. He successfully released his first EP of 4 original songs under her guidance. Alec received stellar press for his debut effort.
He is set to release a new single, Do You See Me, in Dec-2015, co-written with Sarah and Nashville fixture, Aaron Espe.
Nagourney is always working with new talent and is open to collaborating with developing and established artists.
"The support and mentoring Sarah has provided, throughout my recent career, has been unique and creative. She brings her wealth of experience and knowledge of the industry to bear with amazing suggestions and concrete advice. As a writer, Sarah’s ideas are always fresh and original; she comes prepared with lyrics, melodies and musical ideas that make the process of writing seamless. What makes her writing even more unique is the depth in her knowledge of the source (having lived through the 80's and 90's era), that a lot of artists draw from nowadays, which she sprinkles with a modern touch."
- Polina Goudieva, Grammy Award-Winning Singer-Songwriter, Recording Artist (Eminem)
"The thing about working with Sarah is she really knows the craft of songwriting. When we collaborate we get to the heart of the matter and it’s not about the latest beat or newest sound. It’s about what makes the song true for me and what is the soul of the song: A great melody, lyric and concept."
- Alec Chambers, Singer-Songwriter, Recording Artist
"Sarah's mentoring, song coaching and collaboration, as well as her career advice and direction has proved invaluable. She has helped our son Alec find and develop his unique voice and songwriting skills. Sarah met Alec as a very young hopeful and his been instrumental in developing him into a viable artist and creative contender in this very competitive field of music. She has introduced him to numerous industry leaders on both a creative and a business level. We have high hopes for Alec's future and look forward to continuing our relationship with Sarah on this exciting journey for our son."
- Dawn & Chuck Ciambriello, Parents of Alec Chambers
"Sarah as a songwriter brings so much to not only her own music, but in collaboration with others. She motivates everyone she writes with to go to where the deepest emotion and intention of the song can be fully realized together as a team. I always look forward to opportunities to write with Sarah. She creatively comes from such an inspired place, whether it be comes from personal experience or mirroring back life through her lyric. If you are a veteran songwriter, or just developing your craft, she makes a wonderful collaborator. I especially suggest new developing writers work with Sarah. You will learn so much and she will help you discover and further expand your voice as a writer."
- Jeff Bova, Grammy Award-Winning Producer, Musician, Composer, Arranger
