• Hitmakers Clay Mills & Marty Dodson give detailed instructions on how to approach your assignments.


Submit a “Song Start” to the artist later in the week.

• After learning about the artist, you will submit a "song start" to the artist.

• Song starts can be a written chorus... lyric, music, or both!


Each artist chooses a winning "song start" and schedules a co-writing session online with the writer.

• The artists will choose their favorite "song start" from the class .

• Each week the artists explain why they chose their winning "song start."

• All 3 artists will schedule a co-writing session with the writer who submitted the chosen "song starts!"

Reviver Entertainment Recording Artist Brooke Moriber

Known for her “clarion voice”, Brooke Moriber’s powerhouse vocals and emotional songwriting have connected with audiences from New York City to Nashville – the two towns she calls home.

Invited out to the west coast by an LA-based label executive in 2018, Brooke collaborated with a number of pop music’s up-and-coming writers. But it was clear her heart was in country music.

“Cry Like A Girl” was independently released in 2019 with Parade Magazine praising Brooke for her “raw emotion, strong vocals, and spot-on delivery”. Brooke is currently in the studio recording her first tracks for Reviver and writing with many of Music Row’s hit makers.

Reviver Entertainment Recording Artist David Adam Byrnes

David Adam Byrnes – an Arkansas native, moved to Nashville, TN at the age of 19. Within his first year he signed a publishing deal/record deal with Better Angels. His first taste of success came with the release of his single “Sweet Distraction” that hit #62 on Billboard and Top 20 on Music Row.

In 2018, David made the move to the Ft. Worth area. His lead single to Texas Radio “Beer Bucket List” became his first # 1 on The Texas Regional Radio Chart. In October 2020, David released his full album “Neon Town”, which made its debut in the Top 5 on the iTunes Country Music chart. Now with 4 back to back # 1 songs, a music video that was premiered by CMT and a nomination for “New Male Vocalist of the Year” at The Texas Regional Radio Awards under his belt, David Adam Byrnes has earned himself a music business education that just can’t be bought.
