An Online Community for Singer Songwriters

About the challenge

Are you a singer-songwriter who would benefit from community, motivation, accountability, and creative prompts? Are you an artist who enjoys sharing and collaborating with others?

The Studio Songwriter is an online community for artists who want to hone their craft, in process with others.

Limited space

Lots of smiles from participants in the summer songwriting challenge.
