Texas Songwriter U (TxSU), in collaboration with Texas-born singer-songwriter Jack Ingram, the Texas Heritage Songwriters’ Association and The ASCAP Foundation, will be holding their 4th Annual Texas Songwriter U discovery and development songwriting program this fall.
Texas Songwriter U is an annual songwriting competition, educational workshop and showcase event serving to identify, develop and support the best adult songwriters both in and from Texas, while improving upon the quality and quantity of professional songwriting across our state. The annual program will be held in Austin, November 1st – November 3rd, 2017.
Texas Songwriter U is currently taking applications of all lyrical, musical genres into its 2017 competition. Songwriters have until midnight, Sunday, September 17th, 2017, to submit two songs via upload to TexasSongwriterU.com for consideration.
Applicants must be at least 18 years of age and either have been born in Texas, currently live in Texas, or lived in Texas for five (5) consecutive years. Applicants may hold a current publishing agreement and TxSU will accept both self-published and co-written songs. A $25 processing fee is required of all contest applicants. The structure for judging individual songwriting talent will rely on industry professionals blindly rating each song.
Finalists will enjoy a two-night stay at Hotel Van Zandt, the boutique Kimpton hotel inspired by Austin’s prolific music scene. All meals will be provided to finalists throughout their stay.
The Texas Songwriter U workshop will start on Thursday, November 2nd and will conclude on Friday, November 3rd at the Gibson Brands Showroom in Austin.
