Performing Songwriters who would like to be considered for On the Tracks Songwriter Showcase should READ THIS FIRST.
We typically book 12 – 18 months out so short notice bookings almost never happen.
BEFORE YOU SUBMIT: Please be aware that our concerts take place ONLY on the first Wednesday of the month from September – May. No exceptions. We rent the building so we can’t easily create an event on another night. At this time we do NOT host concerts in the summer or on any day other than the first Wednesday of the month from September – May.
What we’re looking for…
Please know that it is not our intention to be snobbish or in any way discouraging. The simple fact is that there just aren’t enough shows to book everyone we would like and that list keeps growing. A decision not to book you does not necessarily mean we don’t love you or your music.
That said, we are looking for a very specific kind of performance for this series. We take our tag line “It’s all about the songs” very literally and in most cases, we are seeking out seasoned artists who we admire personally with a healthy library of great songs. In some cases we will book artists who we feel have a lots of potential (and yes, we recognize that this is subjective, but since this is our series, we get to choose).
Here are a couple more things to consider before you submit:
- It is highly unlikely that we will book an artist we’ve never seen perform live. We are busy performing artists ourselves and our ability to get out and see you perform is limited, so its a crap shoot.
- We are primarily booking solos or duos. Our preference for this series is to keep it very stripped down and intimate. It’s not that we don’t love bands. But with each additional band member you increase the risk of cluttering the ears, greatly hindering the ability to hear the lyrics.
So, are you passionate about songwriting? Are you willing to share and can you talk with confidence about your own songwriting?
If you would like to be considered, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’re not sure whether or not we know you (don’t assume we know OF you – popularity is not a factor), please send a message with dates you’ll be coming through, a link to your EPK or if not readily available on your website, send a LINK (no attachments please) to your videos and music.
Thanks for your understanding.
