About Us

Songwriters Live is a network of quality showcase nights supporting prominent and emerging songwriters. Starting in Manly over 15 years ago, the growth and popularity of these events has been nothing short of staggering. During this time over 6000 artists have performed at Songwriters Live, including some of Australia’s best such as Angus and Julia Stone, Steve Balbi, James Blundell, Troy Cassar Daley, Jackie Bristow, Butterfly Nine, Louise Perryman, Kevin Bennett and James Gillard, Sara Storer, and many more.

The event is organised and hosted by multi award winning singer/songwriter Keith Armitage

All the artists perform free of charge and consequently there is no cover charge. We provide the artists with a quality PA and sound engineer, information flyers on the tables, a weekly promotional newsletter with over 2000 subscribers and of course this website. Artists need only bring their instruments, and leads.

Usually four acts perform a 30 minute original set each night, starting with soloists and duo’s, moving through to bands as the night heats up.

How do I play at Songwriters Live?

New artists (in most contemporary styles of music) are selected to perform by submitting their demos. It is our aim to provide the highest standard of songwriters possible and an enjoyable night of entertainment. Please email keith@songwriterslive.com.au  if you would like to perform at one of our Songwriters Lives shows.
