Songwriters in Seattle is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization with over 1000 members and 10 events per month dedicated to the education of musicians and cultural enrichment of the Pacific Northwest region. Working together both creatively and in the music business, we strive to grow the musical opportunities and public support structure for the creative community. If you are a musician, we offer growth opportunities for all levels and goals whether you are looking for help with songwriting, need to expand your contacts, seeking technical expertise, or wanting more exposure for your music. For the public that seeks new music from local artists, we offer a broad range of live events, recordings, and podcasts that showcase the amazing talent of our region, some of which may have otherwise gone unnoticed or unheard.
The goal of Songwriters in Seattle is to build a creative community in Seattle that rivals nationally renowned music cities such as Nashville and Austin. We wish to create an environment that supports and nurtures talent, both in showcasing the best of our members as well as developing those who desire to improve. Through the volunteer efforts of our members to help each other, everyone is lifted up and the public will respond in kind. Our annual Northwest Music Experience awards show is the ultimate expression and celebration of this public support for a solidly connected creative community and will help build a lasting legacy in the region of quality original music.

Songwriters in Seattle was incorporated in the State of Washington as a non-profit organization on February 22, 2011.

Songwriters in Seattle was started in late 2007 by a few musicians with a need to connect with like-minded independent songwriters and learn from each others’ experiences. As it grew we began to meet at the Alibi Room in Seattle for a monthly get together over beer, pizza, and guitars, playing our songs for each other and networking with other songwriters. Soon we were showcasing our music at various venues and running monthly workshops. Collaboration, song placement on TV, and growth in a variety of ways has been the result for many members of our group. We have been photographing, videotaping, and live streaming performances of our showcases and have a host of other materials to help our members’ efforts in the music business. In 2011, the leaders of SiS took the organizational step of incorporating as a 501(c)3 charity in order to reach larger goals and have an even greater impact. The group and its regional influence is growing by leaps and bounds. Success within Songwriters in Seattle depends only on your level of participation.
