There’s a wealth of songwriting talent in the San Francisco Bay Area, much of which was well-represented at the West Coast Songwriters Conference this weekend. I’ve been fortunate to meet, many, many wonderful musicians through both WCS and the less-formal ‘Bay Area Songwriting Collective’ which also gathered this weekend. The latter is a loosely knit group of several dozen of the Bay Area’s committed songwriters who’ve been coming together for years to share and critique their newest songs. Think peer-review over a good meal. While most members actively perform and record, we’re starting a performance residency, second Sundays at The Actual Cafe in Oakland next month. Each turn, three or so members will be featured performers.
The Songwriter Sundays at Actual Cafe kicks off October 10, at 4pm. Come, come…and expect new and great material in a community friendly venue.
