Songwriting Competition alert.
Our friends over at Listen Up Music are doing something important. So important that we decided to help them out as much as we could.
Listen Up Music are committed to combating mental health problems nationwide. How? By using music.
Through music-focused events and education, Listen Up’s vision is to foster an inclusive community of musicians and fans who share an appreciation for music’s unique power to unite and heal. We’ve joined that community because we couldn’t agree more. Music brings people together in a positive forum, and we are big supporters of that.
Listen Up Music believes in change. Not merely “awareness raising” but constructive, impactful and life-altering change.
As a part of their work they host a yearly songwriting competition that we think every musician with an instrument should enter. They use the competition to battle stigma against mental health in an open forum and unite musicians to do that.
To enter all you have to do is write a song under the theme of ‘Songs That Heal’. All songs will be listened to by the Listen Up team and the finalists will be invited to perform on stages nationwide. The winners get to take home some wicked prize packs (check them out below).
Muso is contributing to the prize pack by giving all the finalists access to our mentoring program run by Matt O’Gorman from British India. We will also be judging some of the semi-finals.
So get writing and throw a song in the ring for an amazing cause. Entries close on the 13th of June!
