    Hi guys, just found you on Facebook, looks amazing, any chance of looking at our band “No Intelligent Life (N.I.L)”? We’re just about to release an EP and would be great if you could have us on your show, cheers.

      Dear Hayden,

      Thank you for your interest in On Song Australia. Great to see you are producing an EP. While we are mainly dealing with solo artist, we are also happy to potentially feature an act with co-writers. We will mostly have the artist backed by a smoking band so we would have to look at the logistics there. Kindly go to
      http://onsongaus.com/register-now/ to get started and we will take it from there.

    Stage dream awaits for talented On Song Australia singer-songwriters

    Three weeks into the campaign, On Song Australia has received more than a 100 singer-songwriters register and submit songs for the program’s first TV pilot episodes, being shot June 3rd at the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts.

    Now comes the hard part, picking three artists to feature.

    Host and co-creator Ken Kunin said the talent pool of entries so far has been extraordinary.

    “The entries we have received so far have been outstanding – the talent out there amongst singer-songwriters is just fantastic!” Ken said.

    “There have been 15 standout singer-songwriterswho have been featured since the campagn began. The hard part will be narrowing this down to feature just three artists at the June 3rd show. All the artists that we have already selected will receive global exposure via our social channels – an audience that is rapidly growing.

    “This is not a voting talent or popularity based show but one where everyone wins. Who we select for the first show will come down to who our panel believes will work well collectively for this event.“

    Once On Song Australia started marketing to the world as opposed to just the Australia market, they saw their Facebook page likes grow from 1,100 to over 17,500 people in a matter of just two weeks.

    “The take home message is that music is the world’s universal language,” Ken said.

    “With the advent of the internet and social media, there is no limit to the size of the audience. Artists want to connect with people, regardless of where they live or where their audience is based.”

    The 15 singer-songwriters that have been featured so far, range from up and comers like Jordan Merrick and Josh Jacobz to very experienced performers such as Marc Malouf, Dan Duggan and Sabrina Lawrie. Other exciting artists include Fingerless and Playboimillionaire.

    From driving rock musicians to quiet reflective folk roots, the central theme is the significance on the song itself and not the genre. Please visit http://onsongaus.com/artists/ to see the diversity.

    URGENT!!
    Hey On Song! I’m a singer-songwriter solo artist and multi-instrumentalist from Perth, Western Australia. I’ve only just now seen your advertisement for the documentary, however I’m very interested in showcasing a couple of my songs in hopes of capturing a spot in your program. I was wondering if this was still possible? If so I’ll record one acoustic and one loop-station-produced demo of my best song and fill out your REGISTER NOW section, adding the link to both videos. Have a great day nonetheless?

      We are still looking Tommy Wayne for material continually. We are not a talent contest or popularity contest. Just follow the submission on this site and submit your material. Best of luck.

    With Song writing I think it is critical to have your theme in place lyrically. Once you know what you are trying to get across theme wise, it is helpful to have a title/ hook or chorus. I find more often than not that once I have those things in place, the song will more or less write itself. As far as 10-15 minutes being wasted, don’t pressure yourself to write until you are in the right mind frame. The best songs have a magical way of writing themselves. Also, we often have to write a fair few not so great tunes to get to the jewels.
