SG:SW I Write The Songs is a Nationwide Mandarin-Pop Song Writing Festival, providing a platform to uncover local music talents and cultivate the next generation of original music talents.
In 2017, Composers & Authors Society of Singapore (COMPASS) and Ocean Butterflies Music (OB Music) embarked on a journey to uncover local music talents and cultivate the next generation of original music talents.
Last year, we welcomed Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre (SCCC) to join us as a co-organizer of SG:SW2018 I Write The Songs. SCCC aims to nurture and promote Singapore Chinese culture, and to foster mutual understanding among all ethnic communities of our multicultural heritage, which aligns well with our Festival direction.
SG:SW I Write The Songs is not about competition, but to build a supportive community of homegrown talents and provide a prominent and iconic platform to discover outstanding original songs written by our locals.
This year, organized by Composers & Authors Society of Singapore (COMPASS), Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre (SCCC) and Ocean Butterflies Music, the festival continues to aim to provide a platform for new and emerging songwriters to showcase their original work and network with fellow songwriters and industry professionals.
Have you been writing songs? Or have an interest in writing songs? Come and take part in this Festival and you may be the next hit-maker for the regional market!
