International Website and Magazine
Songwriters, musicians, and music enthusiasts trust American Songwriter to be their authentic home for the latest news, information, and coaching from the music industry. Dedicated to the Craft of Music for the past 35 years, American Songwriter is an international website, magazine, and podcast network.
American Songwriter explores all genres of music—Distributed internationally with a heavy USA subscriber base, the readership of American Songwriter is just as diverse as its contents—aspiring to professional songwriters, musicians, music publishers, studio owners, copyright lawyers, record label A&R, and music enthusiasts.
American Songwriter magazine is published bi-monthly. The magazine offers in-depth Q&A’s with up-and-coming, established and legendary songwriters and artists, covers recording technology, including the latest gadgets and gear every songwriter should know about, and reports on the business of music with interviews and insight from publishers, record label executives, producers and other industry professionals.
AmericanSongwriter.com provides much of the same ethos plus daily news reporting, new album reviews, video interviews, in-office video recording sessions, live photos, livestream concerts, business insight, blogs and online exclusive content for aspiring or professional songwriters and serious music enthusiasts. Opinions expressed by contributing writers do not necessarily reflect the views of American Songwriter.
Advertisers include international instrument manufacturers, record labels who want to gain exposure for their artists, publishers who honor writer achievements, demo studios, festivals, conferences, book publishing houses, recording software companies and a select group of non-musical companies who position their product offerings to identify with music culture.
