There are hundreds of Australian artists and bands that have websites. It is beyond the scope and mission of this Guitarsite to link to them all. On this page are just a few of the sites that have come to our attention.
Songsalive! is a nonprofit organization, based in Australia, but now with an office in Los Angeles. It supports and promotes songwriters. We run FREE songwriting workshops every second week in LA ( donation only) and FREE to members in Sydney. How can you get better than that! It's all about feedback, networking and meeting professionals. The workshops are designed around critiquing songs in an intimate and informal situation. It's not a school, it's a professional environment.
Songsalive! also produces CD Samplers that go to all the music conventions around the world, provide showcase opportunities, offer studio support, and distribute regular newsletters, called Songnotes!, which gives you all the info you need on what's happening in the songwriting business internationally.
