Special Chicago Songwriters Collective Member Discount To A Groundbreaking Songwriter Event

This past February Indie Connect hosted the IC Virtual Music Conference and Expo. It was the world’s first global music conference to be held exclusively online in a virtual environment. What that means is that no one had to battle with outrageous plane, hotel, meal and ticket prices. 500 artists and industry professionals from over 25 countries participated.just by logging in to their computers from their own home, office, or studio. The event featured 40 speaker presentations, a trade show with 65 business and artist exhibitors, live showcases and a whole lot of networking. The overall response was extremely positive, with many participants calling it the 'music conference of the future.'.

Based on the success of that groundbreaking event, they are hosting the IC Virtual Songwriter Showcase on September 21- 22, 2013. It will be similar in structure to the previous event, but will also include numerous opportunities to pitch songs to reputable publishers, music supervisors, producers and artists. The event will also include pro song evaluations. Over 1000 participants from all around the globe are expected to participate.

We are happy to announce that we have partnered with Indie Connect to provide you with discount prices on both business and songwriter booths in the trade show as well as general attendance. These prices are only good through June 14, 2013, and are not available to the general public. To check out the conference and/or purchase your booth or ticket, just click on the conference banner above.


I'm already signed up and I think a lot of you will do the same after you look at what is happening.  Some 10 years ago a number of us in the Collective went down to Nashville for a songwriting seminar weekend.  I had to take a day off of work, pay for hotels and meals, and have an 18 hour round trip drive.  And it was worth it.  But this is way, way more convenient, economical, and offers a lot of great opportunities.   

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Have an amazing day!
