We are the premier songwriters circle based in Washington, D.C.! Originally called Washington Singers & Songwriters Circle, the group was founded by Tamara Kim at the age of 16 in 2009.

CONNECT with fellow performing and nonperforming songwriters, composers, lyricists, producers, and arrangers. You'll inspire and be inspired by other original and supportive artists like yourself.

During more-or-less monthly "circles," you'll have the opportunity to perform your original songs and get feedback from other members on how you might polish each song; sometimes, we'll discuss relevant issues, such as collaboration, song structure, performance, and technology.

During occasional Songwriter Jams, you'll get the chance to teach other singer- and musician-songwriters a couple of your songs, and then play them together. This will give you an idea of what your song will sound like in a band setting, as well as a sense of what other instruments and techniques you can incorporate into your song, such as for the stage or studio. (It's not to form a band like Flashband.)

If you're interested in Sharing, Networking, and Growing as a performing or nonperforming songwriter, composer, lyricist, arranger, or producer, this group is for you.

We look forward to Hearing you,

Damien Kerrick, Organizer
