LISTEN TO THE MUSIC: Songs Selected!

"There is music and there is everything else," - Sam Phillips, Sun Records.
The S³ listening panels will provide a unique opportunity for songwriters to have their music heard and discussed by a panel of music boffins. Our panelists include a range of songwriters, publishers, managers, broadcasters, producers and A & R professionals.

Twelve songs and their writers have been selected for the four Listen to the Music panels. Click here to view a full list of panelists and songs/songwriters to be reviewed.

PLAY THE MUSIC: Showcase performers announced!

As an extension of the Listen to the Music panels, our delegates were also given the opportunity to submit for a showcase performance slot at S³. Over 200 submissions were received for the Listen to the Music panels, and the job to select only three Play the Music performers was excruciatingly difficult due to the extremely high standard of songs submitted.

We would like to congratulate all that submitted for the Listen to the Music | Play the Music with special congratulations to Jessica Paige, Microwave Jenny and Happenstance for being chosen to perform the Play the Music showcase on Thursday evening.

Kate Haddock (Partner- Bank Haddock Fiora); Jules Munro (Partner - Simpson's Solicitors); Matt Hutchison (SWAT Enterprises - Singapore); Paul Mac (Songwriter/artist); Brendan Gallagher (Songwriter/Artist - Karma County); Jeremy Fabinyi (MD - MCPS); Brothablack (Songwriter/Artist); and Ursula Yovich (Songwriter/Actor).
