Stay tuned for details of our open mic nights DURING SongStudio 2015 and starting again in the fall of 2015.

Every summer we spend a wonderfully exhausting SongStudio week together with friends old and new, diving into the journey of songwriting.  Then, we do it again, a year later.

That’s a long time in between.

As a first step towards seeing each other more frequently, we have launched a series of monthly Open Mics to reunite SongStudio participants and invite others into our community.

Our first Open Mic in the series was held a few days before Christmas 2014, with a fabulous turnout, and we’ve been going strong ever since.  January’s open mic saw several new faces, songwriters who dropped in to see what we’re about, and share their songs with us, including one from Sault Ste. Marie and another from Nashville!

Upcoming Open Mics will be held at C’est What, 67 Front St. East in Toronto, on:

– Sunday, May 17, 7:00pm-10:00pm

Sign-up each night begins 30 minutes before the start of the open mic, on a first-come, first-served with one notable exception – SongStudio participants, from past workshops and those registered for future workshops, can sign-up IN ADVANCE!  We want to welcome all songwriters with open arms, but want to give a bonus to those who have been (or will be) with us at SongStudio.

To sign up in advance (workshop participants only), send a message to, and let me know in which hour you’d like to play: 1st hour, 2nd hour, or 3rd hour.
