Performing Songwriters Contest

The San Diego Songwriters Guild Performing Songwriters Showcase is a great way to show San Diego what your music is all about.


  • 102.1 KPRi FM Homegrown Hour

the Showcase kicks off with a Listening Session on Tuesday, March 9 at Country Inns & Suites in Sorrento Valley. At this session, we will listen to each artist’s CD submission. Judges will select the top six acts (plus several alternates) to perform at the LIVE Finals, which will take place at the Humphrey’s Backstage Shelter Island, on the evening of  Saturday, April 3, 2010. Performing writers and bands are encouraged to submit their original songs to the Guild for consideration for the showcase. Enter in person at the Listening Session or by mailing your entry form to SDSG with CD & 5 Lyric Sheets of your best song.


The top band, selected at the live finals, will receive:

  • Six-Hour Recording Session from StudiOB92107
  • Radio Airplay courtesy of KPRi Homegrown Hour and
  • $250 from SDSG
  • Guitar from Moze Guitars
  • 30 minute set at Humphrey’s showcase or HOB, their choice.

Submit your entry early and save.

To qualify for the early entry discount, songs must be received by SDSG no later than March 1, 2009. You can enter at the March Listening Session if you can’t mail in your entry. Entries are limited to one per songwriter or team of writers, and all submissions must come from songwriters or bands who are able to perform live, on stage, during the finals. Songs will be accepted the night of the Listening Session, but pre-registered entries will have priority, so early registration is encouraged.
