The 35th annual Frank Brown International Songwriters' Festival will take place November 7th - 17th, 2019 in approximately 30 venues on the Alabama/Florida Gulf Coast. 

We are looking for individual songwriters to perform their own original music. 

The Opportunity

Our festival consists of songwriters singing their own original music, hence; there are great opportunities in meeting other songwriters to collaborate and co-write with while attending the festival. Two weekends of the festival, there are songwriters workshops.

Headquarters for the Festival will be the world-famous Fora-Bama Lounge, Package and Oyster Bar on Perdido Key, FL. Over 200 Grammy award-winning and up and coming songwriters will be featured.
