Songwriters Original Showcase - or SOS - is a one-of-a kind acoustic venue for original music that originated in the Philadelphia area in Ambler, PA. Since the first showcase in February 2001, SOS has been providing up-and-coming independent and national recording artists with a premier performance venue. SOS artists are talented songwriters, recording artists, performers and musicians who have commercially available recordings of their music - a requirement for performing at an SOS showcase. SOS artists are also seasoned professionals who are acclaimed in their own right, nurture their fan base, and have a determined, no-nonsense approach to the "business" of their musical careers.

The venue was met with such enthusiasm from artists, radio, print media, music industry professionals, local businesses, and fans of original music in the Philadelphia area that SOS is now taking the venue "on the road" to colleges and venues within other cities. Slot One Studio, the primary sponsor for SOS, books SOS artists, does extensive print media, radio, and Internet promotion for each showcase and digitally films each showcase for re-broadcast to various media outlets.

SOS attracts a wide-range of music fans, from high school students to senior citizens. Music heard at SOS follows the AAA radio format, and includes a range of folk to jazz to pop rock -- all original music performed acoustically by the singer-songwriters who created it!
