Songsalive! is now the largest internationally based non-profit organization dedicated to nurturing, supporting, educating and promoting songwriters and composers worldwide. Celebrating over 10 years in operation, Songsalive! was founded in 1997 by two Australian artists, Gilli Moon and Roxanne Kiely, who saw the need for a support network for songwriters that could reach the 4 corners of the globe and propel songwriters to the 4 corners of the globe. After 10 years, they have done just that! Established with now over 20 chapters around the world, and over 35 chapter coordinators, Songsalive! is run by volunteer songwriters for songwriters.

Through our grassroots international efforts, we've put a stamp on what "global community" truly is and it's the type of community that is definitely needed in this ever changing music business where songwriting can be a very isolating experience and career.

We provide a "home", a family, for songwriters and composers through our programs, resources, community and support, all focused on the art and business of songwriting. Through Songsalive!, songs and songwriters can be accessed by the whole world and when the hunt is on, Songsalive! is a one-stop song shop!

We run our own programs and events for songwriters, and also act as an umbrella, or a link in the chain, for songwriters to know and find out other events, resources and support centers for them, globally.
