SMSWF Stage Spots are a niche for those songwriters who want to invest in their own songwriting career.   Stage Spots did not come from a desire to charge songwriters to play. Many songwriters, who did not like to compete, asked us if they could simply purchase a stage spot. The SMSWF obliged them.  The thanks and response we have had from those who purchase a stage spot let’s us know the SMSWF Stage Spots are a benefit to songwriters.

Gospel Submissions given priority for Sunday Stage Spots.

The audition committee consists of people from businesses such as performance venues, clubs, bars, restaurants, radio producers, publishers, record label companies, choral and music teachers as well as simply music lovers.   Members of the audition committee will rate each submission on a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being the highest score possible).  The rating question being asked is how would you rate this person as someone you would like to listen to for 30 minutes?  Each song will receive a score from five different judges.

Any questions please contact us at info@smswf.com or 865-604-9066.
