Corpus Christi Songwriters

Corpus Christi Songwriters - an extension of Corpus Christi PATCH Inc., 501(c)(3) - is dedicated to providing resources, education and a spring-board for local songwriters in the Corpus Christi area.

Founded in 2014, CC Songwriters hosts several events throughout the year - including In The Rounds (an Open Stage for original music only) the second Sunday of EVERY MONTH at House of Rock; Presents: Showcases every three months at House of Rock and The Churchyard; Workshops and Retreats throughout the year, and the Corpus Christi Music Awards & Conference, to be held every February.

CC Songwriters: In The Rounds -

Corpus Christi Songwriters has been on a mission to spread the interest in original music around Corpus Christi and its surrounding areas. Partnering with House of Rock (511 Starr St), the Corpus Christi Songwriters Series was born, and will now be held on the second Sunday of every month on the small stage, creating an intimate environment welcoming new and seasoned songwriters to share their songs with an attentive and engaged audience. Jimmy Willden hosts the series.

The format is simple: each songwriter is allowed to perform two songs (they can be new songs, or old songs, but they must be ORIGINAL songs). Once everyone has shared their songs, stories and inspirations behind them, the cycle will begin again.

CC Songwriters Presents: Showcases

Dedicated to spotlighting some of the best, daring and unique original music, CCSW invites 4-5 regional songwriters to perform every January, April, August and November, rotating between House of Rock and The Churchyard - to of the best live music venues in the Coastal Bend.

CC Songwriters Workshops -

Our organization will sponsor and host three Songwriting Workshops each year, once in February - during the annual Corpus Christi Music Awards & Conference, once in June - as part of our annual Summer Songwriting Retreat, and once in the fall.

We also support the Corpus Christi branch of the Nashville Songwriters Association (NSAi) Workshop/Meeting - held the first Tuesday of every month at The Veranda (Schlitterbahn).

CC Songwriters Retreat

We will host one Summer Songwriting Retreat in June of each year - kicking off on Thursday evening, and culminating with a live concert premiering each new song on Saturday night. The retreat will operate as an artist's haven, and be all-inclusive with meals, lodging and writing materials included in the ticket price.
