ABOUT CORPUS CHRISTI SONGWRITERS
Corpus Christi Songwriters’ sole purpose is to promote, foster and enhance original music in the Coastal Bend. Founded in 2014, CC Songwriters’ focus is to provide resources, education, and a springboard for local songwriters in the Corpus Christi area.
Why the emphasis on songwriting?
It’s a good question and an important one to ask. Think about all of the times your spirit was moved, your life was made better, your perspective shifted because you heard a great song. Not just any song — a song that reached down into your guts and connected with you on a personal level.
Songwriters are an important part of our community because they tell our community’s story. Whether it’s a universal truth or a song filled with local color, these artists help paint a picture of our lives… lingering long after the last note.
During a time when the world feels so divided, songwriting is the great connector.
One of the most important resources we have is our local network of sponsors and partners. We are working with small businesses, local artisans, and arts-oriented corporations to create a backbone of support as we seek out and nurture the many songwriters in our very own communities.

A YEAR OF TRANSITION
CC Songwriters (CCSW) has exciting developments in store for 2024. This year marks a transitional year as the organization moves away from a long-term partnership with CC PATCH to become its own 501c3 organization. This change will help CC Songwriters strategically grow and better support its mission to promote, foster and enhance original music in the Coastal Bend.
CCSW recently received IRS 501(c)(3) designation as a nonprofit organization; donations to CCSW and CCSW Festival may be considered as tax-deductible donations. Plans for the fifth year of the CC Songwriters Festival are underway, and CCSW is looking for community partners that are committed to growing this flagship event as a national draw for fans of live music. With its fantastic line-up and multiple intimate listening experiences in Corpus Christi best music venues, the 2024 CC Songwriters Festival will help solidify Corpus Christi as a music-friendly city.
