Mission

The EPSWC convenes to encourage, promote and honor the song-writing talents of El Paso's musicians.   We do so by providing a dedicated venue and competition event, where musicians can showcase their original works to a public audience and expose it to other professionals for  feedback and acclaim.  We believe, that by promoting the craft of song-writing in such a manner, it will galvanize El Paso's song-writing community;  foster confidence and spirit for all musicians, who engage in the song-writing craft.

Tip: What are we looking for in a winning  song?/

  • It should tell a story, or convey theme or specific thought.
  • It should be 'tuneful' and have melody, distinct rythym and meter.
  • It should have elements of structure, containing Intros, verse, chorus, bridges, middles and outros. (or parts thereof)
  • It should not be longer than 4 minutes.
  • It should stay in keeping with its declared genre. 
  • Finally, (and most important) it should have your heart into it...becuse that's where the magic really starts... (catchiness begins with one heart, that compells many other hearts to align themelves as one.)

These tips are not written in stone, but they will surely help.
