How To Audition for Songsmiths (long version)

Grab your instrument and a video camera and record yourself playing an original song. Post your video on the Songsmiths Facebook Page and tag it with #SongsmithsSA. If you’re worried about data usage, just record one verse and a chorus. Alternatively, record sound only and submit your audio with a photo (we don’t care how you look, we just want photos on our page). We will review all submissions and choose the best artists to develop further.

If you already have a music video, simply post a link. Same Facebook page and # as above. Don’t forget that you can also record your audition video in our recording studio in Northcliff, Johannesburg for free if you want the benefit of a professional recording environment. Artists that record their auditions in-studio will not get preferential treatment, but they will get a little more exposure online. . .and a better video to share with their friends.

By submitting an audition video, you agree to these Terms and Conditions.
