Musicians routinely find their audiences while playing out on the local music scene. But there’s another layer of song not bound my commercial considerations, created by amateur and semi-pro songwriters who rarely play out.

Pittsburgh Songwriters Circle will release a 25-song compilation album of songs written by non-professional group members at a CD release event.

Working under the auspices of Calliope: The Pittsburgh Folk Music Society, the Songwriters Circle conducts a weekly songwriters’ open stage at Bloomfield Bridge Tavern, holds monthly meetings focused on songcraft, places songwriters in front of audiences and produces this annual compilation album series -- now in its ninth year -- to help to nurture regional songwriters and foster community among artists who are compelled to write songs. Since the project started in 2005, 80 local songwriters have participated in this album series.
