American Songwriter Magazine

By MAZ Digital Inc.

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.



American Songwriter magazine is published bi-monthly. The magazine offers in-depth Q & A’s with up-and-coming, established and legendary songwriters, articles on technology, including the latest gadgets and gear every songwriter should know about, and reports on the business of music publishing with interviews and insight from publishers, producers and other industry professionals.

American Songwriter explores all genres of music, from country to hip-hop, folk to classical, rock to pop, blues to electronica and soul to r&b. Over the years, cover subjects have included Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Neil Young, Wilco, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, John Mellencamp, Paul McCartney, Beck, Dolly Parton, R.E.M., Weezer, Death Cab for Cutie, Ryan Adams, Merle Haggard, Tom Petty and many more.

Distributed internationally with a heavy domestic subscriber base, the readership of American Songwriter is just as diverse as its contents—professional to aspiring songwriters, music fans to music publishers, studio owners, copyright lawyers, record label presidents to music consumers.

Advertisers include national instrument manufacturers, record companies who want to gain exposure for their artists, publishers who honor writer achievements, demo studios, recording software companies and a select group of non-musical companies who position their product offerings to identify with music culture.

“A great, great magazine!” (Kris Kristofferson)
