The Experience

Involvement with the House of Songs, whether as a musician or sponsor, gives members access to a unique opportunity unlike any other collaborative program. Work with dedicated and experienced board of leaders, and make a wealth of new musical experiences and connections in both Austin and Northwest Arkansas. 

Get Involved

Whether you're a musician, a songwriter, an industry professional or simply curious about our mission, there's a place for you to get involved at the House. For some musicians, extended residencies offer the broadest experience. If you're near either of our houses, we're always seeking local co-writers to work with residents and perform at shows. If you're in the Austin area, our exciting new peer-to-peer program may offer a chance to deepen your ties with the Live Music Capital of America. As the House continues to grow and evolve, the insight, connections and support of industry leaders is a vital part of building and shaping the House's future. Any of these sound like you? Connect with us to learn more.
