The Real Songwriters of Melbourne (RSOM) is a space for both songwriters and music lovers to come together to celebrate, support and develop the emerging songwriters of Melbourne. No matter age, genre or experience level, RSOM invites all songwriters to be part of its community.
The Real Songwriters of Melbourne was established in 2014 by performer and media professional Jena Marino. The idea was born from a passion to help emerging songwriters in the Melbourne music scene to enter the spotlight and to share their music to a new and wider audience.
SINCE THE BEGINNING, RSOM HAS PROVIDED MANY PATHWAYS FOR ARTISTS TO FLOURISH INCLUDING INTERVIEWS, LIVE PERFORMANCE OPPORTUNITIES (RSOM LIVE), MEDIA AND RELEASE CAMPAIGNS AND NETWORKING NIGHTS. THROUGHOUT ITS TIME, IT HAS HAD THE PLEASURE OF WORKING WITH MANY OF MELBOURNE’S FINEST SONGWRITERS THROUGHOUT THEIR DEVELOPING STAGES INCLUDING ABBEY STONE, RYA PARK, ESSIE HOLT, EMILIA, AND NYUON.
AS THE INDUSTRY REBUILDS, RSOM CONTINUES TO BE A LEADER IN SUPPORTING THE EMERGING SONGWRITERS OF MELBOURNE.
