The House of Songs Founder Troy Campbell
The House of Songs Founder and renowned musician Troy Campbellestablished the collaborative in 2009 as a songwriter exchange that draws artists from diverse cultural backgrounds to collaborate, form friendships and join a network that helps them share music worldwide. In 2017, Campbell applied to have The House of Songs become a nonprofit, and a year later in spring of 2018, the organization was approved to become a 501c3. As a nonprofit, The House of Songs seeks to foster mutually beneficial relationships and a greater understanding of diverse cultures and common humanity with the act of sharing music.
“A Songwriters Farewell to Threadgill’s World Headquarters” will also serve as the public launch of one of The House of Songs most recent endeavors, the ATX P2P, which focuses on regional artists collaborating in The House of Songs Austin to create, build a better network and to share audiences.
“Since the conception of The House Of Songs, Threadgill’s world headquarters has been a great partner and perfect venue for showcasing not only the songwriters we work with, but it has been crucial to the growth and development of Austin’s songwriting community, from the days of The Armadillo to now,” said The House of Songs Artist Manager Graham Weber.“We are sad to see the venue go, but with this event we want to honor the tradition and history on that hallowed ground and showcase some of our city’s finest talent that are keeping the craft, that our community holds so dear, alive with a bright future ahead.”
