Mission of Acoustic Nights Montreal
The mission of Acoustic Nights Montreal is to promote independent artists and local singer-songwriters. This volunteer-based organization was founded in 2009 by Melina Soochan, an established musician and singer-songwriter herself.
The ANM Series is a bimonthly showcase featuring up-and-coming musicians in Montreal. The goal of the Series is to give exposure to local artists of various genres, and to promote fair play and fair pay in the industry. There have been 10 chapters in the series since inception. The ANM Series of showcases is on hiatus for the time being.
In 2011, Acoustic Nights expanded into the youth sector, encouraging teen musicians to develop their songwriting and performance skills through the introduction of the annual ANM Teen Songwriting Competition.
