The Singer-Songwriter Playlist on YouTube is pretty unusual. For a start, it is a playlist that blends together both mainstream and independent artists. We just wanted to create a playlist of brilliant music, no matter who made it. The question is, did we achieve it? As ever, you will be the judge. Still, we think their song performances are pretty awesome and that’s a good start

We wanted the singer-songwriter playlist to be a thought-provoking collection of songs.  There are so many great songs out there. Many were close, but just not good enough. We hope that you will agree that the end result is an emotional and inspiring playlist!

Over the coming months, we’ll add more songs to this playlist. Not only will that make a longer playlist. It will be even more awesome than it is right now. Is that even possible?

Curated By...

This playlist was created especially for the Independent Music Stage channel on YouTube. As usual, it is curated by the SSUK staff.
