Songwriters on the Waterfront - Mondos

> Terry Doyle Songwriters on the Waterfront

I head down to "Songwriters on the Waterfront" at Mondos Cafe and Bar - uptown in Cairns hosted by Terry Doyle on many a Thursday night.

Songwriters on the Waterfront has been going for some seven (7) years now. Each week Terry kicks the night off with a set of his own songs before songwriters are showcased with their own home grown tunes. "Originals Only" is what it is all about and Terry had always been adament about that.

Terry provides a nurturing environment, mentoring and showcasing the singer songwriters. He has always been such a great advocate for original music here in the north, having mentored a number of young artists before they've gone on to follow their own career in music.

It's a fantastic place to come and listen to the original music of emerging artists and young up and coming performers. If you are a songwriter yourself or know of someone who is a songwriter this is a great place for songwriters to come to get songs heard within the context of supportive peers and restaurant patrons.

I made some appearances initially at Mondos along with Jim McCabe as Silktones. This was when they were first getting into performing. Following the Queensland Festival Song Trails in 2012, I conspired with fellow attendee - Melinda Irvine and we made a plan to meet up regularly at "Songwriters on the Waterfront" to showcase our songs.

I created my debut CD produced by Terry Doyle at Grumpy Old Man Studios. Mondos was the perfect location for me to launch my CD which I did in December 2012.

Shirl's CD was the 18th Singer Songwriter CD launched by Terry Doyle.
