Performing Songwriter Mag Closes Shop

Posted By on Wed, Jun 3, 2009 at 3:32 PM


Another music mag has folded.

Performing Songwriter, which started 16 years ago as a publication aimed at singer-songwriter types and their fans, recently published its June issue. It was just announced that this would be its last.

Like all music magazines — the late Blender, Rolling Stone, etc. — Performing Songwriter struggled to maintain an identity in the Pitchfork/free-web-reads era. The most recent cover featured noted singer-songwriter Pink. Sagging sales didn't help matters.
