Then a raft of songwriters will be on hand to talk of their experiences writing the songs that have made them among New Zealand's favourites - including Jamie McDell, Jordan Luck, Iva Lamkum, Paul McLaney and Shayne Carter.

The Official Music Month Summit is being held this Saturday at the Auckland Museum Auditorium from 11am, Southern Atrium entrance. Anyone wanting to attend can just rock up - or flick an email to rsvp@nzmusic.org.nz to secure a seat.
