The ASC was founded in early 2007 by Lisa Butler after she attended a songwriter conference in the USA to learn more about her craft. Frustrated by the lack of education and opportunities for songwriters in Australia (and never one to say no to a challenge), Lisa set about developing a concept that would educate, inspire and support songwriters of all genres. Taking inspiration from the overseas events she attended, then adding components that she, as a songwriter, felt were important and relevant to the Australian industry, Lisa created an event that many attendees have coined ‘Song Writer Heaven’.
Lisa has always been a writer in one form or another. She wrote poetry as a child and turned to song writing in her teens, eventually winding up in the music industry. Aside from organising the ASC, from time to time Lisa also runs music career workshops and song writer seminars.
2012/13 saw Lisa writing and publishing her inspirational self-help book titled The Constitution of the United States of Being. Affectionately known as the CUSB, it is available in paperback and eBook on Amazon, in a few local book stores and via her website.
A professional Life, Career & Motivational Coach, Lisa assists her clients to define their goals and overcome their personal roadblocks through individual coaching sessions, group workshops and seminars – all based on the principles found in her book.
Lisa is also an accomplished poet, and a number of her poems appear on cards and in book anthologies through Blue Mountain Press, the Colorado-based international publishing company.
