Liverpool Acoustic started life in April 2008 as a website created by Graham Holland as a central resource for the vibrant and exciting acoustic music scene in Liverpool and the Greater Merseyside area. It contains a diary of regular events, previews of gigs, reviews of music releases and gigs, a podcast, and a monthly newsletter.
In February 2009, Graham joined forces with local musician Stuart Todd to launch Liverpool Acoustic Live. This double award winning monthly acoustic music event takes place once a month in Mathew Street’s View Two Gallery and features three or four of the best acoustic performers, singer-songwriters, bands and musicians on the local scene today performing alongside top-class national and international musicians.
- Liverpool Acoustic Presents and Liverpool Acoustic Afternoon are occasional live music events, often run in collaboration with local festivals and promoters.
- Liverpool Acoustic Open Mic @ Sound is their weekly event featuring open mic with a selection of booked acts.
- Liverpool Acoustic Songwriting Challenge is their annual songwriting competition run in conjunction with the View Two Gallery.
