The Brooklyn Songwriters Exchange has been quite the little nomad.

Since forming five years ago, the monthly series featuring up-and-coming songwriters has been at Vox Pop, the Brooklyn Lyceum, and Union Hall. And, starting on Feb. 21, it finds a new home at Pete’s Candy Store.

“I felt like the series had been in Park Slope for a long time and that the people of Williamsburg should have it a little,” said Jason Crosby, who, along with Megan Palmer, has also taken the reins from series founder Rebecca Pronsky, who hits the road next month with a new album.

At the first Pete’s show, Crobsy and Palmer will performs songs off their own EP, “You First.” Dave Diamond and Rachel Zamstein will also perform that night at the intimate venue.

“It’s kind of like playing in a boxcar,” said Palmer.

Going forward, Crobsy and Palmer look to expand the scope of the series, moving away from just acoustics and adding a backing band, as well as offering workshops for the songwriting community.

Brooklyn Songwriter’s Exchange at Pete’s Candy Store [709 Lorimer St. between Richardson and Frost streets in Williamsburg, (718) 302-3770], Feb. 21 at 9:30 pm. Free. For info, visit
