EMI Music Publishing’s second European Songwriting Camp is kicking off today for one week in Berlin.
Songwriters from eleven countries are gathering at guitar giant Gibson’s Berlin showrooms. The camp assembles a diverse congregation of writers who will work together on a series of projects.
EMI Music Publishing Continental Europe President & CEO Peter Ende commented: “Bringing together songwriters from across national boundaries and musical genres helps us to bring something new to the creative mix, and I know that long-standing artistic relationships will be forged as a result of the camp. I’m looking forward to hearing the results, and hopefully helping our writers achieve further creative and commercial success.”
Writers attending EMI Music Publishing’s European Songwriting Camp include Lina & Marten Eriksson (Sweden), Maleko (France), Luis Oliveira (Portugal), Max Zanotti (Italy), Jeroen Swinnen (Belgium), FarHot (Germany), Lars Quang (Denmark), Big Dawg (Netherlands), Ashley Hicklin (UK), Ginger Mackenzie (USA) and Rod Davies (Australia).
Representatives from major labels and artists looking to co-write songs for forthcoming albums are all scheduled to attend the seven day songwriting event.
