Song-writing is a personal and emotional storytelling craft. In this unique workshop/music launch event for indie song-writers, you will hear fresh music and learn the key steps in taking your songs from idea to recording to publicity strategy and product.
This will be a unique and instructive workshop suited to song-writers who are keen to take their craft to the next step by learning tips and perspectives from emerging and established songwriters, producers, designers, publicists and digital music marketers.
This workshop is for songwriters, bands, performers and people interested in local song production and distribution.

Oh, we'll also be whipping up Mexican food for dinner and beers supplied by Young Henrys.
