The co-publishers THE MUSICBROKERS and Melodie der Welt have invited to a songwriters camp in Hamburg. From June 11 to 13 up to 15 selected authors met to write songs fusing genre specifically for artists from Germany, Denmark, Norway, Australia and Japan. Organized and supervised on site by the Hamburg based music agency THE MUSICBROKERS 14 new songs were written in the long-established Chameleon Studios within three days.
Says Tom Nevermann, THE MUSICBROKERS’ CEO: “It’s always great to watch authors cooperating fully concentrated and enthusiastically in songwriter camps and at the end of the day to listen to fresh and new songs. The teams were diverse – experienced songwriters worked with newcomers; the result of it are always songs with a special touch.” John Ruhrmann, Melodie der Welt’s A&R adds: “We are excited by the results. Top class songs which will definitely find international artists. As publisher we place great value on creating an environment for our authors where they can work constructively and relaxed with new influences. And that’s what the songwriters camp of THE MUSIKBROKERS offered them. The results speaks for thelselves.” Further joint camps are already planned.
