APRA have just announced their SONGHUBS program for 2017, full details below:
“Our week long SONGHUBS program is on the horizon, due to kick off in three weeks, and once again we will also be hosting evening seminars which will provide an opportunity for all our members to come and hear our international guests speak about their songwriting and careers.
This year we're lucky to have three very impressive songwriter guest speakers:
- Tuesday Feb 28: Mike Elizondo, one of Eminem's key co-writers, who has also worked with artists as diverse as Jay-Z, Fiona Apple, Mastodon, Sleigh Bells, Tegan & Sarah, and Kiwi stars Kimbra and Gin Wigmore.
- Wednesday March 1: Emily Warren, a rising talent who has co-written hit songs with The Chainsmokers, Jessie J, Shawn Mendez and more. Emily will be speaking specifically about her experiences as a young woman in the music industry.
- Thursday March 2: James Newman, co-writer with Rudimental, DC Breaks, and Little Mix.
We're very excited to have three such prestigious guests coming to New Zealand to share their knowledge and inspire local songwriters. As such, we want as many people as possible to be able to come along, and we're hoping to hold the seminars outside the office to allow for a bigger audience.
The location and exact time for the seminars is to be confirmed asap - keep an eye on our website or Facebook for details.
If you'd like to come along, RSVP is essential, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the sessions you would like to attend. There are limited places of course, so be speedy if you want to guarantee a spot.”
