SONGHUBS SEMINAR SERIES

Next week we have a whole group of amazing songwriters, producers, and engineers coming to Auckland as part of the SongHubs Auckland 2019. This includes not only our own kiwi talent, but international guests with a wealth of expertise to pass on. We want them be able to share their knowledge with as many members as possible, so we're holding two free evening seminars.

The first will see Calgary native Jenna Andrews in conversation with head of APRA Member Services Victoria Kelly, on Wednesday 6th March at Bank Space in Grey Lynn. Doors at 6.30pm, seminar starts at 7pm. 

As someone who was signed to a major label as a singer/songwriter, Jenna is familiar with the trials and tribulations faced by recording artists in achieving their vision. She is an expert vocal producer, executive producer and arranger, lending the collaborative skills of a songwriting mentor/partner to songs with Drake, Dua Lipa, Banks, Jennifer Lopez and Jessie J.

Jenna is an exclusive consultant for industry veteran Barry Weiss’ RECORDS label, her partner in their just-announced joint publishing venture Twentyseven Music at Sony/ATV, where she has her own deal as a songwriter. Jenna brings a unique perspective from both sides of the coin to the SongHubs Seminar series, balancing her role as an A&R/artist development executive and an artist herself.


Please RSVP to nz@apra.co.nz with 'Jenna Andrews Seminar' in the subject line in order to secure your spot. Places are limited.

The second seminar will concentrate on the songwriting process itself, with Los Angeles based songwriters Nate Campany and Maize Olinger discussing songwriting styles, and collaboration in a changing music industry. The seminar will be held on Thursday 7 March at Bank Space in Grey Lynn. Doors at 6.30pm, seminar starts at 7pm.

 
Nate and Maize have some incredible writing credits to their names, both with a rich history of collaboration with major artists.

Nate co-wrote ‘This Time Around’ on Tove Lo’s platinum selling album ‘Queen of the Clouds’, 4 songs on Carly Rae Jepsen’s critically acclaimed album ‘Emotion’ and LP’s ‘Lost On You’ which was #1 in 27 countries. He also co-wrote Martin Garrix’s ‘Scared to be Lonely’ feat. Dua Lipa which went 3 times platinum in worldwide sales, and the #1 US Latin airplay Becky G x Natti Natasha song ‘Sin Pijama’. 

Maize Olinger is foremost a co-writer and singer in the band Night Things with Zach Shields, former half of ANTI signed band Dead Man’s Bones. Since signing with Greg Kurstin she’s devoted most of the last 12 months to honing her skills as a writer in both her artist project with producer Wendy Wang, and collaborations with MoZella, Kamandi, Sam Wilkes of Cutty Gold, and Mr Little Jeans.
