About SongHubs Auckland

SongHubs Auckland is a collaborative song-writing initiative presented by APRA AMCOS with the generous support of our friends at NZ On Air, the New Zealand Music Commission, Auckland Council and Recorded Music New Zealand.
In just three years we’ve brought 15 international guests to Auckland, connected more than 70 New Zealand and Australian writers and producers, and witnessed the creation of over 80 original songs. The impressive list of SongHubs releases includes 'Kind of Love' by Maala, 'Addict' by Louis Baker, 'All The Ways to Say Goodbye' by Mitch James, and 'Pitch Dark' by Chelsea Jade.

This year we are incredibly excited to welcome international guests Maize Olinger, Nate Campany, and Jenna Andrews, to Auckland for the SongHubs week. 


Maize Olinger, originally from Los Angeles California, is 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.



Nate Campany is a US songwriter from Cleveland, Ohio.  He 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’. 


Jenna Andrew is a songwriter, vocal producer, and A&R consultant for Barry Weiss' 'RECORDS' label. Jenna is an acclaimed vocal producer, executive producer and arranger, while lending the collaborative skills of a songwriting mentor/partner and the acumen of an A&R/artist development executive to each project she touches. Jenna’s list of songwriting collaborators and creative partners includes Drake, Dua Lipa, Tori Kelly, Jessie J, Banks, and Jennifer Lopez as well as producers Doc McKinney, Noah 40 Shebib, Diplo, DJ Mustard, Max Martin and Stargate, to name a few.
