Sweden’s residential course for songwriters is back with a greater capacity and a chance to get feedback from top A&Rs

Stockholm Songwriting Camp is back in Sweden for its third anniversary and with a greater capacity. On the 29 January to 2 February, songwriters and producers from 12 different countries gather in Stockholm to create and network. This year the event will be extended by an extra writing day and the initiatives SC Talks and SC Feedback Sessions broadened with an international focus.

After Paris and London, Stockholm Songwriting Camp is back at Pop House in Stockholm, and this year’s camp is the largest yet, with 45 of the world’s brightest writers and producers taking part, including: Maegan Cottone, Era Istrefi, NEIKED, SHY Martin, KREAM, MADDEN, Tamas Molnar, Hitimpulse, Ana Diaz and more. Participants are behind tracks for artists like Katy Perry, Sam Smith, Lorde, The Chainsmokers, Zara Larsson, Ed Sheeran, Icona Pop and Adam Lambert.

SC Talks is this year expanded with a larger audience capacity, global perspective and international participants. One topic focus at this year’s event is on women producers, with Jan Gradvall moderating panel with Cindy Lee, UK producer Raphaella and American producer-engineer Ebonie Smith. Also on the agenda is a look at Swedish music education, how musicians can reach out via YouTube, as well as an interview with songwriting duo Shy — made up of Sara Hjellström and Nirob Islam (aka Shy Martin and Shy Nodi, respectively).

This year’s SC Feedback Sessions – an initiative where up and coming songwriters have a chance to get constructive feedback from top Swedish A&Rs – is growing past Swedish borders, adding music makers from areas including Kosovo, Hungary, USA and Australia. Feedback is given on the 29 January and submission can be made via songwritingcamps.com/sc-initiatives/sc-feedback-sessions
