David Corbell lands Radio 2 Record Of The Week for Dame Shirley Bassey

David Corbell didn’t really know whether his dream of becoming a professional songwriter was possible. We showed him it was, and through our training, 1-2-1 sessions and networking opportunities, David got his very first song placement with the world famous Dame Shirley Bassey, reaching Number 5 on the official UK charts, being added to the BBC Radio 2 A-list as well as becoming BBC Radio 2 Record Of The Week.

David told us:

“Before The Songwriting Academy, I was trying to find my way into music and wasn’t sure what, if anything, would come from my efforts. But thanks to The Songwriting Academy, I discovered a plethora of knowledge to share, a community of supportive people to collaborate with, and the confidence to achieve the goal of becoming a professional songwriter. Without you, I wouldn’t be where I am today. So from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU!

Jack McNeilage hits 30 Million Streams

Jack joined The Songwriting Academy with no track record. Following a year of learning, developing and networking with our elite mentoring team,  he is writing full time for world famous record producers, getting over 30 million streams on the music he is having released around the world. He has signed a publishing deal with one of the UK’s biggest independent music publishers, whom he met through The Songwriting Academy. This was followed quickly by  a management deal, then a record  deal. He is now a much sought after writer and performer and spends every day living his dream. At a recent gig, 7 of his songs were performed live to 24,000 people.


Jack told us:

“I met some really inspiring people in the mentors, they’re some of the loveliest people you’ll meet. I can’t believe how much I learnt…I did a four year degree and I learnt more in the first week of The Songwriting Academy than I did at Uni, and that’s not even an exaggeration. Genuinely thanks so much for The Songwriting Academy experience, it’s been amazing.”
