“Amazingly inspiring time on Songwriting Retreat last week with a bunch of very special, creative and supremely talented people. Grammy and Ivor Novello Award winning Mentors with literally millions of record sales to their names to learn from, be encouraged and inspired by. The standard of Songwriting,
Musicianship and Playback Performances was outstanding, and most definitely the best Gigs I have been to for a while…Great banter as well. Love and utmost respect to everybody involved” Stephen
“Starting to recover from my musical Spanish adventure and 35 friends and 60+ songs later I’m left in a state of complete gratitude. This was genuinely one of the best weeks of my life – I learnt a hell of a lot about the craft of writing, the music industry and my own abilities. I danced to live salsa music in the street and had an absolute blast. Couldn’t be more thankful and am so very excited to see what the future brings. My heartfelt thanks to The Songwriting Academy” Charlie

“I had the most amazing week with some of my loveliest friends, whilst making some cracking new friends in a picturesque Moorish village, up in the Andalusian hills near Lake Viñuela.
