Notting Hill and Tileyard team up for songwriter camp

Notting-Hill-Music-logoIndie publisher Notting Hill Music has teamed up with Tileyard Studios and BMI to host its biggest ever songwriting camp.

The event involved 38 songwriters and producers from the UK, LA, Tokyo, Copenhagen, Oslo and Dublin, who worked in 15 studios at the Tileyard HQ in Kings Cross, London.

Over the course of three days more than 50 songs were written and are now ready for pitching.

Notting Hill Music’s John Saunderson, who organised the event, said: ‘We recently concluded an administration deal with Tileyard Music Publishing, so it was a no brainer for us to join forces with the Tileyard team to create what we believe to be one of the largest songwriter camps ever.’

‘Charlie Arme and Jason Sharpe (Tileyard Music Publishing) have taken to our song pitching approach so well. They have built a faultless system. I send out a brief and within the hour we’re pitching 10 songs from them.

‘This approach has secured a number of high profile placements throughout the world already and we hope the songs from this camp are the next ones to be placed.’

Arme added: ‘Organising a camp of this size is not for the faint-hearted, but we intend to organise more. They are the perfect way to bring songwriters together who wouldn’t necessarily have worked with each other’.

The camp took place from 1 to 3 September. The next one takes place on 28 October at Tileyard Studios with GL Publishing.
