SXSW Songs: The Current State of Songwriting

Mar 15, 2017

3:30pm – 4:30pm CT

Today’s most successful songs are often the result of a dynamic creative collaboration process between a team of songwriters, producers, topliners and performers. A select group of writers and producers from around the world met during SXSW Interactive for a rare song camp experience at Austin’s Arlyn Studios that featured some of SXSW Music’s standout artists. Participants were chosen by an international roster of renown publishing companies and production houses that included Because Music (France), Budde Music (Germany), Native Tongue (Australia), Prescription Music (US), Stereoscope Music Scandinavia (Sweden), and Tileyard Music (UK).
