The Alberta Songwriter Challenge

The Third Annual Songwriting Camp for professional songwriters in Alberta returned to OCL Studios, just outside of Calgary, to conduct a three-day songwriting camp. Nine candidates were selected and organized into groups of three to collaborate on two to three demo-ready songs. The camp also provided an opportunity to network and establish permanent collaborative partnerships.
