Over the month of September this year, I got together once a week over a zoom chat with a bunch of songwriters young and old to complete the very first “Kav Virtual Songwriters” course. We had people in Melbourne (in the middle of lockdown) as well Tasmania and Western Australia. At the end of the month we had written two songs together both of which we then turned into a “scratch demo” recording. Some people sent in recordings they’d recorded in their home studio’s whilst others sent in their final vocals recorded on an iPhone, I then put all these tracks together in my studio in Fremantle and I’m happy to say you can now listen to the final product on Soundcloud.
This project was a huge success not only because the songs are great but because this was an important outlet for everyone involved. We proved that you can write and remotely collaborate no matter where you live in the world.
I want to say a huge thank you to The Australian Arts Council, without their help none of this would have been possible. And also to Mitch, Mike, Evie, Sophia and Aaron who wrote these beautiful songs during one of the weirdest years of all of our lives.
Stay tuned for the next workshop and feel free to DM us if you have any queries.
Many Thanks, Kav
