ASCAP's London-based VP of Membership, Seán Devine, was asked to take part in the first of this year's songwriting master class series hosted by City Showcase. City Showcase is a not-for-profit yearround festival of new music, responsible for breaking some of the best names into the industry since 2003. It provides a year-round platform for new and emerging artists.
The panel was comprised of Seán Devine, music producer Paul Tipler (Idlewild, Transglobal Underground), songwriter Tim Fraser (Tina Turner, Lulu) and artist and producer Julian Hinton (Trevor Horn). The panel was very practical and offered advice on turning good structure into great structure, the power of the lyric, as well as a passionate discussion on the differences between a demo and a master recording.
This panel was the first of three, and the next two will cover more commercial aspects of songwriting. For more information, visit www.cityshowcase.co.uk
