Wazoo Baden-Powell

I had the incredible opportunity to attend Luke Concannon’s songwriting weekend, Ecstatic Song, which was due to a partial scholarship from his partnership with The Midi Music Company. It was an interactive and inspiring weekend. It gave some time to focus on my craft while gaining positive insight from those who are very established in their field. Luke’s course taught me to listen more honestly to what I am making and to realise the importance of simplicity. There was also a master with Ed Sheeran which was incredible – his mantra and focus on graft made me feel very excited to be an artist in the 21st century. I would heavily recommend the course to anyone who wants to develop their career in songwriting.
