Third songwriting and music production residency coming in March
Pro7ect (pronounced Project 7) is taking over the Hotel Pelirocco in Brighton, to help musicians, producers and songwriters make new and inspired collaborations.
Applicants accepted onto the 2016 retreat will have the rare opportunity to work with the likes of Liam Howe (Songwriter/ Producer) who has produced everyone from Marilyn Manson to Lana Del Ray and Jessie Ware. Bristol-based producer Stew Jackson, whose signature groove-based sound has seen him work with Massive Attack, will also be in attendance. Andrew Levy will bring even more creativity. Best known as the bass player for The Brand New Heavies, Andrew is also a proficient songwriter, keyboard player and producer.
Rounding off the line up are the three Pro7ect ‘House Producers’ Ian Wallman, an Ivor Novello nominated producer/composer who has worked with the likes of Beyonce, Calvin Harris, Michael Bublé and Lady Gaga. He will be joined by Lisa Fitzgibbon (published author, singer-songwriter/producer and Pro7ect’s founder) and Jon Fletcher a singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer.
The venue, Hotel Pelirocco, is located just opposite Brighton's iconic West Pier, which has seen the likes of Happy Mondays, Primal Scream, Scissor Sisters, New Order, Chrissie Hynde and Chemical Brothers pass through its doors. The Hotel will run its third annual Songwriting and Music Production Week alongside Pro7ect.
The hotel creates four pop-up studios, supported by PMC, Audio Technica, Focusrite and G7th capos, bringing together musicians and songwriters who want to broaden their networks and experience the contemporary creative approach of working in writing teams, to deadlines, in a collaborative, residential environment — replicating the method that built the Brill Building, Motown, Stax and the other legendary songwriting hothouses.
