Starstruck Writer’s Group and Holy Graffiti hosted the NashPop Songwriter Camp recently in Nashville, where a group of songwriters from Nashville, New York and Los Angeles penned 73 crossover songs in eight days.

Writers taking part included Jesse McCartney, Shane Stevens, Jackie Lee, Ivy Walker, Steven McMorran, Sophie Walker, James Morales, Lamont “Logic” Coleman, and more.

BMLG Records artist Cassadee Pope stated, “It was so inspiring getting to gather with some great songwriters beforehand, knowing that in a few minutes we would be in a room pouring our hearts into a song.”

“I met so many incredible writers and new lifelong friends,” said Starstruck Writers Group writer/producer Alex Kline. “It was, hands down, the most creative week I can ever remember having. I can’t wait to be a part of the next writers’ camp they put together.”

Maggie Rose shared, “This week mirrored the positive direction in which Nashville is going. More talent, creativity and variety will continue to pour out of Music City if we keep collaborating with writers from all genres. It was like having the best of Nashville, L.A and New York in one spot and the energy was insane. I can’t wait for the next one.”

“It was definitely one of the most fun, productive camps I’ve been a part of” said artist and producer Nash Overstreet. “The idea of handpicking a collection of artists and then pairing them up in combinations that didn’t make sense on paper actually produced some really exciting music! I’m really happy with the songs that I wrote and produced from the camp, as well as what I heard from others. So much talent in one building. Can’t wait for more!”

NashPop Songwriter Camp was sponsored by Acme Feed & Seed, ASCAP, Shop Aviate, BMI, Christie Cookie Co, City Nashville Bank, Defining Nashville, Element Music Row, Jammber, Pinnacle Financial Partners, SESAC and The Kind Cake.
