Wilmington’s 93-7 WSTW is offering a unique opportunity for musicians to learn from renowned, award-winning songwriters in a workshop setting. The WSTW Songwriters Workshop, brought to you by The Music School of Delaware will be held from 2-4pm on Saturday, March 8, 2014 at World Café Live at the Queen, 500 North Market Street in Wilmington.
Those who register for the workshop will be scheduled for two separate one-hour sessions with songwriters Doug James and Jeff Cohen. James has written with and for a number of notable performers. He is best known for co-writing “How Am I Supposed To Live Without You”, which was a hit single for Laura Branigan and, later, for Michael Bolton. James has also contributed music to the discographies of Dan Hill, Dionne Warwick, Cissy Houston, The Manhattans, Klymaxx, Stacy Lattisaw and many others.
Cohen is a multi-award winning songwriter/producer whose songs have been featured on over 20 million albums and over 10 million video games. Jeff is also known as Pancho’s Lament, which he founded originally to play concerts on his birthday. As a songwriter, Jeff wrote the top 5 hit “Crazy For This Girl” for Evan and Jaron. Other artists who have recorded Cohen's songs include Big & Rich, Sugarland, Josh Groban, Macy Gray, Nick Lachey, Mark Broussard, Spin Doctors, and Mandy Moore, to name a few.
Workshop seating is very limited. Tickets will be available for $95 (plus $4 service fee) at the World Café Live at the Queen box office, or by clicking here. Workshop admission also includes a ticket to the Singer/Songwriter Showcase to be held at 7pm that evening at the Queen. James and Cohen will be featured in an hour-long set during the showcase.
