Secret Road partnered with Creative Lab Hawaii to host a Music Immersive Program in the form of a songwriting camp, which took place June 10th-14th in Hawaii. The five-day intensive program focused on giving participants the opportunity to co-write and produce music for specific film or TV projects with a team of professional mentors.
Following the completion of the program, attendees will receive year-round mentoring support, and three of the most promising attendees will be selected by the mentors to participate in networking opportunities with music industry leaders in Los Angeles. In addition to composing songs for specific projects, participants were able to learn some of the finer points of music licensing, publishing, intellectual property (IP) protection, and other aspects of the business from industry experts.
Secret Road writers included Brian Fennell, Adrianne Gonzalez, and Katie Herzig. The music supervisors' projects covered a range of fields, which included advertisements, films, and trailers. Those supervisors/executives included Wayne Davis, Lynn Grossman, Daniel Higbee, Dave Jordan, Julianne Jordan, Gwen Riley, Heather Anderson, Janine Scalise-Boyd, Susan Schwartz, Jerome Spence and Natalie Wali.

Both Secret Road and ASCAP chose amongst its talent to bring the best together for this first-time multi-cultural songwriting camp. The goal behind this songwriting camp was and continues to be the bridging of culture + talent and to use our songwriters collective talents to write for film/TV/advertisements and cuts . . . but, from a global perspective.
