Songwriters Social Club

…is about loving to perform and write music and making some new friends.

Each week you will work with a professional musician who will take you through live music sharing from the artists themselves, songwriting stimulus and inspiration activities, songwriting help and guidance, the chance to share and receive peer feedback on your own music, listening time and musical recommendations, along with the chance to just relax and chat too!

The club is open to anyone who is 14 – 18 and is a solo performer. To get the best from this group, you should be able to play a song or two on guitar or piano. You should also be interested in writing your own songs!


Next Session

31st March 2pm – 5pm with Special Guest Jodie Nicholson

Jodie Nicholson is a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from the village of Hurworth-on-Tees in north east England. Jodie’s artistry can be seen as ‘singer-songwriter plus’, where her ethereal vocals, delicate melodies and emotive lyrics glide effortlessly between soundscapes of warm folk-pop, soft jazz, indie and electro, all the while blurring the lines of genre expectations.

In a breakthrough 2020, Jodie was awarded prestigious funding from both Help Musicians ‘Do It Differently’ and PRS Foundation ‘Women Make Music’. Recent single Move was produced by Tim Bran (London Grammar, Aurora, Rae Morris) and solidified Jodie’s status as one of the UK’s most exciting emerging artists with a deserved place on the BBC Radio 6 Music playlist, Amazing Radio’s A-List and the BT TV Music playlist (recommended track), alongside spins on BBC Radio 1 and BBC Tees.

With musical influences including Laura Marling, Lucy Rose, Bombay Bicycle Club, Daughter, Warpaint, Pink Floyd and Tori Amos, Jodie is not afraid to experiment and build upon each song’s raw foundations of guitar/piano and vocals, really bringing her recordings to life through deep textures, layered harmonies, strings, drums and additional instrumentation.
