BLUE ROCK FOUNDATION
Songwriter Retreat 2023
Songwriting Workshop with Beth Nielsen Chapman
February 10-12, 2023
Following her spectacular live show at Blue Rock, Beth Nielsen Chapman led a group of songwriters through a writing workshop that led to new friends, new memories, and of course, new songs!
The retreat lasted the entire weekend and we simply cannot feel more creatively rejuvenated as Beth taught us about the "magic of creative flow," through her exercises, advise, stories, and examples.
Every night ended in-the-round with every artist showing off what they had spent the day working, and it could not have felt better!
Hope to see you at Blue Rock for the next one!
Beth Nielsen Chapman has taught at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, Berklee College of Music, and, in 2016, was inducted into the Nashville Songwriting Hall of Fame.
She has written hits for Bette Midler, Elton John, Emmylou Harris, Indigo Girls, Willie Nelson, and a megahit (“This Kiss”) for Faith Hill - ASCAP’S 1999 Song of the Year and it garnered Chapman a Grammy Award nomination.
Her songs are heard on ER, Dawson's Creek, Providence, and Felicity, and in movie soundtracks - The Prince of Egypt, Message In A Bottle, The Rookie, Where The Heart Is, and Practical Magic.
Her stories illustrate how healing and resilience are fueled through creativity. She deems herself a “creativity whisperer” with a passion for inspiring others to fully blossom into their creative potential.
Her album, Crazy Town, was released in 2022. "The album is a wonder of delights full of well written and well produced tracks and absolutely no fillers." -buildingourownnashville.com
