Unlock Your Song

Everyone has a song in them

Write and perform a new song, or cover a song that captures lock-down 2020 for you.

COVID-19 has affected us all in different ways. This is a chance to

breathe in and refresh,

be inspired by your experience,

express yourself through music!

This maybe something you love to do, which feeds your soul, or it maybe something you have never tried before.

Would you like to make music with
purpse?

Let’s collaborate and make some great music together.

tap into your creativity

challenge yourself within a supportive group

sing to connect your message with the world

make a professional acoustic recording that you’d be proud to share

The two groups will be encouraged to share their music and support one another in live tutorials and an online ‘live gig’ at the end of the project.

There are only twenty spaces available, so book early to guarantee your place.

 

An Unmissable opportunity

Make a unique record of this time

You can either write a song – lyric and melody – it can be any genre. Or you can choose to sing an existing song with a message that speaks for you.

I am a professional music producer, with #1 chart success, who will guide you, either in the task of writing, and/or performing, with structured video guides and feedback sessions.

Whichever you choose, I will help you to record your vocals at home, I’ll produce a bespoke backing track with live musicians, and give it the full production treatment in my studio.

Let your chosen song speak for you and to the people you love.

The details

Coaching and support format

I will invite you to join online zoom calls with me and your fellow participants twice a week, where I will lead you on your creative journey. You will be given tasks to complete each week as we progress.

Timings

Each coaching session will last approximately 90 minutes. Cover artists will meet on Tuesday and Saturday evenings. Singer-Songwriters will meet on Wednesday and Saturday evenings. We will start on week commencing 5th July and aim to perform our songs in an ‘online gig’ mid-August (official date TBC).

Equipment requirements

You will need a smartphone or other smart device with a camera or voice recording app installed to make audio recordings of your vocals. If you have any more advanced recording equipment, even better!

Backing tracks

Your backing track will be a simple acoustic arrangement to bring out the best in your song and vocals. It may feature instruments such as piano, guitar, drums, bass and will be professionally mixed in my studio.

Copyright

For singer-songwriters, I request that you sign a standard writer-producer agreement, provided by The Musicians Union, which will set the royalties due should your song become commercially successful. You will receive this agreement by email on booking your place. Please return a signed copy in order to confirm your participation. Thank you.

The online 'live' gig!

At the end of our project, you will have an MP3+WAV file of your song recording, and a lyric video to share. I will then host a gig online, and play all the songs and videos to our live invited audience. It’ll be a fun and informal way to showcase your song. We will also post all the songs and videos on jameshawkinsmusic.com and on the JHM YouTube channel in our ‘new music hub’.
