The Collective Song Club” is your place to be every other Wednesday evening! It will take place at Music Works NYC, (http://www.musicworksnyc.com) 215 West 91st Street (DeSoto Building) just off of Broadway with the studio on the basement level. It is a doorman building with easy mass transit subway stops via the 1/2/3 and C trains. It begins at 5:30PM so those heading home from work can stop in without it getting too late. Each session will end promptly at 8:30pm when the studio will go back into record mode for the evening schedule. Drop in anytime up until 7:30pm during each session. You can’t even really be late! Leave when you like! The goal of the Collective Song Club is to create a nurturing space for songwriters, artists and producers to present their works in progress, completed songs and productions as well as ask questions about the music business. Vetting songs about to be recorded will give you one more moment of clarity and reflection before you spend energy and dollars on your recording. Song tempos and keys can be discussed as well as best possible producers and vocalists for your project. The studio will have guitars and a keyboard available so no need to feel you have to bring your own. The studio can playback a CD, your iPhone or Android, MP3 player, or connect via the internet to your website or Dropbox. Bring a few lyric sheets of the song you would like to share. The entire evening is about forming a creative community that enhances your art and helps you grow as a songwriter. The Song Club is led by hit songwriter/producer and Collective founder Peter Bliss. His songs have been recorded by artists as diverse as Barbra Sreisand, NSYNC, Paula Abdul, Peter Wolf (J Geils) and many more. There is no advance payment or sign-up necessary. Each session will cost $25 per person payable at the door as we begin. The studio has a “Square” reader so you can put it on your debit / credit. Come one week or skip a session - feeling inspired - come on down - feeling tired or have a change of plans - there’s no need to feel like you have to be there. Sessions might be crowded - some might be just a few people - or you! We ask that you refrain from bringing food or beverage into the main studio room. A first visit to the Song Club does not require annual membership. After a first visit, we ask you to become a full member of the Collective. The annual membership is $40. This membership entitles you to participate in all the Collective workshops as well as perform a song (or have your song performed) in our quarterly Member Benefit Showcases held at the Bitter End.
