Place: De Poort, Amsterdam, Holland | City: Amsterdam, Netherlands
On January 2 - 4, 2017 we will gather with songwriters from all over Europe to get inspired and encouraged, but most of all, to write together.
No one less than the "father of songwriters" Graham Kendrick will be your coach and will share from his heart what he has learned over the years. Graham has written hundreds of songs that are being sung throughout the world and is a singing pastor with a heart for God, desiring to pass it on to a new generation. He will teach on “Hearing what's on Gods heart for the church of today”.
Speaking of a new generation, Jake Isaac is a songwriter that amazes everyone with his creative songs that have stolen the hearts of his public all through Europe. On big festivals and stages in the big cities of Europe he was able to share his songs with a crowd that does not know Christ. He is authentic, vulnerable and an example for us all to shine your light in the world without compromising. Jake will teach on “Secular songwriting without compromising”.
Philippa Hanna is a singer-songwriter who has proven that you can stay radical as a christian, speak up in your songs and still join tours with artists such as Little Mix, Lionel Richie or Anastacia. Her songs are innovatory and beautiful, touching the heart. Her honesty and caring heart reveals her love for Jesus and she will teach on “Faith Songs for all”
Your hosts Peter and Carin van Essen are both songwriters for decades and many of their songs are sung in the churches in the Netherlands. Being musicianaries they share Gods love with music. They hope to give you an inspirational setting, a safe environment and bring you in contact with co-writers around the globe.
There will be time to worship, inspiration, writing together and listening to each other during the open podium. And of course there will be time to enjoy one of the most inspiring cities of Europe. There is a possibility to stay one night extra to take some more time to do sightseeing or co-writing.We only have about 50 places for this Songwriters Consultation, so don't hesitate too long!
