The 5th Pro7ect Songwriting & Music Production Retreat @ Hotel Pelirocco
19th-23rd February 2018

Pro7ect is a Global network of music professionals. We facilitate creative opportunities for songwriters, producers & musicians to collaborate at residential writing retreats.

In our Pop-Up studios you will write a track, from scratch, each day, working in different teams lead by our A-list Producers.

In 2017 24 artists wrote & recorded 20 songs in 5 Pop-Up studios in 4 days.

Several tracks have placed with various artists and been pitched to synch for popular TV programs.

“I would personally recommend Pro7ect to singers and songwriters who are serious about what they want to do… it’s brilliantly run and you get a chance to work with some great people” – Samantha Rawlings, Singer/songwriter 2016 participant

“Just wanted to say a huge thanks for putting on such an amazing week of creativity. I loved the whole thing, learned a lot and what a fantastic group of people. Really chuffed with the songs we made… I reckon I’ll be using 3 out of 4 tracks this year on a CD and possibly live as well”  – Hattie Briggs, Singer/songwriter 2017 participant
