Writing Between the Lines: How to Thrive Across Genres

Feedback form is now closed.
We live in the era of the crossover. Famous recording artists are writing hit Broadway musicals, legendary hip-hop producers are scoring acclaimed TV shows, and many pop songwriters spend half their time in Nashville. And while all this cross-genre collaboration can open up all sorts of exciting creative avenues, it also presents challenges for the music creator trying to navigate a new musical world with its own culture and set of rules. On this panel, you’ll hear from songwriters who have found success in multiple genres. You’ll find out the benefits and drawbacks of working outside your comfort zone, and learn how to make the most of your talents, no matter what kind of project you’re writing for.
