12/4/17

"OK, campers," declares Disney Music Publishing VP Barbara Vander Linde to attendees of DMP's annual songwriting camp, "After breakfast you'll be expected to earn your archery badges, make papier-mâché holiday gifts in arts and crafts, swim laps in the lake and write the topline for a 17-year-old reality star's first single. She wants a Diplo-meets-"Despacito" vibe. After that, calisthenics! Chop chop." 

Seen just before writing a super-catchy letter home are (back, l-r) DMG A&R Director Brandon Kitchen, songwriters Tony Ferrari, Jintae Ko, Doug Rockwell, Louis Schoorl, Nick Pingree, Steph Jones and A&R Director Peter Lloyd; (Front Row L-R:) Vander Linde; songwriters Dewain Whitmore Jr., Jason Mater, Blush, Tina Parol, Jordan Power, SVP Creative DMG Mio Vukovic and songwriter Johnny Dibb.
