WCM HAS FUN AT CAMP
9/26/23

Warner Chappell Music brought more than 300 songwriters, artists and producers to Las Vegas last week for its annual Songwriting Camp.

Between interactive and educational sessions on the publishing business, navigating the new songwriter economy and AI, songwriters gathered to come up with rhymes for “snake eyes,” “splitting eights,” “bottle service” and “Keno.”

“This year’s camp was the first time we brought together creators from all the major music markets—the U.S., Mexico, South Korea, U.K., Spain, and more,” Ryan Press, WCM’s president, North America, said. “We had rap producers working on K-pop briefs and Latin stars pairing up with country acts—we even had writers working with Nickelodeon actor and trending TikTok personality Trey Makai, and it was inspiring to see everyone get out of their comfort zones.”

WCM, in partnership with YouTube Music, Warner Records, Atlantic Records and RCA Records, wheeled out a solid lineup of talent that included Chlöe, Danna Paola, Bebe Rexha, K-pop songwriting and producing duo The Proof, Murda Beatz, Tay Keith, Amy Allen and many others.

Warner Music Group EVP of Business Development and Chief Digital Officer Oana Ruxandra and WCM executives Ashley Winton (SVP, Creative Services), Alicia Ripplinger (senior director, Legal & Business Affairs) and Alice Aleksandrovich led the sessions.

Camp attendees all wrote letters home saying the food sucked, the pool was too cold and diminished minor chords will be the wave of the future.
