Peter Case – Songwriting Workshop

Sat, January 12, 2019

-5:00 pm

| $75

Peter Case’s Songwriting Workshop—A class that all levels of songwriters can enjoy.

Peter brings knowledge from his years as an acclaimed songwriter, including his debut in 1976 with punk/new wave/ rock and roll legends The Nerves and his popular recordings with the Plimsouls for Geffen Records, on through to his groundbreaking and three-times Grammy nominated solo career.

In this workshop, Case offers secrets of the craft that will have you immediately writing more powerful and interesting songs.  You can bring in a song for a critique, or simply enjoy the exercises and ideas conveyed in the class. The atmosphere is a fun, comfortable, and at times humorous environment, but the content is serious and will enable you to surprise yourself with a new batch of songs that will be assigned at the end of the session.

Peter Case is a Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter and producer, a mighty fine guitarist and a well-reviewed published author and yet, he’s most at home on the stage. For 25 years, Peter, his guitar and his songs have mesmerized audiences from coast to coast, whether holding down a festival crowd, warming up the place for luminaries like Jackson Browne and John Prine or headlining his own nightclub shows— of which he can claimed to have logged thousands.

“But Case’s considerable background in punk and electric pop injects his songs with a uniquely incisive quality…even his more laid back ballads connect with a power and passion most others in his field don’t—or can’t– invoke. “ —American Songwriter

“Nearly three decades into his solo career, Peter Case remains one of our best and most compelling singer/songwriters”   —All Music Guide
