Event Details

The songwriting workshop taught by A.J. Croce is a three day event.  Each day A.J. will be honing in on specific fundamentals of songwriting, including music theory fundamentals, lyric composition, interpersonal connection, connecting with the song emotionally, and all other inner-aspects that songwriters challenge themselves with.

The workshop is for both beginners and experienced songwriters.  There will also be some one-on-one time, partnering up time, alone time.

The workshop schedule is 11am until 5pm each day with a 1 hour break for lunch.  Meals are NOT provided, but there are many restaurants available within walking distance of the venue.

The last day there will be a showcase for any of the participants of the workshop to demonstrate.

This workshop has a limited number of seats available and is on a first come, first serve basis.

Some instrumentation will be provided at the workshop, but participants are encouraged to bring their own preferred instrument.

He’s also sat in with many notable performers, including Willie Nelson, Ben Harper, Ry Cooder, the Neville Brothers, and Waylon Jennings. A.J. has done co-writes with acclaimed songwriters including Leon Russell, Gary Nicholson, and Robert Earl Keen and worked with legendary producers such as T-Bone Burnett, Jim Keltner, and Allen Toussaint. He has been seen and heard on shows including Late Show With David Letterman, The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, Good Morning America, Austin City Limits, and on MTV, CNN, and E! His music has been featured on television, in films, and commercials including for Coca Cola, Heineken, Levi’s, and Toyota. Croce’s last release, Twelve Tales, was recorded across the U.S. over one year with six legendary producers: the late “Cowboy” Jack Clement (Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley), Allen Toussaint (Dr. John, Eric Clapton), Mitchell Froom (Los Lobos, Crowded House), Tony Berg (Fiona Apple, Bob Dylan), Greg Cohen (Tom Waits, John Zorn), and Kevin Killen (Elvis Costello, Peter Gabriel); A.J. co-wrote the disc’s “Rollin’ On” with Russell.
Allen Toussaint said of Croce: “In such a crowded music universe it is a pleasure to witness triple uniqueness: pianist, songwriter, singer and at such a level. And who does he sound like? ... The answer is: himself … A.J. Croce.”
According to Willie Nelson, “A.J. Croce has wisdom beyond his years. With his music, he represents his generation with a profound sense of honesty in his lyrics and quality in his delivery. The future of entertainment is safe in his hands!”
