Description

Speed Songwriting: $95

With Five Amazing Mentors From inspiration and collaboration to final presentation.

In this intense workshop songwriters will be divided into groups that contain at lease one lyricist, vocalist and instrumentalist. You will have 3 hours to write a song and then perform it for the group.

This will be done with the help of five hit songwriters who know how to write on a deadline. The time will be broken down into sections with professional tips and coaching all along the way.

The result is you will end up with a new song, new collaborators, new connections, and hopefully new knowledge that will affect the way you write songs forever.

Ralph Torrefranca started his career in music young. From a DJ at KJEE in Santa Barbara, he moved into publicity and touring with such artists as Ben Gibbard and Jackson Browne. Then Ralph found his passion working directly with the artists – helping to launch and grow their careers while sharing a mutual love of songwriting and music. With an extensive background in artist management, Ralph’s strengths lie in identifying great talent early and working closely with the artists to develop their potential both creatively and professionally. An accomplished singer / songwriter himself, Ralph understands the music industry

from the talent’s point of view, and such perspective supports the connection he makes with each artist. Before joining Angry Mob, Ralph was part of the team at Red Light Management, Grandstand Media & Management, and The Collide Agency.

Diona Devincenzi is a songwriter/producer born in San Francisco and hanging her hat in Nashville. A California native, Diona spent her early years soaking up the rich and diverse music and culture of the San Francisco Bay Area. “I can remember spending hours and hours listening to the radio” says Devincenzi. My brothers and sister wanted to play softball and other sports outside, but I was always hanging out on the couch listening to the latest pop songs. I spent hours and hours turning the dial to find the gems.”

Her obsession continued throughout college. She studied at U.C. Berkeley, focusing on the jazz genre and examining the lyrics and melodies of Tin Pan Alley writers such as Johnny Mercer, Rodgers and Hart, George and Ira Gershwin and Cole Porter and singing in a jazz choir, while on the weekends taking gigs singing those jazz standards around town for private parties and events.

After that, having sang back up for and fronting several bands in the Bay Area, Diona took the brave decision to up sticks and move to Nashville, successfully immersing herself in the craft and business of songwriting. Says Devincenzi “I wanted to become a better songwriter and for me there was only place on a very short list to do that.”

Since then her songs have garnered several independent artist cuts and been featured in numerous hit TV shows and films such as ABC, NBC, Chicago P.D., Mistresses, Hustlers, The View, The Chew, Shark Tank, Fresh Off the Boat, Fashion Police and many more.
