“It was an amazing experience. Everything I had ever wanted to do, I got the opportunity to do it. I worked every day with different groups and to work with people who are so good at their craft was amazing talent development. I’m now working on my EP with one of the producers I met on the camp and two of the songs I co-wrote got picked up, including ‘The Alley’ released by EAST. It has definitely changed the way I approach things. I hadn’t done a lot of co-writing or writing for other artists before and now I’m really motivated by seeing how well it worked and what came out of it.”
