Studio Bell

Calgary, AB

$150.00

Neville’s class: As a music publisher for 19 years as well as a touring and recording musician, he’ll talk about the business of songwriting plus the craft itself. There will be an emphasis on understanding the world of music publishing and song writing in general, and then devotion to song writing and performance. You’ll come away with the confidence to create, but with a bigger understanding of the world of songs and songwriting. The goal is to record a new song on your phone at the end of the sessions.

Participants will be encouraged to explore co-writing.

Bring: a desire to write plus some skills and an idea of what you want to do with your songs. Also bring the tools you use to create a song, but in their simplest configuration -   guitars, keyboards, laptops, etc.

Class level/requirements: all levels welcome.

NQ Arbuckle
Everything I say is a lie. How do you like me now?

Like a post-modern glass skyscraper housed within a 1930s limestone façade in downtown Toronto shines Canada’s premier alt-country rock band, NQ Arbuckle that create new spins on old takes. From the collective of Neville Quinlan, Mark Kesper, Peter Kesper, John Dinsmore and Jason Sniderman comes a recognizable genre that is refreshingly unconforming. Quinlan’s poetic lyrics rise above the singing stomp-alongs to hang quietly in the air, patiently intoxicating you with their 98 proof potency. “In a green dress she danced like a net in the water… and when the wedding was over I had to get out of there.”
