During a week in the beginning of October, Musikmakarna held the third songwriting camp of it's kind at Ulvö Hotell, Ulvön, for professional songwriters. The camp was hosted by Ulla Sjöström, Head Of School at Musikmakarna and Niclas Lundin, Professional Instructor and New Ventures Coordinator at Musikmakarna. Sponsored by Världsklass Örnsköldsvik, 18 participants from 10 nations were invited to Ulvön to write and produce music for four effective days.
The very picturesque island of Ulvön offers one of the most mind opening environments in the world and along with the world class food, service and hospitality at Ulvö Hotell, the conditions are exemplary for a creative experience also considering the fact that the camp is hosted with a foundation of Musikmakarnas 20 year long experience of songwriting/cowriting on a daily basis in intimate connection with the music industry around the world.
Many of the participants have claimed the High Coast Songwriting Camp to be one of their best and most creatively inspiring times of their lives!
Today Musikmakarna was honoured to receive a ”STAR-Diploma” from the hand of Swedish Minister for EU-Affairs and Trade, Ann Linde, together with representatives from the Municipality of Örnsköldsvik. The Diploma is given to an organization or company who has contributed to the brand and growth of Örnsköldsvik in the region, nationwide and globally. We are truly grateful and will proudly continue to work intensively for our young songwriting talents and for the Swedish Music Wonder! Looking forward to 20 more years to come!
Congratulations to all the worthy winners at the Denniz Pop Awards 2018, and of course; an extra big CONGRATULATIONS from us at Musikmakarna to our former student Litens Anton Nilsson who won the Dennis Pop Rookie Songwriter/Producer Award! Best of luck in your future endeavours!

Thanks Julius, Martin & Johan for taking the time, your inspiration for us and our students is something you can't really put into words!!

All our students are uniquely amazing and this is yet another example of that!
