After a string of sell-out shows at London’s Roundhouse, The Songwriters Circle is going virtual. It will be bringing to people’s homes, some of the world’s most respected songwriters who will perform songs we love in their own unique voices, in a relaxed and acoustic setting from their home studios in aid of the Roundhouse #roundyourhouse.
The first session will be co-hosted by Nashville based hitmaker and ex BMI VP Jeff Cohen and the London-born singer-songwriter Riva Taylor. And, will include Jamie Hartman who co-wrote the breathtaking track Human by Rag n’ Bone Man as well as Lewis Calpadi’s UK top five hit Hold Me While You Wait, Jon Green who has co-written many of James Bay’s popular hits including Us and Pink Lemonade and special guests come together on YouTube to perform and exchange songs and stories.
Co-creator Riva Taylor says: ‘The Roundhouse has partnered with us on The Songwriters Circle from the start, not only is it one of London’s best-loved performance venues but it’s also a foundation and a hub for inspiring and nurturing creative talent.
In this challenging time of isolation, it’s more important than ever that we continue to support this young and growing community of creatives. We hope that generous donations on the night will go some way towards achieving this and that we can draw together the two elements of the Roundhouse as both a live space and a charity. Viewers will be left feeling inspired as well as uplifted by the fantastic songwriting talent they have watched’.
