Jeffrey Steele’s Songwriting Boot Camp Searches for 12 New Writers

Posted in News on July 16, 2009

Two-time BMI Songwriter of the Year Jeffrey Steele will stage his 4th Annual Songwriting Boot Camp at BMI’s Music Row offices September 10-13. 3 Ring Circus Music is currently searching for 12 up-and-comers who will be selected to attend the three-day, two-night career-building experience, spearheaded by Steele, who remains one of contemporary music’s most consistent hit makers.

Throughout the weekend, attendees will participate in co-writing sessions in pairs, benefit from one-on-one coaching from Steele and engage in additional industry-focused activities. As alumni, boot campers will join the ranks of graduates who have gone on to score publishing deals, compose songs recorded by key artists, and in the case of Jennifer Adan, co-write #1 singles (Blake Shelton’s “She Wouldn’t Be Gone”).

Applications are available at and are due by August 1.

“We hope these writers leave with a new perspective on the craft and better understanding how this industry works,” said Steele.
