This month we celebrate country music. With the annual Country to Country festival taking place at the O2 from the 11th to the13th of March, it's the perfect time to bring together some of the best country artists currently being developed at ICMP, and a couple of special guests.
Our Head of Songwriting Sophie Daniels will host the evening, and will be joined by award-winning American songwriter, producer, and publisher Jeff Cohen, whose writing credits include Josh Groban, Macy Gray and Sugarland, and has also worked with the likes of Jeff Buckley. Also featuring on the night are alumna Hannah Rose Platt and current students Jay Scott, Kaity Rae and Zoe Hodges.
March will also celebrate the launch of the London chapter of the Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI).
Prior to the Songwriters' Circle there will be an 'In Converstation'-style masterclass with Jeff Cohen, interviewed by Songwriting Programme Leader Jonathan Whiskerd.
Host: Sophie Daniels
Special Guest: Jeff Cohen
Guest Alumna: Hannah Rose Platt

Lifting the veil on songwriters today, this writers round is a truly unique experience.
Our Songwriters' Circle is London's fastest growing songwriting event, where songwriters reveal how and why their music and lyrics came to be. Taking place in an intimate setting, you will get an exclusive chance to hear well-known songs stripped back and sung by the writers themselves, as well as new material from the most talented up-and-coming songwriting students in the UK.
Hosted by ICMP tutors (which include a Mercury Music Prize Nominee and No. 1 UK writers and artists), and featuring an exciting line-up of our network of successful alumni along with ICMP students artists and our a fantastic line up special guests... you never know who you'll meet!
Open to all, the Songwriters' Circle attracts musicians, music lovers and industry alike, a unique blend of people coming together for one evening along with stunning songs and the stories around them.
