Adventures in Songwriting is equal parts workshop, talk show, and new music generator. Award-winning singer / songwriter Jim Camacho will showcase all of the artists featured on Season 1 of the web series during a special evening of live music at the Mandelstam Theater in South Miami on Saturday, August 24, 2019.
“I’m extremely proud of all the fearless creative energy that went into each and every episode, and the new songs that were written,” says Camacho, who conceived AIS as a vehicle to highlight the songwriting side of South Florida. “We are pleased to be able to share our creations in a theatrical setting with the wonderful talents of Paul (Tei) from Mad Cat Live steering the ship.” Jim has been busy with his own songwriting over the last few years, bouncing between Miami and Nashville, TN as part of the AbFab publishing company’s stable of writers.
The series explores songwriting through the lens of an informal, sit-down story-telling session, allowing Jim and his guests to uncover the mystery of writing a song. They share stories about their path in music, and what led them to want to become a songwriter. By the end of each episode, Jim and company write a new original song using Camacho’s tried and true “30 minutes or die” hourglass-timed technique, honed during his time with The Goods.
