From August 23rd – 25th 2022, the Lucile-Meisel Songwriting Sessions took place at the Hansa Studios in Berlin. Supported by GEMA for the first time, interested members of the collecting society could apply for a place. Peter Müssig from Hamburg prevailed against 100 competitors and was present as an author on all three days. Finally, the traditional Meisel-Hansa Hoffest took place August 26th.
The Songwriting Session Summer 2022 focused on the Austrian singer and actress Simone, the young singer Mela Rose and Julian Reim. For three days, the 18 authors worked intensively in teamwork and in close personal exchange with the artists present on 18 new titles. Divided into six studios, each with three alternating authors, they wrote for one of the artists every day.
The songwriters Anja Krabbe, Tanja Lasch, Alexa Voss, Ela Querfeld, Linda Stark, Simon Allert, André Stade, Alexander Scholz, Bernhard Wittgruber, Benjamin Schwenen, Jens Lücking, Niels Megens, Matthias Teriet, Kurt Schoger, Tom Marquardt, Dominik Gassner, Benjamin Brümmer and Peter Müssig went into creative exchange on all three days.
The Lucile-Meisel team around Kirsten Meisel, Ina Wiens, Leandra Marzluff, Safia Bohm, Christopher Gronau, Marcus Zander and Basti Becks draws a positive balance, as Kirsten Meisel, Managing Director Lucile-Meisel Music Group explains: „It was again a great pleasure for all participants to work together with other creatives in a professional environment and this great positive atmosphere in the Hansa Studios. The musical results are convincing. Thus, 18 promising new titles were created this week.“
For Marcus Zander, publishing director Lucile-Meisel, it was „once again impressive to see and hear how our authors created tailor-made compositions, lyrics and arrangements for the invited artists in a very short time. We will continue our successful concept of writing in direct exchange with the artists in the future.“
Christopher Gronau, A&R Manager Lucile-Meisel Music Group & Telamo, emphasises that the very special, almost magical atmosphere that arises when you work in the Hansa Studio radiates to all creative people. „This was also noticeable at this session from the very first second and the outstanding results speak for themselves.“
