About The Event

This is the 3rd year Norwegian publishers The Woods and daWorks Music Publishing, supported by The Norwegian Music Publisher Association, will invite professional Norwegian, British and international songwriters, and artists to Bad Manors' songwriting camp. Bad Manors 2022 takes place Monday 21st - Friday 25th November at Cheltenham House, a mansion in Cotswolds, in the English countryside, just a couple of hours outside London. This combination of inspiring, beautiful scenery and living facilities encourages uninterrupted creativity.

Over three days, 10 songwriters, 5 producers and 5 artists will participate in songwriting teams focusing on contemporary hit songwriting with a unique Scandinavian and British twist; Pop, R&B, hip hop, and EDM. In total, 5 teams will be announced at breakfast each morning. Artists who need songs for their upcoming recording projects will join the teams for co-writing (the artists have a first option to cut the songs). Songs will be presented each night at 22.00 (10 pm). We always aim for 50/50 female/male participation.
