SONGSALIVE! SONGWRITERS SONG CRITIQUE WORKSHOP LOS ANGELES CA
Monthly on the Third Sunday of the month

On Sunday September 15 at 12PM, Songsalive! continues their monthly songwriter’s workshop series with 3-time Grammy-nominated Pamela Phillips Oland.

Pamela has over  500 songs recorded in the U.S.A. and worldwide, including lyrics for Aretha Franklin & The Four Tops, Frank Sinatra, Whitney Houston & Jermaine Jackson’s “Nobody Loves Me Like You Do,” Anne Murray, Howie Dorough & Sarah Geronimo, Philip Bailey, Earth Wind & Fire, Gladys Knight, Reba McIntyre, Peabo Bryson, The Jacksons, Engelbert Humperdinck, Dolly Dots, Dusty Springfield, The Crusaders, The Whispers, The Brothers Johnson, Selena, DJ Ralphi Rosario, and Michael Learns to Rock.

She has given multiple seminars on songwriting, including at Carnegie Hall, in Australia and Finland, and at music conservatories around Denmark. She taught her craft for 8 years at UCLA, and was part of the historic “Music Speaks Louder Than Words” event--the first ever creative exchange between US and Soviet songwriters and artists, in Moscow and Leningrad. Pamela’s books are, The Art of Writing Great Lyrics and The Art of Writing Love Songs. Musicals she’s currently developing: "Chick,” “Wonder” (a Stevie Wonder musical) and “Touch Me, a Rock Show”. Her musical “Soldier of Orange” is in its 9th sold-out year in Holland, with almost 3 million tickets sold. It is the most successful musical in Dutch history and is about to go into workshop in London, where a new immersive theater is being built for it in Newham, near London City Airport. Producers plan to open in September, 2020. Pamela is the sole lyricist for Argentinian diva Karen Souza, including co-writing the hit song “Paris.”

Pam’s topic: The Fine Art of Collaboration

  • Getting the most out of collaboration
  • How to work with someone and not feel you’re being overpowered
  • Allowing your collaborator thinking room
  • Why collaboration is often better than writing alone
  • Taking care of the business aspects including costs, of collaboration
  • Overcoming the fear of losing your creative input
  • How to know when a collaboration is a dud, a drain, or a disaster
