“We are going to offer professional development, emphasizing the importance of intellectual property, song rights, and other tools that will allow songwriters to build sustainable income to support themselves and their families. Ultimately SOLO aims to help songwriters expand both their creative legacy and their financial security.”
All great musicians require a source of inspiration to draw out their inner voice. South Louisiana is that muse for many songwriters, where creativity flows out of them like the area’s fertile rivers and bayous.
CREATE Lafayette and the South Louisiana Songwriters Festival are very pleased to announce that Erica Fox and Dustin Gaspard have been selected to serve as the two CREATE Songwriting Fellows and attend the 2019 SOLO Songwriting Workshop through a scholarship.
In an effort to find new ways to support the Lafayette Parish music community, SOLO is adding a new industry conference this year in conjunction with the public festival featuring some of the most successful local, national and international songwriters of our time coming to Lafayette to hone their songwriting together.
