Recording Boot Camp is excited to announce that alternative folk icon Michelle Shocked has joined the mentor team for the 3rd annual Mountain Songwriting Retreat May 11-15, 2020 in Capon Springs, WV (90 minutes west of Washington Dulles Airport). The Mountain Songwriting Retreat is an all inclusive getaway to learn, jam, co-write, and relax at at an old school resort in the Allegheny Mountains. It is like a summer camp for adult songwriters.
For over 20 years, acclaimed picker-poet Michelle Shocked has been generating compelling lyrics and mneumonic melodies. In the ’80’s, she was thrust into an inadvertent recording career when a bootleg tape was released in England. In the ensuing bidding war following the phenomena of The Texas Campfire Tapes, Mercury Records signed her and she produced a trilogy of Grammy-nominated albums over the next five years, launched by her signature song, “Anchorage.” Michelle is also a passionate “copyright nerd” that is working to educate songwriters and the general public about the importance of respecting the creative works of all artists.
Michelle joins the mentor team which consists of internationally renowned singer-songwriter, and long time Al Stewart collaborator, Dave Nachmanoff and producer-engineer-songwriter Ronan Chris Murphy.
