WSTW’s BMI Songwriters’ Workshop
WSTWâs BMI Songwritersâ Workshop
Wilmington’s 93.7 WSTW is offering a unique opportunity for musicians to learn from renowned, award-winning songwriters in a workshop setting. The WSTW Songwriters Workshop will be held from 2-4pm on Saturday, March 8, 2014 at World Cafe Live at the Queen at 500 North Market Street in Wilmington.

Those that register for the workshop will be scheduled for one hour session with songwriters Doug James and Jeff Cohen.

James has written with and for a number of notable performers. He is best known for co-writing “How Am I Supposed to Live Without You”, which was a hit single for Laura Branigan and, later, for Michael Bolton. James has also contributed music to the discographies of Dan Hill, Dionne Warwick, Cissy Houston, The Manhattans, Klymaxx, Stacy Lattisaw and many others.

Cohen is a multi-award winning songwriter/producer whose songs have been featured on over 20 million albums and over 10 million video games. Jeff is also known as Pancho’s Lament, which he founded originally to play concerts on his birthday. In late 1999/early 2000 he released a collection of songs which became known as the self-titled “Pancho’s Lament” CD. The second Pancho’s Lament album “Leaving Town Alive” was released in early 2003. Pancho’s Lament did a limited unreleased pressing of a third cd called “Three Sides to Every Story” in 2008. This fall Pancho’s Lament plans to release their 4th album yet to be titled. Jeff also co-wrote and produced an album with his good friend Chris Barron of the Spin Doctors called “Pancho and the Kid” which was released in 2007.

Workshop seating is very limited. Tickets are be available for $95 (plus $4 service fee) online here, by phone at 302-994-1400 and at the World Cafe Live at the Queen box office. Workshop admission also includes a ticket to the Singer/Songwriter Showcase to be held at 7pm that evening at the Queen. James and Cohen will be featured in an hour-long set during the showcase. The workshop and showcase, along with the March 7th Homey Awards Night at the Queen are parts of 93.7 WSTW’s Hometown Heroes Weekend.

“Hometown Heroes,” hosted by Mark Rogers, is the long-running program devoted to regional musicians, heard Sundays from 8-10pm on 93.7 WSTW. For more information, contact WSTW Promotions Coordinator Nathalie Antonov or WSTW Program Director Mike Rossi at 302-478-2700.
