SongCatcher and Youthtown and Jackie Bristow are thrilled to announce the release of the SongCatcher/Youthtown EP Volume 1 on November 21 2023.
Creator and founder of SongCatcher, Jackie Bristow, has been mentoring a host of young songwriting talent from the Central Lakes District feature in this collection, singing their own songs and writing songs that connect with their own age group.
All songs have been written though Jackie’s creative songwriting program SongCatcher.Jackie says “it was super-exciting for the kids to write songs they’re connected to for their age group, although these gorgeous pop songs have genuine crossover appeal for adults too. I have designed SongCatcher to be a ‘find your happy place’ and I am so proud of the girls and these songs.”SongCatcher, supported by Youthtown, aims to empower children and young people, supporting emerging artists through songwriting experiences to help build their creative identity through music.
The EP features 6 young songwriters from the Lakes District (one family
have since moved to Dunedin) debuting their own original songs. The girls
are aged between 9 – 16 years old and have all been on the SongCatcher
journey of writing and recording. We are also excited to be launching my
SongCatcher program in Parliament November 21 and two of the girls on the EP
will be performing.
