South African pop star Jimmy Nevis has been confirmed to participate at the prestigious High Coast Songwriting Camp taking place on the island of Ulvön just oﬀ the coast of Sweden in the first week of October this year.
As one of the 18 invitees hailing from all across the world, and the only South African, Nevis will be rubbing shoulders with a selection of the biggest names behind some of the most famous artists of the last decade.
The participants include multi-platinum award winning Jenson Vaughn who has written for Madonna, Steve Aoki, Britney Spears, Armin van Buuren, and Post Malone, Singer / Songwriter Maria Hazell who has recorded and written with Max Martin, Bebe Rexha, Zara Larsson, and Iconopop, Bhavik Pattani who has recently been working with the likes of Raj Kumari (Fifth Harmony, Gwen Stefani, Fall Out Boy), James Newman (Ed Sheeran, Rudimental), Camille Purcell (Jessie J, Little Mix), and Justin Gray who has collaborated with artists including Mariah Carey, John Legend, David Bisbal, Luis Fonsi, Joss Stone, Amy Winehouse, James Bay.
The participants will be divided equally between writers/producers/artists for six writing groups per day, and will form new groups for each of the writing days. The camp will be based at the exceptional boutique Ulvö Hotel, which has been booked out specially for the occasion, and is situated in a beautiful World Heritage area recently ranked as one of the top 10 most magic places in the Nordic countries to visit.
“This is a massive honour and opportunity for me,” says Jimmy, “The calibre of artists and songwriters being assembled for this is humbling, and an absolute dream come true for me. I can’t wait for the experience and I’m so excited to see what comes out of the writing and recording sessions!”
