With sand still in our shoes, we’re excited to tell you about our recent adventure in Costa Rica; six days of music industry workshops at the fantastic Neverland Retreats event!
Led by co-founders Adam McInnis and Sam “Heights” Garay, it offers aspiring artists and producers the chance to get away from the daily grind and learn about the music business from people on the inside; a selection of award winning producers, songwriters, vocal coaches and other seasoned professionals who have worked with some of the biggest names in music. With a sell out attendance of up and coming artists and a plethora of music industry mentors in the same hotel, it was a real hotbed of talent, surrounded by the beautiful jungles of Nosara, Guancaste.
Idyllic as the scenery may sound, this was not just a holiday, we were keen to demonstrate (OK, show off!) what ConnectionOpen can do, and how it can be used to empower artists to work remotely, so we decided to really push it. We performed a live ConnectionOpen session from Costa Rica to Portugal - over 5,000 miles away! We’re pleased to report everything went smoothly and the response was really positive, attendees were especially impressed by the quality of the session, and how easy it was to set up.
If you like the sound of Neverland Retreats, we highly recommend them if you want the insider guide to making it in the music industry - maybe we’ll see you at the next one!
