In
conjunction with the Rock
Shop
in Brooklyn, songwriter and guitarist Jennifer O’Connor is going to be
hosting and performing in a monthly songwriter’s series called Tower Of Song that
will take place on the second Tuesday of every month in 2011.  She plans
to invite three other songwriters each time to the Rock Shop: the musicians
will play a handful of songs and talk about thier songwriting processes a
little bit, then collaborate and maybe play a cover or two. 

 

As O’Connor
puts it, “I think it’s going to make for a really interesting night of music,
especially for those interested in the “song” as an art form and
maybe learning about how different folks write.  I, for one, am totally
excited to see what comes from it.”

 

She adds
that she’s soliciting input from fans about the songs they’d like to hear as
well as what songwriters might be a good fit. She also indicates that she’s
presently working on her next album – the followup to her acclaimed 2008
release Here With Me, and hopes to
have it out this year.
