Inspired by a collaboration between award-winning singer-songwriter Troy Campbell and Danish star Poul Krebs, The House of Songs was created to provide a conduit for connecting diverse artists and cultures together. Campbell developed a plan to spread the concept to other parts of the world sponsoring collaborations in 13 countries and now operates out of Austin and Bentonville, Arkansas. The House of Songs participants have had internationally charting songs, earned Grammy nominations and festival headlining slots, and built lifelong bonds with musicians and fans. Envisioning international collaboration as the driving force for the future, The House of Songs uses music to open dialogues and build understanding – and ideally, global harmony.
Celebrating its ninth anniversary this month, The House of Songs announces “A Songwriter’s Farewell to Threadgill’s World Headquarters” on Monday, Nov. 12. The event will be performed at Threadgill’s World Headquarters before the venue closes its doors for the final time. Acts will perform a few songs of their own or songs that they have written as part of the songwriting collaborative. As Threadgill’s World Headquarters played host to The House of Songs’ first ever show, the evening will be an immensely personal goodbye for The House of Songs and a tribute to the songwriting legacies that have graced the stage since then. A few of the artists from the upcoming event came into Studio 1A including House of Songs Artist Manager, Graham Weber, Troy Campbell, Ali Holder, and Bonnie Montgomery to give us a sneak preview of what we can expect from the evening.
