Jim Camacho Celebrates Adventures in Songwriting and EP Release August 24


Each guest artist will perform original music and debut the song co-written on their episode; EP to be available as part of ticket package and for sale

Miami, FL – July 24, 2019 – Adventures in Songwriting is equal parts workshop, talk show, and new music generator. Award-winning singer / songwriter Jim Camacho will showcase all of the artists featured on Season 1 of the web series during a special evening of live music at the Mandelstam Theater in South Miami on Saturday, August 24, 2019, beginning at 8 p.m.  All ages are welcome, and there is free parking available.

“I’m extremely proud of all the fearless creative energy that went into each and every episode, and the new songs that were written,” says Camacho, who conceived AIS as a vehicle to highlight the songwriting side of South Florida; Juan Davila directed the series. “We are pleased to be able to share our creations in a theatrical setting with the wonderful talents of Paul (Tei) from Mad Cat Live steering the ship.” Jim has been busy with his own songwriting over the last few years, bouncing between Miami and Nashville, TN as part of the AbFab publishing company’s stable of writers.

The series explores songwriting through the lens of an informal, sit-down story-telling session, allowing Jim and his guests to uncover the mystery of writing a song. They share stories about their path in music, and what led them to want to become a songwriter. By the end of each episode, Jim and company write a new original song using Camacho’s tried and true “30 minutes or die” hourglass-timed technique, honed during his time with The Goods.

In addition to the house band consisting of the Camacho Brothers and others, plus special guests, the following acts are slated to appear:

  • Jim Camacho
  • Fernando Perdomo
  • Ex Norwegian
  • Elsten Torres
  • Rob Elba
  • Deaf Poets
  • Charlie Pickett

As a special treat for the audience and in the creative spirit of the series, any aspiring or established lyricists, poets or wordsmiths are invited to submit hard copies of their work in an envelope that night. The band will randomly choose one of the entries and write a song on stage during the 15 to 20 minute intermission. The brand new song will be performed at the end of the show.

Tickets are now available online at AdventuresinSongwriting.net and range from $20 to $30, with the Orchestra VIP and Front Row level purchases including a copy of the six-song, Season 1 CD. Discounted tickets are available for students, seniors and military. The Mandelstam Theater is located at 8530 SW 57th Ave, South Miami, FL 33143.

Miami native Jim Camacho is a prolific songwriter, actor, and theatrical composer. His initial foray into writing musicals began with Fools’ Paradise, which was directed and choreographed by the acclaimed Jonathan Cerullo. The show ran as a full production in Miami and played to sold out workshops in New York. He has collaborated with Sesame Street and Disney veteran Noel MacNeal on several productions including Mouse King, which has become a South Florida holiday tradition, enjoying annual sell out performances each year since premiering in 2013.

Camacho co-founded the standout group The Goods, which was active during the 1990s, worked with legendary producer Tom Dowd, won the prestigious “Album of the Year” Florida Jammy award, and reached #1 on the Billboard Florida Radio & Record charts with their single “I’m Not Average”. Their high-energy live show, outstanding musicianship and relentless touring led them to sign their second recording contract, this time with Polygram Records, and be featured in a VH1 documentary. The Goods shared the stage with Pearl JamThe Smithereens, Cracker and MatthewSweet, among others.

Jim spent part of 2018 writing for artists such as Johnny Reid, Jason Morton and the ChesapeakeSons, and Ana Christina Cash, as part of a stable of Nashville-based AbFab publishing house songwriters.
