(5/17/2010) reports that some of the world's leading songwriters will converge in Ubud, Bali May 30 – June 10, 2010, to join forces to create hit singles and album tracks for an number of artists, including former Westlife singer Brian McFadden and Australian artist Delta Goodrem.

10 internationally acclaimed songwriters and producers will huddle in Ubud with Goodrem, McFadden, Australian singer Cassie Davis, DJ Havana Brown, reggae fusion artist Marvin Priest and recording artist Gary Go.

One of the men behind the music camp, Blair MacDonald, said the Bali meeting of the musicians builds on the proven track record of the participating writers and "is a great way to capitalise on this profile and build stronger relationships with labels, their artists and collaborators on the other side of the world."

The Bali creative gathering was the brainchild of Island Records Australia.

MacDonald said: "Ubud is truly Bali's preeminent centre for fine arts, dance and music. And when Michael Taylor, Head of Island Records Australia, and I were discussing putting together an exceptional retreat in a truly unique place, we couldn't think of a more vibrant, creative and inspiring place to conduct it."

Michael Taylor of Island Records Australia was equally enthusiastic about the Ubud summit with Michael Taylor saying the event's location will bring about some hits, adding, "with this calibre of song-writing talent and artistry, and with the beautiful surroundings of Ubud, great music and collaborations are bound to come forth."

Among the musical writer luminaries expected in Ubud are Arnthor Birgisson ( Britney Spears, Leona Lewis, Jennifer Lopez, Janet Jackson, Celine Dion), Fredro (Guy Sebastian, Kelly Rowland, Sugababes & Sinead O Connor), Gary Clark (Natalie Imbruglia, McFly and Demi Lovato), Jeff Miyahara (2009 Japanese Writer and Producer of the Year), Negin Djafari (Miley Cyrus, Kumi Koda and Exile), Paul Mac (Silverchair and George Michael), Robert Conley (Darren Hays, Amy Meredity, Axel Whitehead and Brian McFadden) and Arama Brown (Enrique Iglesia, Pixie Lott and Hanna Montana).
