"Get away, write a song and meet some good people. A songwriting retreat where like-minded souls gather, and quietness, time and collaboration quench your tired creative mind. We started as strangers and after two days were allies, a songwriting sisterhood. Together we unfurled in the small Australian country town of New Norcia. The combination of a simple schedule, humble Spanish architecture and space made it possible for me to work on music and for music to work on me. Delilah created a balanced retreat that was open, welcoming and challenging. A memorable weekend that was fun and reflective and edged me closer in the direction of creative growth. This retreat is a winner in my books, just say’n." - Love Polanski
