L.A. and London Residential

If you are going to London or Los Angeles for sessions, meetings or other projects, you can apply for a stay in one of the houses in these two cities.

The work residences can be applied for by Koda members and are targeted at anyone working in the popular and commercial field. You can also apply for transport costs related to your trip.

Only Koda members can apply for these one-week stays in L.A. or London. We welcome both songwriters, composers and producers working with the popular and commercial field of music.

Working accommodation in London and LA is available for songwriters, composers, lyricists and producers in the popular and commercial fields. DPA supports working residencies in the two cities for meetings, co-writing, networking and creating new music. The project should involve collaborators who can promote the export of the music.

Support for flights and other transport costs such as trains can also be applied for.
