8 week Songwriting Course

I am super excited to announce that I am teaching an 8-week songwriting course at The Santa Monica Music Center! Every week we will deconstruct and analyze the techniques used in creating a well known classic song (new and old)!

Students will then be prompted to create an original song idea and present it in class the following week! Whether you are a newbie or a seasoned writer, this course will inspire and engage you in pushing the boundaries and excelling at your craft!

I am overjoyed to have this opportunity to use my voice for a cause that indeed strikes a personal chord. The Ukranian refugees today are going through a horrific experience that leaves, for those who make it, a lifelong trauma. 

I was a child when everything came crumbling down in my native Yugoslavia, a country that isn't on the maps anymore.I, a Bosnian child was given a second chance at life in Sweden. 

It's a privilege to be there for the Ukranian refugees alongside several of my childhood heroes, Krayzie Bone, Damon Elliot Nomad and the iconic Dionne Warwick!

I sincerely hope these 14 songs will inspire you, make you laugh, cry and access emotions that will help you through this time! 

3 out of the 14 songs on the album are by performed by my alter ego punk/rock/soul band The Midnight Mission.

Some of the highlights from the latest issue of Music Connection: 

(the journalist Miguel Costa came out to our show at Factory West Studios)

"Over the years, Zana Messia has developed a penchant for writing soulful music that incorporates music from different countries."

"One of the band's most eclect live compositions is an unreleased love song called Enuff."
