Song Confessional X Hotel Magdalena Present: An Artist Residency Program

Back to Events Page


Started by Austin musicians, Walker Lukens and Zac Catanzaro, Song Confessional was initially conceived as a music festival activation. Beginning this summer, Song Confessional’s story recording booth will live permanently at Hotel Magdalena.

Come on down to the booth 8 am – 8 pm to recount any type of story – old, new, long, short, coming of age, fish out of water – we’re all ears. Confessions will be reviewed by local songwriters, and select stories will be developed into original songs with the chance to be featured on the Song Confessional podcast. Selected confessors will receive their original song pressed into a 7″ record.


Now Open in the Valet Lobby | No appointment needed | Open 8 AM – 8 PM 

We are thrilled to announce an ongoing artist residency program in conjunction with Song Confessional’s new home at Hotel Magdalena, now open in the valet lobby.

Resident musicians will select one confession during their stay to transform into an original song. Come confess at the Song Confessional booth during an artist’s stay for a chance to be featured by them. Stay tuned for more upcoming artists in residency.
