After hearing her perform, he invited her to participate in a 10-week songwriting workshop sponsored by the Songwriters Hall of Fame (SHOF) from April to June of 2006. She could not afford the $180 fee, so he covered the cost for her. At the end of the workshop, she was chosen by Leone to be one of eight songwriters featured at the June 2006 SHOF New Artist Showcase. He encouraged her to begin performing and soon she was playing shows at various New York venues. He also invited her to perform at another Artists Showcase on [[2007/April#April 6|April 6, 2007]]. Del Rey mentions Bob in a leaked 2007 live performance of "[[Disco (song)|Disco]]", "[[Marilyn (song)|Marilyn]]" and "[[For K, Pt. 2 (song)|For K, Pt. 2]]", where beforehand she remarks "I gave Bob a list of songs I was gonna play, cause he wanted one, but I'm gonna change them all up."
