Music Business Worldwide is launching a special new series of features which celebrate the finest professional songwriters on the planet.
Our monthly World’s Greatest Songwriters profiles will showcase in-depth conversations with the creators behind the globe’s biggest hits – discussing the achievements and challenges which have defined their careers, while offering crucial advice to up-and-coming musicians.
The series is being supported by AMRA, the global digital music collection society which strives to maximize value for songwriters and publishers in the digital age.
Our first World’s Greatest Songwriters interview is with Savan Kotecha, who has co-written massive pop smashes such as The Weeknd’s Can’t Feel My Face, One Direction’s What Makes You Beautiful, Maroon 5’s One More Night, Ariana Grande’s Side To Side and many, many more.
Look out for it over the coming week. It’s a cracker, even if we do say so ourselves.
Tim Ingham, Editor of MBW, said: “”The maxim that the music business starts and ends with a song has never seemed more true; look at the creators behind the top global hits today and you’ll find the same names keep cropping up over and over.
“The industry is heavily indebted to these individuals, yet they so often do not receive the recognition they so clearly deserve. MBW is delighted to play our role in celebrating the best in the entire business – in front of the entire business.”
Added Tomas Ericsson, AMRA CEO: “AMRA’s core mission is to drive transparency and value for songwriters, so we’re thrilled to honor these talented and amazing people who create our favorite songs.”Music Business Worldwide
