GRAMMY Museum Releases Two Songwriters Hall Of Fame Programs From Archive
The GRAMMY Museum continues to roll out exciting and exclusive content online while its physical doors are closed until further notice in light of COVID-19. Tomorrow, June 11, the Museum will release two Songwriters Hall of Fame programs from its archive, including "Legends In The Round" and "Chart Toppers: Today's Star-Making Hit Songwriters/Producers."
True to its title, "Legends In The Round" brought together songwriting giants Hal David, Lamont Dozier, Mac Davis, Nickolas Ashford, and Valerie Simpson for a discussion on from Oct. 19, 2010, moderated by GRAMMY and Oscar -winning composer/songwriter and SHOF inductee Paul Williams.
"Chart Toppers: Today's Star-Making Hit Songwriters/Producers" engaged contemporary pop songwriters on Oct. 18, 2017 for a discussion of the craft, including late songwriter/producer busbee, plus Dave Bassett, Warren "Oak" Felder, and Teddy Geiger. The conversation was moderated by acclaimed music journalist and author, Shirley Halperin, Executive Editor of Music at Variety. You can read more about the intimate discussion at the SHOF website.
The timing of tomorrow's release is to honor of the original date the 2020 SHOF Induction & Awards Gala was scheduled before being postponed to next June. The exclusive content offering also celebrates the 10-year partnership between the two music organizations.
Both programs feature these iconic and contemporary songwriters sharing behind-the-scenes stories about their craft and unique collaborations. For more information, visit www.grammymuseum.org.
