You should bring Jud Friedman on! Hot songwriter of some of the best pop songs ever! Run to You by Whitney Houston etc!
I love this podcast!!!!
If youâre going to listen to any of these, listen to Mike Posnerâs episode. But then listen to the rest. I love the open mindedness of all of these writers.
This is hands down the most helpful podcast to listen to if you have ANY interest in being involved in pop music. Pure fire!
I can't tell you how glad I am to have discovered this podcast. I can say it for sure has altered my future in the business in countless ways. Possibly the most important are:- It gives me hope for a newer, kinder generation of songwriters and creators. The community that Ross experiences in the writer's room is absolutely where I want to be! Conversely, if you've been burned in the past, those people aren't necessarily still in the driver's seat.- As silly as it sounds, I STILL tend to forget that the person singing the song didn't necessarily write it. The second you say 'Ryan Tedder wrote "Welcome to New York", I immediately can picture him singing it. LOVE those moments in the podcast!!!!- There's people like me (looking at you, busbee) who are able to do this, and still maintain the life/work balance that they need to prioritize their faith, family and marriage.- The stories. Hearing Mozella or Bebe talk about how their lowest life moments birthed their first smash hits will NEVER get old. Inspiration for years to come!- The most important thing isn't perfection, but resilience. I think it was Ian K. who said something to the effect of "Don't be so precious about your work â just keep writing!"
Love this podcast and the insights that come along with it!
As an artist and manager, Iâm learning so much from this. Appreciate you guys and all the work you do for putting this out!
I can't get enough of this podcast! I tell everyone about it! I had very little knowledge or interest in the music business prior to listening, but I've stuck around for the incredible, enduring stories of people pursuing and achieving their dreams. Itâs fun to get an inside look into many of the songs making up the soundtrack of our lives and Iâm so encouraged by the stories of hustle and victory!
Iâm just a teacher living in NJ, curious about creative people. I started listening to this podcast because I like Jack Antonoff and he was interviewed in one episode. Now I am obsessed and I talk about this show constantly. It opened my eyes to a very fascinating industry I truly knew nothing about. The Ryan Tedder episode was fantastic. Thank you Ross for your insightful interviews and Joe for producing!
If youâre creative and in the music business, this podcast is incredibly inspiring. Always entertaining hearing each journey to success!
