Neil Sedaka's impressive fifty year career has seen him become one of the first teen pop sensations of the 50’s, evolve into a relevant songwriter for himself and other artists in the 60’s, re-emerge as a superstar in the 70’s, and remain a constant force as writer and performer to this date--all thanks to the countless songs he has written, performed, and produced that continue to inspire artists and audiences around the world.
Mr. Sedaka joins author Paul Zollo for Episode 11 of Songwriters on Songwriting, LIVE for a conversation with brief performances, Monday, June 13, 2pm at The Songwriting School of Los Angeles.
Special Guest: Longtime Sedaka co-writer and instructor at The Songwriting School Phil Cody. The two penned such classics as "Laughter in the Rain" and "Solitaire" together, earning them 2-Time ASCAP Song of the Year Award Honors. Phil Cody's beloved lyric writing class Lyrics with Phil Cody is offered THIS SUMMER, 6 Monday nights starting 7/18.
