ISA • The Songwriter Interviews

When the International Songwriters Association was founded, one of our ambitions was to locate and interview as many of the world's legendary songwriters as we could, and in particular those non-performing writers who had penned some of world's best loved tunes, but whose own lives and indeed songwriting careers, remained a total mystery to the general public.

Since then, we have managed to meet with and interview quite literally hundreds of tunesmiths, many of whom had never been spoken to before by any other publication or any other organisation.

In doing so, we have been privileged to talk with some of the wonderful people whom we have admired for so long and to keep their stories and achievements alive, and in their own words.

Below is just a tiny selection of the people who have been profiled by the International Songwriters Association over the years, either as songwriters or as songwriter-publishers.
