And The Writer Is....With Ross Golan
Those who write songs have for a long time been one of the most unrecognized in the music industry, yet they are responsible for the hits the masses have on repeat, And The Writer Is... a podcast show hosted by critically acclaimed songwriter Ross Golan that is changing that by putting some of the greatest songwriters from our time into the spotlight to tell their story.
While some guest include household names such as Bebe Rexha and Ryan Tedder of One Republic, many of the guests are largely uknown by name but you'll be suprised to find how many songs they wrote that you know. Listening to the show you get to understand why people write songs, how people write songs and most importantly who the people behind the songs are.
Ross Golan isn't just any interviewer either, he's seen it all and has extensive credits to his name and brings a deep, passionate perspective to the art of songwriting. His experience includes cuts for Maroon 5, Justin Bieber, Nicki Minaj, Michael Bublé, Selena Gomez, Keith Urban, Ariana Grande, Flo Rida, One Direction, Demi Lovato, Jason Derulo, Meghan Trainor, Cee Lo Green, 5 Seconds of Summer, Snoop Dogg, James Blunt, Big Sean and Travis Barker among others. Despite his success he has a humbling, genuine personality and makes for great conversationalist and story teller which probably isnt a suprise given he rights songs.
Ross' relationships both in business as collaborators and personal friends with the guest help to bring about passionate genuine conversations which give us a rare insight into the life struggles and triumphs of some of the best lyricists in the world. When he's not writing songs himself Ross is at the front of the push to help songwriters get recognised in awards and in laws, having helped in getting a songwriters category add to the Grammys in 2018 and has been involved in pushing the conversations to congress about increasing the rates awarded to songwriters by the Copywright Royalty Board, CRB.
