Songwriters are often seen as the unsung heroes of the music business. They often are not in the spotlight or command a lot of attention. That is usually left for those who record and perform the songs written.
Steve Dorff is a well-known, much sought-after, but low-key and very successful songwriter. Inducted into the prestigious Songwriter’s Hall of Fame in New York City in 2018, he is also a three-time Grammy nominee and a six-time Emmy nominee. In addition to that, he’s racked up an astonishing forty BMI awards as a result from his hits his songs recorded by such stellar artists as Barbara Streisand, Celine Dion, Ann Murray, Whitney Houston, Kenny Rogers, Garth Brooks, George Strait, and many others.
In addition to writing for recording artists, Steve has written music for TV, movies, and musical theater.
As if that isn’t amazing enough, Dorff also has “author” as part his resume. That is because he has written a fascinating book about his life titled, “I Wrote That One, Too . . . A Life of Songwriting From Willie To Whitney”. If you like reading the backstories behind popular songs, then you will want this book in your personal library.
