BMI “How I Wrote That Song” Panel: Los Angeles

BMI will pair with the Los Angeles Times to present the second annual “How I Wrote the Song” panel from 1:00-3:00 p.m., at the Key Club (9039 Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles).

Mirroring the format of 2007’s sold-out forum, another elite cross-section of established hitmakers, including Rodney Jerkins, Chris Daughtry, Mos Def, Ben Moody of Evanescence, Polow Da Don and others, will discuss their work, the raw ideas and the occasionally idiosyncratic processes pooled into composing songs that resonate with a broad spectrum of listeners.

Moderated by BMI’s Vice President, Writer Publisher Relations Catherine Brewton and Los Angeles Times Music Critic Ann Powers, the event is open to the public.

Advance tickets are available for $10 through Ticketmaster at or the Key Club box office. Admission at the door will be $20.
