The Other Songs Live celebrates the most distinguished living songwriters, offering unparalleled access to both legendary and emerging talent. Audiences can expect a combination of performances, interviews, and storytelling, bringing them ‘backstage’ as The Other Songs delves into the origins of some of the greatest songs ever written.

The show takes place during Ivors Week – an appreciation of songwriters and their craft building up to the iconic awards show, The Ivors with Amazon Music, on 23 May.

This year’s line-up includes Bernie Taupin, one of the all-time greatest lyricists and winner of eight Ivor Novello Awards, who will take the stage to shedd light on one of the most successful songwriting partnerships in history with Elton John. Neo-soul titans Gabriels, whose frontman Jacob Lusk famously duetted “Are You Ready For Love” with Elton at Glastonbury, also join the line-up alongside other modern favourites such as British songwriter Tom Odell, whose timeless classic “Another Love” now has over 2 billion streams globally, and the award-winning UK vocalist Celeste. Odell and Celeste have both been crowned Songwriter of the Year at The Ivors.

Continuing the line-up: Grammy and Ivor Novello award-winning Little Mix collaborator KAMILLE, long-time collaborator of Donna Summer Pete Bellotte, platinum-selling songwriter Jin Jin, who has written for some of the UK’s biggest artists such as Jess Glynne, Clean Bandit and Raye, German-producer Toby Gad, who wrote John Legend’s biggest hit “All Of Me”, Fergie’s “Big Girls Don’t Cry” and Beyoncé’s “If I Were A Boy”, and UK singer-songwriter Dyo, who has penned hits for the likes of Iggy Azalea and Maroon 5.

Other performers include chart-topping Irish singer-songwriter Cian Ducrot, New York sibling band Infinity Song and rising star Sam Wilkinson.
