Presenters:
Danny Kortchmar, Legendary GRAMMY nominated guitarist, songwriter and producer (Jackson Browne, Don Henley, James Taylor)
Linda Perry

Danny Kortchmar’s resume reads like a Who’s Who of the music industry. A renown guitarist, producer, songwriter and session musician, Kortchmar has played, produced and written for James Taylor, Don Henley, Carole King, Linda Ronstadt and Jackson Browne, and many many more. As a songwriter, Kortchmar has either written alone or collaborated with numerous artists and has penned such indelible tracks like Don Henley’s “Dirty Laundry,” “All She Wants to Do Is Dance” and “New York Minute,” as well as Jackson Browne’s “Somebody’s Baby” and “Shaky Town,” to name a few. In the 1970’s and 1980’s, Kortchmar was a member of The Section, best known for both their studio and live work in support of some of the top selling singer/songwriters and solo singers in the history of music. Together, The Section helped define the sound of a generation. Recently, Kortchmar put members of The Section back together again and they now perform regularly live around the world as The Immediate Family.
Linda Perry, In the ocean of one-of-a-kind musicians, Linda Perry truly stands out. Her career epitomizes what it means to be successful as an uncompromising and independent musician. Beginning her musical journey as the lead singer of 4 Non Blondes, Linda has had a profound impact on pop culture through her work as a producer and songwriter. Her resounding influence on female empowerment resonates through her sincere artistry, which has helped shape the sounds of musicians such as P!nk, Christina Aguilera, Alicia Keys, Britney Spears, and Adele. Linda was inducted into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame in 2015 as a testament to her status as a musical icon. Most recently, she co-founded We Are Hear, a combination record label, publishing house and management company.
