In the music industry, the right song can skyrocket an aspiring singer to the top of the charts.
Elvis Presley initially met with little success in the music industry. He was repeatedly rejected by producers, radio station managers and vocal groups until he performed one of Arthur Crudup’s blues compositions in the studio. This combination of the right voice and the right composer established Elvis as a major force in the Memphis music industry and launched his meteoric rise to the top of the charts. Without “That’s All Right,” Elvis Presley might have remained an obscure footnote in the pages of music history. That single song was the beginning of a musical legend that endures to the present day.
The Role of the Songwriter
Many popular performers began their careers or spent significant amounts of time in the songwriting industry. Roy Orbison worked alongside Elvis Presley at Sun Records and received royalties for a number of original songs performed by other artists during his illustrious career in the music business. Soundtrack composers like Marvin Hamlisch, John Williams and Ennio Morricone have created musical works that are just as memorable as the movies they accompany. The importance of songwriters, composers and musical producers in the entertainment industry cannot be overstated. These creative artists produce works of lasting value for modern culture.
