About Steve Dorff: A Grammy and Emmy-nominated industry stalwart, Dorff is the recipient of 40 BMI awards and 11 Billboard awards. Backbeat Books, an imprint of Hal Leonard, published his memoir, I Wrote That One, Too… A Life In Songwriting from Willie to Whitney in November 2017. The book chronicles his journey from his childhood in Queens to Manhattan to Nashville to his eventual arrival in Los Angeles, sharing anecdotes, advice, and insights into his phenomenal career along the way. This book is a stargazer, as Dorff recounts a host of often-hilarious behind-the-scenes stories that feature the many famous singers, musicians, producers, and lyricists with whom he has collaborated. Steve is currently songwriting, producing and performing at venues across the country.

"Steve wrote a beautiful song called 'Through the Years' that ended up being one of the most well-known and requested songs of my career. His successes have been many, and I've enjoyed watching him achieve so much with his diverse talent. I'm not sure there is anything he can't do." —Kenny Rogers

"Steve is one of the most talented songwriters I've known over the years, and, even more importantly, he's one of the kindest and most humble. It's a treat that he's opening up about his life story, so dig in and enjoy!" —Donald Passman
