Songwriters on The Accompanist

Songwriters, Composer and Lyricists featured on The Accompanist

Very often in Musical Theatre we know the shows, even the characters and the stars who perform the role. Who we don't always know are the Songwriters, those lyricists and composers who create their masterpieces and many times remain unknown to us all, even if their soaring melodies and memorable lyrics may be second nature to us. Over these pages we aim to shed a little light on those, without whom, there would be no melodies or words - The Songwriters.
