Victoria Shaw is set to host a new show, Songwriters Under the Covers with Victoria Shaw, where top-selling songwriters share the little-known stories behind their hits along with an intimate, live acoustic performance on stage. The show will premiere on Oct. 16 on the ALL ARTS streaming app and website, which are available nationally, and the ALL ARTS New York-area broadcast channel.
Songwriters featured in the series include Brett James (Carrie Underwood’s “Jesus Take the Wheel”), Desmond Child (Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ on a Prayer”), Angela Hunte (Alicia Keys and Jay-Z’s “Empire State of Mind”), Erika Ender (Daddy Yankee and Luis Fonsi’s “Despacito”), Kevin Cronin (REO Speedwagon’s “Keep on Loving You”), Mark Hudson (Aerosmith’s “Livin’ on the Edge”), and more.
ALL ARTS, the multimedia arts platform launched earlier this year by WNET, announced the launch of the program in collaboration with Shaw and Brighton Entertainment. “Every song has a story, and Songwriters Under the Covers with Victoria Shaw is the ideal vehicle to tell those stories. It’s the perfect balance between great performances and compelling storytelling,” notes Brad J. Fuss, President of Brighton Entertainment and Executive Producer & Director of the show.
“I have been doing these shows for the past 20 years,” said Shaw. “I’m blessed to know a lot of talented, funny, wonderful musicians who are dear friends. I invite those friends who just so happen to be top-selling songwriters from across the pop, rock and country worlds to join me on stage to play their huge hits and reveal what went into creating those iconic songs. It’s very organic, and my shows feel like you’re hanging out in my living room listening in on a bunch of songwriters singing songs, swapping stories and cracking jokes. That’s my goal every night, for my shows to feel like a party at my house.”
