Your Pop Alternative Source
Kierszenbaum will be at this years ADE to share his vision and ideas about what makes great music, how he works with artists and what we can expect to see and hear from him next. In the last two years he has scored several hits with LMFAO, Far East Movement, Ellie Goulding and he is widely credited as being central to the development of the international careers of Lady Gaga, Eminem, Black Eyed Peas and Gwen Stefani.
Can you give a few examples of big dance hits that you have worked on where co-writing has taken place?
"Lots of songs are made through collaboration. I've had the good fortune of being involved in several successful songs as a songwriter and as a label head. As examples, the songs I've written with Far East Movement, Natalia Kills and Lady Gaga where all collaborations with the artists and fellow songwriters. It's fun to work together. There are other instances, like the song "Gomenasai" that I wrote specifically for t.A.T.u. in which I worked alone."
"As a label executive, I've had a chance to A&R songs like "Turn Up the Love" by Far East Movement which the group co-wrote with their Cherrytree label-mate Matthew Koma. The song became a big hit around the world and actually came together while Far East Movement and Matthew were sharing a tour bus on the Cherrytree Tour of Europe in 2011."
