Interview with SACHA SKARBEK, songwriter for James Blunt, Carrie Underwood, Jason Mraz - Jul 13, 2009
“When we finished writing [‘You’re Beautiful’] we looked at each other and went, ‘Wow, actually that’s pretty good.’ But we certainly didn’t think, ‘There’s our big hit!’”
With two Ivor Novello awards, a Grammy nomination, and songwriting credits for Jason Mraz (US Top 5 & UK Top 10), Duffy (UK No.1 & US Top 5) and James Blunt (US & UK No.1) – not least a co-writer credit for international megahit ‘You’re Beautiful’ - under his belt, songwriter Sacha Skarbek cuts an impressive figure in the industry.
London-based Skarbek sat down with HitQuarters to talk about the mechanics of collaborative songwriting, the difficulties of writing in the country music style, and the genesis of ‘You’re Beautiful’.
