Interview with JULIE FROST, songwriter for Black Eyed Peas, composer of 2010 Eurovision Song Contest winner - Feb 14, 2011
“I always thought, this is a huge hit song, but then it never went anywhere; it never got released; it never got any play ... until that little Eurovision thing”
It’s been a rare old 12 months for songwriter Julie Frost. After many years of maintaining a modest industry profile, her career suddenly burst into glorious full bloom when a chance debut publishing deal penned with EMI president Jon Platt introduced Frost to the world of Top 40 songwriting. Co-writing sessions with pop high rollers Rodney ‘Darkchild’ Jerkins, Chuck Harmony and Toby Gad have followed, and we’ll be seeing the first fruits of this new beginning throughout 2011, beginning with Black Eyed Peas’ upcoming single ‘Just Can’t Get Enough’. If that wasn’t enough, last May saw Frost pluck another feather for her cap when her song ‘Satellite’ won the Eurovision Song Contest for Germany.
In this interview with HitQuarters, the L.A.-based writer talks about winning a publishing deal at long last, finding the X-factor with Darkchild, and reveals the inspiration behind the ‘Satellite’ that orbited the tops of charts all across Europe last year.
