I Wanna Go: Master Session with Savan Kotecha

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

While still in his teens, songwriter-producer Savan Kotecha would send out dozens of demo tapes a day in hopes of getting just one cut. He landed a major publishing deal when he was only 21, and flew from the US to Sweden to hone his craft with some of the leading writer-producers in pop music. Kotecha has since crafted gigantic hits like Britney Spears's "I Wanna Go," Usher’s "DJ Got Us Fallin' in Love," One Direction's "What Makes You Beautiful" and Maroon 5's "One More Night," among many others, and he’s also the in-house Vocal Producer on X-Factor. Kotecha’s story is one of uncommon talent and incredible commitment. In this candid master session, he’ll give insights into his creative process, and what it takes to transform from an unknown songwriter to a charting hitmaker.
