A Conversation with Grammy Award Winning Songwriter (and Knitter!), Siedah Garrett
This week on the CRAFT*ish Podcast, Vickie reconnected with an amazing woman she met at a Vogue Knitting Live conference where she was the keynote speaker. Siedah Garrett is most publicly well known as the co-writer of the song Man in the Mirror (sung by the iconic, Michael Jackson), the Grammy Award Winning & Oscar Nominated writer of “Love You I Do” from the movie Dream Girls, and as the back up singer for frankly, too many of the vocal greats to list here.
What the masses may not know about her, though is that she’s also an amazing knitting and crochet designer. During their conversation, we talked about how she got started as a singer, which legendary producer pushed her to song write, her childhood introduction to knitting and crochet, and about her utter enjoyment over making statement pieces for celebrities like Madonna.
Listen on iTunes, Soundcloud, or Stitcher, then go to the Show Notes page to see photos of Siedah’s stitch work, and listen to her original audition for Michael Jackson’s “Man in the Mirror” (co-written by Siedah!)
