Top 10 songwriters of today

A new poll has been released that reveals who Brits have voted as the best songwriter of today and of all time. It includes a mix of UK artists and some from across the pond. Though not in the top 10 list, Stormzy and Alex Turner were rated highly amongst Generation Z but Ed Sheeran took 36% of the overall vote for the best songwriter today and took second spot in the top 10 of all time with 5%. So who made the list? Drumm roll please…

1. Ed Sheeran

2. Adele

3. Bruno Mars

4. Lady Gaga

Joint 5th. Noel Gallagher and Beyonce

Joint 6th. Calvin Harris and Dave Grohl

7. Justin Beiber

8. Damon Albarn

The survey was conducted by research company Kantar TNS on behalf of BIC®, the stationery brand, which is running a new songwriting competition for people aged 13 to 24. The Write and Shine competition will see one talented songwriter record his or her winning song in a studio and – if they are also a singer – they could have the chance to perform it on the main stage at The Big Festival.
