Legendary songwriter and producer Jeff Barry was in Nashville recently, where he and artist/songwriter Rebecca Lynn Howard met for two day-long co-writing sessions at BMI. Often working with Phil Spector, Barry and former wife Ellie Greenwich composed classics including “Da Doo Ron Ron,” “Then He Kissed Me,” “Be My Baby,” “Do Wah Diddy Diddy,” “Chapel of Love,” “Leader of the Pack,” “River Deep-Mountain High” and many more. They produced and helped launch a young Neil Diamond and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year. On his own, Barry helmed boards for The Monkees, and penned Gary Stewart’s “Out of Hand.” Pictured (l-r): Rebecca Lynn Howard, BMI’s Perry Howard, and Jeff Barry. Photo by Drew Maynard.
