An Interview with William “Mickey” Stevenson

Our friends Paul and Scott over at Songcraft sat down with Mickey Stevenson, the songwriter known for building the Motown sound and launching Marvin Gaye’s career. While young Marvin was determined on pursuing a career in Jazz music, Marvin was able to persuade the stubborn artist to record vocals on Gospel and R&B demos so Marvin could hear his own potential.

Along with hits like “Dancing in the Street,” Mickey has landed songs with Diana Ross, Stevie Wonder, Bruce Springsteen, The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Rod Stewart, and more.
