Join Hall of Fame Songwriter Holly Knight for an evening of performances featuring special guest Lena Hall at the Cutting Room on Dec. 19!

Celebrating her new book, I Am The Warrior: My Crazy Life Writing the Hits and Rocking the MTV Eighties is legendary songwriter Holly Knight. She is the songwriter behind Tina Turner’s "The Best,” “Better Be Good To Me;” Pat Benatar’s “Love is a Battlefield,” “Invincible;" Aerosmith’s “Rag Doll;” Patty Smyth's “The Warrior;” Animotion’s “Obsession"…and much, much more. Eighties music lovers won't want to miss this special event!

I AM THE WARRIOR With a foreword by Tina Turner, author Holly Knight offers a juicy and provocative love letter to the 80s against the backdrop of her creative process of bringing her chart-topping, mega-hits to life through the timeless vocals of Pat Benatar, Tina Turner, Patty Smyth, Rod Stewart, John Waite, Chaka Khan, Bon Jovi, Cheap Trick Heart, Meatloaf, KISS and many more.

Knight, who is a Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee recounts, “I’ve been fighting my whole life for the things that mattered to me. It started when I was a child,” Knight confides, “but as I got older, I was able to articulate in a more elegant and creative manner what was most important to me: independence, autonomy, expressing my own voice, anarchy in all its glory, and, essentially, telling people to fuck off in a clever way.”

Taking readers back to the go-go eighties of big hair, extra-large egos, wild parties, and wildly popular music videos, I AM THE WARRIOR reveals how Holly Knight broke into the rock scene and became one of its most in-demand songwriters. With raw honesty, remarkable humility, and lots of humor. To learn more about Holly Knight, visit

The event begins at 7pm. VIP Tickets are available for $56.15 which includes a copy of Holly's book. General admission is $35.50 which does not include the book.
