Sodajerker is a songwriting team from Liverpool in the United Kingdom. Founded by co-writers Simon Barber and Brian O’Connor, Sodajerker is the creative outlet for two friends raised on the celebrated songbooks of such luminaries as Lennon and McCartney, Bacharach and David, Holland-Dozier-Holland, Goffin and King and The Chic Organisation.

Like the profession from which they take their name, Sodajerker use their hard-won skills to conjure artistry from the everyday. Their songs have been heard on radio stations around the world and on a number of film soundtracks.

Simon and Brian are also the co-hosts of the Sodajerker On Songwriting podcast, a programme featuring interviews with some of the world’s most successful songwriters. Subscribe in Apple Podcasts or listen to episodes here on the site.
