ASCAP Pop Music Awards to Honor KISS, Doobie Brothers, St. Vincent

KISS will receive the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) Founders Award at the org’s annual Pop Music Awards in Los Angeles on April 29.

The invitation-only event will also honor the Doobie Brothers with the Voice of Music Award, and indie darling St. Vincent with the Vanguard Award.

The rock band KISS, formed in the early ’70s, has sold over 100 million albums with hits like “Strutter,” “Shout It Out Loud,” “Detroit Rock City,” “Rock and Roll All Nite,” “Christine Sixteen,” “I Was Made for Lovin’ You” and “Beth.” Over its 40-year career, the band has released 28 gold albums — the most of any American rock band — and in 2014 KISS was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

KISS joins past Founders Award recipients including Jackson Browne, Elvis Costello, Billy Joel, Paul McCartney, Joni Mitchell, Smokey Robinson, Carly Simon, Stevie Wonder and Neil Young.

The Pop Music Awards will precede the annual ASCAP “I Create Music” expo, a three-day songwriting and composing conference at the Loews Hollywood Hotel in Los Angeles.
