Kara DioGuardi is a music creator and industry veteran whose collaborations with P!nk, Katy Perry, Kelly Clarkson, Celine Dion, Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato and more have garnered 11 Grammy nominations and 23 BMI Awards. DioGuardi’s songwriting catalog includes 150 songs from RIAA Platinum albums and 50 charting singles, cumulatively surpassing one billion streams. A trailblazer for women in music, DioGuardi co—founded Arthouse Entertainment two decades ago. The music publishing company nurtured the careers of three—time Grammy—nominated artist Ingrid Andress and songwriter Jon Bellion (Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Dua Lipa) to name a few. Arthouse’s past and present copyrights include hits from Bruno Mars, Eminem, Carrie Underwood, Halsey, Florida Georgia Line, and many more. DioGuardi’s true passion is developing talent, something she did as a judge on two seasons of American Idol and still does today as Berklee College of Music’s Herb Alpert Visiting Scholar. That passion also extends to her philanthropic work: she created the Phoenix Rising Music Program at Phoenix House for those suffering from substance abuse disorders. Her non—profit Inspired Nation gives aspiring artists a platform to tell their stories, thereby developing young voices, empowering them, and enabling them to help others in their generation.
