Janis Ian

Wrote first song at age 12, was published at 13, made record at 14, had a hit at 15, was a has-been at 16. All up hill from there. Things I recorded myself that went gold or platinum and/or were Grammy nominated include "At Seventeen", "Society's Child", Between the Lines, Aftertones, Janis Ian, the audio book "Patience & Sarah" with Jean Smart, and my own autobiography "Society's Child", which won a Grammy three years ago. I have 10 Grammy nominations in 8 different categories for my own work, which astounds me, as well as two Audie nominations (one win).
I've had my songs recorded by artists as diverse as John Mellencamp, Nina Simone, and Joan Baez and Amy Grant. They're used a lot in films, and I'm always happy to hear from younger (not in years but experience or fame) film makers looking for music - I own about 2/3 of my catalogue, so we can usually find something and work it out to everyone's benefit.
All of which doesn't mean a thing if I couldn't say that I've been doing this 50+ years, and I sitll love doing it!!!
