A star is born.

The last artist tonight is Jayne Sachs. Check out Jayne's bio and photo below.

My name is Jayne Sachs (pronounced Jane Sax). I'm a songwriter from Dayton, Ohio and have been concentrating solely on writing for the country genre. Having been an artist in indie/alt pop, I love bringing elements of how I've written for that genre and sliding them into country songs. It's fun and the outcomes are rewarding! I've written with a few hit writers in Nashville and plan to keep coming to Nashville to continue writing and building relationships with writers and publishers. I co-write because I truly appreciate the coming together of creative minds, but I write solo even more. Tonight's submissions reflect a co-write and two solo writes.

Now we have a newcomer to our POP Events, Michael Morrison. Check out Michael's photo and bio below.

Michael is a 39 year old from Winslow, Maine, currently living in Waterville, Maine. After “fiddling around” with guitar and singing for several years, the idea of being a professional songwriter just came to him, out of the blue, a few years ago. He has heard from so many strangers in the area that he needs to take what he has to the next level. He’s working on that now.
Currently, he is avidly reading books, watching videos and looking for good advice on all aspects of songwriting in order to better his writing. He has been a member of NSAI for the last three years and is currently a member of GSC as well. He plays regular solo acoustic gigs in his area where he includes original songs to great reviews. Though his original songs are more closely related to country, he has the ability and willingness to create melodies fit for most genres of music.
Michael was raised up on country music and oldies. Then as he got older, he developed a love and appreciation for many other types of music as well. His love of music in general drove him to teach himself how to play guitar and sing, just because he wanted to do it so badly. Starting around age 16, he was in a few bands off and on over the next ten years strictly as a guitarist. After years of playing in rock bands, he realized he was mostly passionate about playing his acoustic guitar and playing songs that were more personal and from the heart.
Although in search of local co-writers, he is writing on his own, working on continually bettering himself as a songwriter every moment he can. His ultimate goal is to get his songs placed in movies, television and recorded by other artists. He would like to get into a position where he is known for quality songs and sought after, leading to a long lasting career in writing.
