Last but not least this evening we have Mr. Brad Yunek from Idaho! He has one song tonight. Take us home strong, Brad. Good luck! More below on Brad:

I have been happily married to my wife Susan for over 33 years. We have been blessed to be the parents of two incredible kids, Heather 14, and Joshua 9. For over 20 years, I made my living as an equipment mechanic. Since 1996, I have been so fortunate to work for two good friends who own and operate Western Pleasure Guest Ranch in Sandpoint, Idaho. The ranch is also home for my family.

Songwriting has always been a big part of who I am. I wrote my first song back in junior high, and I have been writing ever since. It wasn’t until 2004 though, after some encouragement from my wife, that I started out down this road of writing to the commercial markets. I love shaping a story, be it a serious one, or something just for fun. I love it when someone hears one of my songs, and they get it; they understand and appreciate what the song is saying. I so enjoy creating something that did not exist prior to me writing it.

The themes of most of the songs that I write seem to revolve around God, family, friends, love of country, and people just tryin’ to get through this thing we call life. I am a member of BMI, SongU, and Global Songwriters Connection.

As of December of 2014, I’m beginning to see some commercial success. My song “I Want To” was cut by Australian artist Brett Clarke for his “Standing Back” album. The song has been pushed to Australian country radio stations as the lead single from the album.

My intention is to always be the kind of writer that other writers want to write with, and I
I will continue to refine my craft in the pursuit of having commercial success with my songwriting!

We have another Jessica up tonight and she is from Ohio. Jessica Weinberg has two songs for us tonight. Take it away Jessica, good luck!

Jessica Weinberg’s story is unique for a songwriter. She was born with a combination of heart defects and after some early struggles, was also diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome, a form of Autism Spectrum Disorder. Instead of allowing her disability to be a hindrance, she let it be a motivator for her success.
And succeed, she has. Jessica obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Creative Writing in 2004 and a Juris Doctor in 2007. The written word has always been Jessica’s expressive outlet and she has been a published author in several journals, magazines, and newspapers. Using the skills she learned in school and in life, she works as a Legal Researcher, has worked and volunteered with many non-profits, and is known in her community as an often-effective advocate for public transportation. Still, her passion is in her lyrics.
Jessica listened to country music as a young teen and was drawn to the lyrics being sung by '90s superstars such as Garth Brooks, Reba McEntire, Trisha Yearwood, and George Strait. She soon began writing her own songs and brought with her a unique perspective on life, love, heartache, and struggle that can only come from overcoming potentially life-threatening health conditions and living with disabilities. She strives to tackle slices of life not often addressed in music and takes different approaches to the usual topics.
Jessica is a member of several songwriter organizations including Global Songwriters Connection and NSAI and has been a semi-finalist and finalist in the VH-1 Song of the Year Competition. Jessica’s focus within the music industry is crystal clear; she is bringing her mastery of the written word to life through lyrics.

Jessica WeinbergNot me singing on the demos. But the first song of mine you heard tonight, about the passing-away of a canine companion, actually incorporated three different dogs I've had. One of whom passed away just a year ago today. (Later on in the song silly little things the dog does are described.)11 hours ago   ·  1

Our next writer tonight is Jessica Stewart. Jessica is from Georgia and we can't wait to hear her song titled "Look Back". More on Jessica below:

Jessica Stewart is a powerful musical spirit. Infusing a blend of Americana, Folk, Country, and Pop/Rock style into her music. She compels listeners to join the honest and entertaining musical journey through everyday life emotion.
Growing up, in a small town in Georgia, the love of music started at a young age. The house filled with music from her parent’s record collection which included Elvis Presley, Conway Twitty, Eddie Rabbit, Waylon Jennings, Don Williams, Crystal Gayle and many others served as a starting point. At the age of four Jessica Stewart advised her mother she wanted to listen to only Barbara Mandrell music after seeing “The Barbara Mandrell and Mandrell Sister Show” on television. That declaration would be the first brick in the foundation of the musical influences chosen by Jessica Stewart to shape the path she would travel. Of course, Barbara Mandrell was not the only music playing in the house for too long. The hits of Country Music radio in the late 80’s and early 90’s played an important role of influence especially the albums of Dolly Parton and Reba McEntire. Jessica Stewart recently stated, “I am sure I was the only one in my 7th grade class listening to the music of Bob Wills and TLC. I have always loved music and never been opposed to listening to anything at least once.”
During the summer of 2011, after a music event, her brother advised her to seriously consider focusing on songwriting and that conversation would prove to be a pivotal moment. Jessica Stewart would find herself intrigued with the songwriting catalog of Shelby Lynne, Lucinda Williams and Robert Ellis confirming the direction she wanted her music to go. Soon after the conversation with her brother, Jessica Stewart would play her music at venues in front of crowds (as large as large as 3,000) at Anderson Music Hall in North Georgia to an intimate music setting found at the renowned Eddie’s Attic, Atlanta, GA

Congrats Jayne! Jimmy needs a copy of your first one! Let's hear the second, so proud of you! ... See MoreSee Less

Jayne Sachs is our next songwriter this evening. Jayne has two songs for us, go girl!

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. I am an artist in indie/alt pop and have enjoyed taking elements of how I write for that genre and bringing them into country. It's fun and I love the outcomes. I've written with a few hit writers in Nashville and plan to keep coming to Nashville to continue writing and building relationships with publishers.

Everyone is doing so awesome with their craft tonight! These encouraging words came from Jimmy himself! Let's keep it going strong! Coming up next is Dave Quirk from Virginia. Dave has two songs tonight, good luck! Find out a little bit about Dave below:

Dave Quirk grew up in Klamath Falls, OR surrounded by the music of his large family. Dave and his six siblings heard the clear sound of the violin and sharp tap of the drums played by their grandfather and uncle from an early age. He longed to make music of his own, but his father’s postman salary wouldn’t allow for the children to have private lessons. Not one to be held back, Dave taught himself to play the guitar and drums on instruments passed down to him. He quickly found his voice while plunking on the strings of his guitar and a love of music was born. Dave wouldn’t realize until later what a profound effect that music would have on his life.
After high school, Dave joined the Navy, but his passion for good music never waned. He listened to artists like the Eagles, Black Crowes, Garth Brooks, Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, and John Denver; and played rhythm guitar for a few bands along the way. For 23 years, Dave continued to serve his country through the Navy and learned many great lessons, including the importance of perseverance. After retiring from the service, Dave committed himself to pursing the dream that had begun years ago and started writing songs.
In the three years since Dave began writing, he has been fortunate to experience the satisfaction of seeing the joy his music brings to others, whether it be a tapping foot or swaying hip. Dave describes his music as rock flavored country with old school appeal. Always ready to learn, Dave received his Songwriter Master Certificate from the Berklee College of Music in September 2013. He has been placed on the NSAI Writer’s “Ones to Watch” list twice, and most recently was chosen to participate in the first GSC FOCUS event in 2014.
