Here is Lisa Sanders who was in Nashville while recording a new CD. She was nice enough to grace us with her presence and music. She has been writing for many years and spends her time touring between New York and San Diego playing shows along the way.
There are times when creating these shows when we get something unexpected. When David Crossman played this song I was so very impressed with not only the lyrics but with melody is really quite extraordinarily good.
Here is a trailer for the songwriter project I have been working on. "The Road to Music City"
I have footage of 16 hours of Nashville's best songwriters telling us how and why they are chasing the dream of songwriting in Nashville.
Let me introduce Harlan Pease singing some of his "Coffee Series" songs. Harlan is from New England and has become one of the better songwriters/performers I have run across. Harlan was named the 2012 " NashvilleEar.com "Best of the Best" songwriter.
Gerald Smith is a Nashville veteran songwriter who has written songs that have been recorded by George Jones, Collin Raye and many more major stars. Most of Gerald's songs are really very funny with fantastic hooks and amusing stories usually about drinking too much.
Cody Walden singing "Please Dont Call My Dad" at the Fontanel for the NashvilleEar.com Songwriter Stage. I love the lyrics and the story this song portrays. I know when I was a kid, if I got into trouble at school I knew it would be worse when I got home. If someone told on me.
Her is the beautiful Lisa Torres with her brother equally as beautiful Eric. Lisa is a wonderful vocal experience to enjoy.
Here is her song about selling her soul to Nashville played at the Fontanel one evening.
This is a great song!
Here is how to handle a personal relationship that is ending.
I have known Brittany Blaire Andersen for years. She is an actor as well a singer/songwriter and school teacher.
It takes people like this to make up the songwriter community with creative people.
Here is a wonderful couple Sabrina and Tony Marvelli. These two songwriters are as good as it gets. There is absolute joy on both their faces when you watch their performances.They write great songs and play professionally all over the eastern seaboard.
Here is one of the best guitar players I have met in Nashville. I was going to the Back Alley Diner in downtown Nashville one evening to see a guy named Johnathan New. I was looking for people to play my NashvilleEar.com Songwriter Stage held each week at the Gibson Fontanel stage.
This tail-kicking song was played by Bex Marshall at Ground Zero Blues Club in Clarksdale, Mississippi during Juke Joint Festival 2014. Bex rightly tore the place up! Shot on location by Reed R. Radcliffe / TripleRPhotography
Rarely do I sit and watch a songwriter with my mouth open and hanging on each word of the lyrics. I found myself doing exactly that Saturday evening at the Pavilion Coffee House. Karla Davis is so darn good.
This is one amazing performance!
Taylor Dukes was in rare form last Saturday evening at the Pavilion Coffee House.
Every song was better than the last. She has the most mellow voice I have heard in years.
Taylor Dukes will be a big hit in this town soon.
This one of the few times I did not know who I was dealing with. I was out on the internet listening to good songs with lyrics that tells a good story. I ran across a song called "Alabama Gator Oil". It is a song about a bootlegger in northern Alabama.
I saw this written by Gary Cavanauagh about playing in Nashville at an open mic night. I totally agree 100%.He stated 7 great points to remember if you are playing in Nashville or anywhere for that matter. I have held songwriters stages at Bost Harley Davidson and at the Fontanel.
