Welcome song writers, song lovers, song singers and other casual misfits of the creative rodeo that is modern music. SAW hopes to be your best resource for tools, tips, ideas and relationships. If you seek opporTUNEities to share your gift, come and join us as we make the solitary suffering that is songwriting an enriching community-based experience (or at least try real hard). Roam our pages and social media outposts, ask questions, attend functions and otherwise make yourself heard and seen. If we help you find rhyme, that is our reason. SAW is a community of volunteers, so we need you to participate. Make yourself at home and get to work on your next song.
