The Mid-Atlantic Song Contest 

presented by the Songwriters' Association of Washington


Songwriters Performing or Recording Songs of Other Songwriters

SPRSOS (pronounced espressos) is an Honorary Society within SAW in which membership cannot be bought, only awarded to a SAW member who performs a song (in public, recorded, or video-recorded) written by another SAW member. 

The purpose of Espressos is to encourage songwriters, celebrate their work, and strengthen the bonds of friendship within the SAW community. 

After all, what a songwriter wants most (other than a #1 hit) is to hear their songs performed by others. Why not pay it forward? Record your contribution and send a link or file to Paige Powell.
