Paul Sachs and Tim Robinson, two songwriters out of New York, visit Up Close and Acoustic to talk about their process (they are both involved in the Songwriter's Exchange in NYC and worked with songwriting mentor Jack Hardy). Paul grew up on the mean streets of New York City and his songs have an edge to them that only that experience could impart. Tim grew up a poet in rural New York state, and showcases his lyrics in song. Good conversation and music from both Paul Sachs and Tim Robinson. Read the full description.
