Featuring Mark D Sanders and Jason Matthews. Bringing their stories and songs from Nashville to the North Shore.

About the Artists:


Jason Matthews was born in Harrell’s Store, North Carolina. At fifteen he saw Eric Clapton on television and became obsessed with writing songs.

His first industry fan, WRFX dj Macon in Charlotte, gave Matthews’ demo to legendary musical comedy team Pinkard and Bowden, who subsequently invited Matthews to be their roadie and in-house writer. After a year on the road, he settled in Nashville to pursue his dream of becoming a hit songwriter.

In 2006, he landed his first Number One with Billy Currington’s version of his song, “Must Be Doin’ Something Right”.


California native Mark Daniel Sanders was a literature major, a basketball player and a surfer who, at the age of twenty- nine, came to Nashville to try for the title of Songwriter.

After ten years of “paying his dues”, his career skyrocketed in the early 1990s.

Sanders has penned a multitude of career-defining, award-winning songs and No. 1 hits for a slew of artists, including “I Hope You Dance” (Lee Ann Womack).
