    NYC Singer/Songwriter Craig Lawrence & Band LIVE! @ The Inspired Word All-Star Showcase, Wednesday, Dec. 4, 2013, One and One Bar/Restaurant, Nexus Lounge, Manhattan, New York City. Hosted by Nathan P.

    With vocal confidence and charisma to match Anthony Keidis or Jack Johnson, strong hooks and clever backing arrangements, New York City singer songwriter Craig Lawrence’s songs are pure fun, romance and passion. Craig’s lyrics are rounded out by warm guitar chords, groovy percussion, organs, heartfelt strings and sweet harmonies that radiate a true sense of excitement, and his understanding of strong pop songs is immediately evident. His genuine, romantic and fun personality shines through his sunny pop every step of the way, and fans of songwriters like Jason Mraz and Fionn Regan will take an immediate liking to the earnest and summers-of-youth quality of the music. For more info, check out his website @http://craiglawrenceonline.com/ and follow him on Twitter @ http://twitter.com/craiglawrence1.

    The Inspired Word is one of the country's hottest open mic/performance series. Produced by longtime journalist and former Village Voice columnist Mike Geffner, it happens weekly in downtown Manhattan, New York City.

    NYC Spoken Word Artist/Poet Lee Sachs features @ The Inspired Word All-Star Showcase, Thursday, Jan. 16, 2014, Bareburger East Village, Manhattan, New York City. Hosted by Eric Lee.

    This is the 1st of 2 parts.

    Lee Sachs wrote, directed and starred in his award-winning thesis film "Wild Sound." That short film earned him an MFA from NYU, received many awards and favorable press in the New York Times and the Village Voice. He's wrote for a Hollywood producer that called him "bubbeleh," wrote a screenplay for a vanity project about a wealthy Iranian antique dealer financed by a wealthy Iranian antique dealer and scouted locations for Woody Allen. His early performances mixed music, stories and performance art at venues like the Knitting Factory, The Bottom Line, PS122, Dixon Place. Once the internet swallowed us whole, Lee got sucked into information technology still honing his writing covertly in a secluded location. Disguised as an "IT consultant" for companies like Verizon, Avis and Jaguar he grew a respectable practice in User Experience. Now, he emerges from that disguise and tears the lid off business, technology, advertising and stupid buzzwords like monetizing eyeballs in his one-man show. Lee lives outside New York City with his wife, son and a lot of cats. His website includes the Museum of Marketing Madness, http://www.madnessmuseum.com & http://www.leesachs.com.
