My name is Morgan Stewart and I am a senior at Summit High School in Bend, Oregon. I started writing little songs and jingles when I was about 6 years old, and ever since then songwriting has become a huge passion of mine. My song “Take Your Time” is about having a love so unconditional toward someone, that you will put your entire life on hold just for them, and wait, and wait, and wait, a lifetime.
I am a senior attending Hermiston High School. I started writing music my freshmen year but it wasn’t until last year, my junior year. That I started spending most of my time writing music. I would like to thank Mr. Rist, my choir teacher, for always encouraging me to keep writing and to keep doing my absolute best!
My name is Max Farrens, and I’m a senior at Bend Senior High School. I have been playing piano classically since I was seven years old, but only began trying to write songs with lyrics and fleshed out instrumentation about a year ago. “Green” was actually the first song I ever completed, and I wrote it on an airplane coming home from Guatemala. It’s about how people mature, change and go in different directions, “shedding” their past in the process. I was inspired to use the metaphor of a tree losing its leaves by all the vegetation and foliage I had seen on my trip. Thanks for listening!
