Hello, Ellen!

My name is Tera Lynn Sheerin. I am 18 years old, born in Scranton, Pennsylvania.
I am a singer/songwriter, and have been since the age of 13.
During the summer I was 12 years old, my older brother gave me a guitar. I hadn't taken any lessons, and it was tough, but still, by myself, kept at it for months. I used books and websites online to help teach myself. Before long, I was singing and playing covers of some of my favorite rock bands such as Green Day and The Doors. Finally, I even began writing my own songs!
I now have a total of over 50 original songs, and an 11 track rough draft CD album I've created myself.
I've recently just returned from an 8 month long high school exchange program to Japan, which I must say opened many new doors for my writing, inspiring me and teaching me so much about the world and its variety of cultures. I will now be repeating my senior year, lost from my exchange.
These days, I spend my time with close friends and family. I am very involved in my school Drama Club, and hope to someday study musical theatre, as it is also a great interest of mine. However, these plans can be easily adjusted if you could somehow give me the opportunity to live up to my dreams of sharing my music with the world.
Please contact me! Please help me reach these dreams!
ありがとうございます!
Thank-you!


-Tera

Hi Ellen, I'm just a high school junior who had my heart ripped out. I wrote this song to help me get over the heartache. It has helped.

Can't submit my demo due to "Website not available" error. So I'll try this instead...

My name is Nick Straight. I am 30 years old and live in Spokane, Washington. I've been playing guitar since I was 8 and writing music since I was 14. I've always been out playing my music as a side gig, but now, it's time to make it happen for real. I'm going through a difficult time in life right now. My wife of 9 years, Angela, and I are splitting up because she wants me to have the freedom to pursue my dreams. I love her with all my heart and want to stay, but I realize that she is right. I'll never know what I can do, unless I take the risk and put everything I have on the line to realize my dreams. My music is always honest and from the heart. Each song I write tells another piece of my story, in the best way I know how. Music is the universal language and has the power to change the world. It is my dream to touch people's hearts and let them know that someone else out there has felt the same way that they have. Music has given me so much joy and has allowed me to express myself on a deeper level than just words alone. My influences have been the great singer/songwriters: James Taylor. Cat Stevens. Neil Young. John Lennon. Etc... To have the chance to play my music on your show or to be lucky enough to be part of ElevenEleven Records, would truly be a privilege and honor for a music man who has waited his whole life to share himself with the world through his music. I am very hopeful - about this opportunity and a chance for a new life. Thank you for your consideration.

This song is for my dear wife and I recorded it on our first night apart...

hope you will find this a potential material for your record label, and as a tribute for dear Cory Monteith.

Sincerely,
Medel

Hi Ellen, I've been trying to send you a video of my Grandson.... He has been posting on youtube for over 4 years and has around 60 covers and originals but I can't figure out how to send you his "Door to Door" video or any of the others... So maybe you could have a look... It's under harrymoe13 on youtube.... Thanks Ellen... Your show is the only one that my 90 year old Mom watches because it makes her feel good even if she doesn't know all those "New Stars" you have on. Love you too. By the way my sister passed away 15 years ago but her special number was 1111 and at least once and sometimes twice a day I look up at the clock and see 1111. It's my little reminder to say hello to her, she was a very spiritual person, you and your humor also reminds me of her. Thank you for your time Susan
