During a songwriting session several years ago, Scott was paging through Jeff's notebook when he came across a title written across an otherwise blank page: "Don't Go Drinking on an Empty Heart". Scott was delighted by the title, especially when Jeff said "Every songwriter should have a song called 'Don't Go Drinking on an Empty Heart'."
This simple interaction became legend among Rochester songwriters over the following decade. Eventually 25 or more local songwriters had a song by that title. Sarah Long Hendershot decided to organize a concert featuring all of the songs, and "If All Rochester Wrote the Same Song" was born.
