Saunders Street Records, a homegrown indie record label, means to "empower the music community by providing useful and relevant products and services," according to its Web site. Support that goal this afternoon at Songwriter Sundays at Café Cedar (2 East Second Street, Parkville, 816-505-2233), held the third Sunday of the month. Scheduled performers include Rick Lally, an Olathe singer-songwriter who has composed more than 100 original pieces; Heather Thornton, the sultry voiced, fresh-faced girl next door (who might mix a Sublime cover in with her originals); and jazz and experimental guitarist Jeramy Johnston. The host is the musician behind the record label's name, William Saunders. The tunes go from 2 to 6 p.m., and there's no cover.
