EXPO-ITES MAKING NEWS, NOISE AND $!

WOW, THREE recent placvements on Jane By Design, the television series which airs on the ABC Family channel. Our good friend and music supervisor Madonna Wade Reed has been a huge asset to our songwriters. Congratulations to the following Expo-ites and THANK YOU Madonna Wade Reed and ABC Family!

Also, Nashville's Merry Ellen Kirk had her song "Tonight" used on the show!

Olivia Rudeen and Jeff Zacharski—

"Hey guys, Olivia and I would like to thank you again for the opportunity to participate in the DSE. We have managed to get a placement on Jane By Design with our duet 'Better Off' set to air Tuesday night on ABC Family. Just wanted to let you guys know and say THANK YOU!!!" —Jeff Zacharski

Olivia and Jeff also won our recent WWAHM contest and got a co-write with hit songwriter Bridgette Tatum!

Lawrence Tenorio (a muulti-Expo ite from New Mexico) had his song "Supernova" used on Jane By Design as well.

Both Jeff and Olivia's song and Lawrence's song appear in the episode called "The Celebrity." Way to go!

CONGRATS KEN JOHNSON!

 
 
Our old pal Ken Johnson is in the music news again with his June 13th appearance on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno! Ken accompanied NFL legend Terry Bradshaw and his singer/songwriter daughter Rachel Bradshaw on a song he co-wrote. Way to go KJ!!!

FYI - HILLBILLY CULTURE CLUB CONFERENCE NEXT WEEK!

Our good friend Amanda Williams and her multi-million dollar selling dad Kim Williams will be hosting their next Hillbilly Culture Club Conference in Nashville. We highly recommend this conference! If you can't attend the whole 3-day event, consider a day pass and soak up some VITAL information about how to truly Do It Yourself - lots of nuts and bolts training that could otherwise take years and years of networking to learn. Amanda is a fantastic teacher!

"The format of this Conference is different from other music conferences in several ways: 1) Every moment of the Conference is organized to give you the best value for your money, 2) The focus is on Doing it Yourself - we give you step by step instructions, 3) The Conference covers the best and latest current practices for achieving commercial success...." —Amanda Williams
