The Expo's Latest Success Story!"The Durango Songwriters Expo has been an invaluable part of my life and career. Since I started attending in 2010, the connections I’ve made at Durango have led to TV placements, live performance opportunities, and amazing collaborations. I recently signed with a Nashville publisher who I met as a result of the live showcase portion of the 2013 Santa Barbara Expo, which is something that I’ll always be grateful to DSE for. And, some of my best friends in the world are people I’ve met at Durango. I feel so lucky to be a part of this incredible community." —Olivia Rudeen
