It's a Brand New Year!

Expo Deadlines and Tonight's Listening Room!



Happy New Year Everybody! Just a reminder that we are coming up on two important deadlines: the deadline to enter the "Write With A Hitmaker" Songwriting Contest on January 19th, and the Santa Barbara Expo (Feb 26-28) early registration deadline (which saves you $49 on the registration fee) on January 20th.

We've been getting a great response and great songs in the Songwriting Contest, and early registrations for Santa Barbara are coming in right and left...no one's lost their enthusiasm for songwriting in 2009! See you all soon! Jim Attebery

Next Expo Feb 26-28!

We are gearing up for our next Expo which will take place Feb 26-28, 2009 in Santa Ynez (Santa Barbara, CA). Click here to view and print out the Brochure/Registration PDF (or JPG).

If you cannot print out the brochure, contact us with your name and mailing address and we will send you the brochure via USPS.

If you've never been to our Santa Barbara Wine Country event, you should definitely try to come to this one! We've just secured the fantastic Jim Lauderdale as a headliner and we'll have the usual enormous contingent of top-notch industry movers and shakers...plus many surprises, as always!

Just click on the links above to see or print out the Registration Form. Or, call Jim Attebery at 970.259.9747 if you have any questions at all!

AND don't forget about our Write with a Hit-Maker Songwriting Contest which is well underway. The deadline to enter is January 19th (still time!), 2009. This contest has been an incredible boon to the careers of many of our recent winners...remember, the prize is getting to write with an established hit songwriter! This year the winner in the Country Category will write a song at the EXPO with hit songwriter Tim Johnson whose hits include "She Misses Him" for Tim Rushlow. The winner in the Pop/Rock Category will write a song with hit songwriter Tony Scalzo (of FastBall) and our own Alissa Moreno who won our contest in 2006 and co-wrote the Rascal Flatts 2008 hit "Every Day" with Jeffrey Steele.

Write with a Hit-Maker Songwriting Contest! Register online right now with our buddies at SonicBids!
