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!

This is an advance notice to those of you already inquiring about how to register for Santa Ynez. 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, for those of you who register early, before December 25th, we've got a special bonus:

"We know every dollar is more precious than ever so as an added incentive for you to come and become part of The Durango Songwriters Expo, if you are able to register early, we will give you an extra, a fourth, listening session...another set of industry pros to play your music for..." —Jim A.

Don't forget about our Write with a Hit-Maker Songwriting Contest which is well underway. The deadline to enter is January 19th, 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.
