J Morley's Story
by J Morley
"It was the first Durango event I went to...I got a really good response from my firt listening session. Steve Markland (Windswept Music) and Warren Sellers were critiquing. They liked my stuff and I was psyched up about it. I went down to the bar and Jeffrey Steele was down there and I asked him what he thought about Steve Markland liking my stuff (Markland is/was Jeffrey's publisher) and he said, 'Man if Steve likes your stuff, you're IN, that's a touchdown! You've made it son...' And I wrote that down on a bar napkin and on the way home (Boulder) in the middle of a blizzard I wrote a song called 'Touchdown' and I demo-ed it and I've gotten some great response from it."
