Hey Everybody! Well WWAHM 2011-2 (Broomfield/Boulder) is in the books.

We want to WELCOME NEWCOMERS who may not have been to the EXPO but found out about the WWAHM contest online and entered. PLEASE COME TO THE EXPO!

And of course the three WINNERS will meet their respective new co-creators AT THE EXPO!

We are now checking the files and beginning the official listening process.

PUBLIC VOTING remains open until Wednesday night at Midnight CT. After that day we will move the top-ten vote-getters over into the Finalist folder, along with the songs that have been selected by our music industry panel. You can be sure that every very good song is going to get several different critical listens.

At the end of this week the writers/publishers/music supervisors will narrow it down to ONE winner in each category...and THREE runners-up in each category as well. (Runners-up win 1/2 price registration to this or any future Expo - a $150 value)!

IF YOU ARE AN ENTRANT IN WWAHM 2011-2 PLEASE CHECK THE VOTING SITE to see that your files are in the correct genres. Contact if anything has gone awry.


"Your conference is impossible to beat! It's the best one around. I wish I could be there. I want to thank you again for the opportunity to write with Glen Phillips. We finished the song and are in the middle of passing it back and forth to record it. I'm thrilled with it and so happy to have had the opportunity to sit in a room with him. He's great...And you are great for making it happen!!"óbeth

DSE Note: Beth Thornley won the Pop category in the 2011-1 WWAHM contest and a co-write with our great friend and super talent Glen Phillips from Toad The Wet Sprocket fame!

YES! Glen Phillips will be appearing at the October 6-10 Expo!

"If I could only say one thing to describe the Durango Expo experience, it would be this. After being a professional writer for almost 20 years, it unfortunately gets harder and harder to be impressed by music in general. But at each Durango event Iíve attended, I had specific moments of listening to Artist showcases & Pro/Legends Writers rounds that gave me this old familiar feeling in my chest and reminded me of why I wanted to be a songwriter in the very beginning. That inspiration, for me, is worth everything." --Trina Harmon, Hit Songwriter and The Artist Coach
