January 14th Pitch Session with Jim Attebery

SDSG begins our 31st year with a chance to meet and have your songs heard and critiqued by Jim Attebery, the co-founder and President of The Durango Songwriter’s Expo, one of the nation’s premier singer-songwriter events for 17 years. We are excited to bring the flavor of Durango to San Diego with our January 14 Pitch and look forward to seeing you at the
Country Inns and Suites in Sorrento Valley,
5975 Lusk Boulevard,
San Diego 92121
(858) 558-1818
Date: Monday, January 14, 2011
Registration Opens at 6:00 PM
Session Begins at 7:00 PM
Jim is a songwriter, producer, and studio owner who has worked with a variety of bands and artists and has written music for film and tv for many years. Says Jim, “We all need to be inspired to create. Few things are more inspiring than spending quality time with smart, talented, like-minded people who understand what you do… and are passionate about it, in fact.”
Jim will be joined on the dais by SDSG Vice President Diane Waters, the winner of many songwriting awards including Country Grand Prize Winner from the 2010 Durango Songwriters Expo. Jim and Diane will offer critiques on submissions, and Pitch attendees will, we’re sure, find the meeting enjoyable and informative.
In addition to offering his insights about your music, Jim will be selecting two songs from SDSG’s Pitch for free entry in Durango Songwriters Expo’s 2013 “Write With A Hit-Maker” Song Contest. Please mark your song pitches as either “Pop/Rock”, “Country” or “Film and TV” (Note: Film and TV category submissions should be broadcast quality).
The Expo is held twice a year, once in Santa Barbara Wine Country, (this year’s event is February 28 – March 2) and again in October in Boulder, Colorado. With over 40 music industry pros and hit songwriters present and registration limited to 200 attendees, the Expo is an unparalleled networking opportunity and one of the few songwriters’ events where participants get their music heard extensively by established industry vets.

    For this event there is no online submission. You will need to bring a CD with the songs you want to submit on the day of the pitch session.
