SDSG begins our 32nd year with a chance to meet with and have your songs heard and critiqued by Jim Attebery, the co-founder and President of The Durango Songwriter’s Expo, a premier national singer-songwriter event since it was founded in 1996. The meeting will be held at one of San Diego’s finest recording facilities, Studio West, thanks to the studio’s support for SDSG. This a joint SDSG – NSAI Session at Studio West event!

The Durango Expo occurs twice a year, once in Santa Ynez Wine Country, (this year’s west coast event is February 27 – March 1) 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 offers an unparalleled networking opportunity. The Expo is one of the few songwriters’ events where participants get their music heard extensively by established industry vets. Jim is a very well-connected 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. He will be joined during the session by SDSG Acting President Diane Waters, the winner of many songwriting awards including Country Grand Prize Winner from the 2010 Durango Songwriters Expo and, with co-writer Mark Charles Hattersley, runner-up in the Pop category in 2013.

Jim and Diane will offer critiques on submissions, and attendees will, we’re sure, find the meeting informative and enjoyable.

In addition to offering his insights about your music, Jim will be selecting two songs for free entry in Durango Songwriters Expo’s 2014 West Coast “Write With A Hit-Maker” Song Contest. Please mark your song pitches as either “Pop/Rock”, “Country” or “Film and TV.” Film and TV category submissions should be broadcast quality.
