SDSG opens our 30th 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, for 16 years, one of America’s premier singer-songwriter events.
Not only will we be starting the year off with a hot pitch session, but also a great opportunity to meet the 2012 President of the San Diego Songwriters Guild, Tim Mudd! We are looking forward to offering many opportunities our members in the upcoming year, so please join us as we connect with one another and welcome our new President.
The Expo is held twice a year, once in Santa Barbara Wine Country, (this year’s event is March 1-4) 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.

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. He will be joined on the dais by SDSG’s Diane Waters, and offer critiques on submissions. Pitch attendees will, we’re sure, ﬁnd the meeting enjoyable and informative. Additionally, Jim will be giving away a couple of free entry’s to the Durango “Write With a Hit Songwriter Contest” at the end of the pitch session.
We are excited to bring the ﬂavor of Durango to San Diego on January 16 Pitch and look forward to seeing you at the Country Inns and Suites, 5975 Lusk Boulevard, San Diego
