Since 1996, the Durango Songwriter's Expo has provided a perfect blend of music business seminars and workshops, song listening/critique sessions, live songwriter showcases, and a live hit writer concert to close the event. With registration limited to 200 attendees, the Expo is truly an intimate event that offers unparalleled networking opportunities.
Registrations are accepted on a first come, first served basis.
This year's special guests include songwriters Jeffrey Steele, Al Anderson, Marcus Hummon, Hillary Lindsey, and Lori McKenna, as well as industry pros including Interscope/A&M's Tony Ferguson, Chrysalis' Sara Kapuchinski, Columbia's Beka Callaway and Marshall Altman, Aware's Steve Smith, Sony's Clay Bradley, BMG's Michelle Berlin, Harlan Howard Songs' Melanie Howard, Maverick's Kevin Williamson, and a bevy of other producers, managers, and writers.
In just the last few months, Expo attendees Ken Johnson, Warren Sellers, Richard Harris and Julianne Hansen have been signed to deals as a direct result of their Expo experience. In addition, two #1 songs have been written at this event by participating hit songwriters.
