Talent Needed|

The view from the hotel at the DSE in Ventura, CA!

Dip your toes in an ocean of inspiration! “The song ‘Tough Times’ written by Scott Miller and me, both longtime DSE attendees, won first place and hit a home run in the NSAI ‘Hitsville’ contest, which got us a contract for that song with ‘ole.’ I then did some re-writing for them, and they did a nice new demo of the song, and are currently pitching it to major label artists in Nashville… We are so grateful to the DSE playing a huge role in this process as we brought it there for feedback and critiques and played it live etc. – several times! We got some really good feedback, and also made some more updates and polishing due to that feedback. We are looking forward to bringing more new songs also! We are both so thankful to be able to attend the DSE! You guys have such a cool event, we can’t thank you enough for providing these amazing opportunities, to meet new friends and co-writers, networking, pitching, performing, learning how to work, work, work, improve, improve, improve and polish, polish, polish, rinse and repeat!!!” — Lee Johnson (Winner of WWAHM)
