About Debbie Zavitson

She has now created her own publishing and management company Debbie Z Entertainment.  As of 2017, in addition to her songwriters, Debbie is representing Curb Publishing, Doug Johnson, Canadian artists Tara Shannon and Hayley McLean (Texada).

An award winning Broadway star from musicals like Wicked, The Addams Family and Evita opposite Ricky Martin.

Debbie has always been one to strive for excellence in the pursuit of talent, and is responsible for signing multi-platinum recording artist Blake Shelton, as well as managing the integral first years of his career. She also discovered record breaking duo The Kinleys, who had the highest charting debut single by a duo or group in R&R history with their song “Please”.  In the publishing realm, Debbie has worked with an array of hit songwriters, and has secured song placements on major recording artists such as Reba McEntire, Rodney Atkins, Chris Young, Brooks & Dunn, to name a few. Through her relationship with the West Coast Songwriter Conference, she met Los Angeles-based award winning songwriter Jay Lazaroff, who she began managing and connecting to the Nashville music scene.
 She also acts as the vice president of publishing in the Nashville Division of Canadian music company Willow Sound Records, where she connects Canadian songwriters with the Nashville music community.

In Debbie’s own words, “Songwriters are the lifeblood of the music industry. They’re precious in a world that needs so much love and connection right now. A song is one of the only things that can connect people from all walks of life. We need to take care of our songwriters. In a world of sharing music, and not being paid a fair price for their work, they could become a dying breed.”  That’s what Debbie tries to do every day.



About the Publisher Online Pitch Event

Have you ever thought: “Wow I think I have a really good song. If only I could get a legitimate publisher to listen?”

Through GSC’s affordable Publisher Online Pitch service you can have your song or songs heard by a reputable publisher from wherever in the world you live and without the expensive cost of travel.

One of the most important elements of this service is that you will be connecting with a publisher, creating a relationship with this publisher and learning the pitching process professional songwriters utilize every day.

Here are the details!

  • This online music event is open to members of Global Songwriters Connection
  • Members can take advantage of the “Listen Only” option for only $20 before pitching a song.
  • This event is limited to 30 song pitches.
  • Once you purchase the POP event you will receive a confirmation that will contain your step by step instructions for logging into the webcast.
  • If you purchase a song pitch, you will need to email your song in mp3 format along with your photo (jpg format only) and lyric (Microsoft Word format only) to [email protected] by 11am the day before the event. (Please list your name and where you are from on the top of your lyric. GSC wants the publisher to connect with you.)
  • Guitar vocals and keyboard vocals are acceptable. You do not have to have a full song demo for this event.
  • The publisher will only listen to the first verse and the chorus of your song.
  • The publisher may or may not comment on your song. This event is not intended as a publisher evaluation service; although in most cases, the publisher will offer constructive advice.
  • This is a real music publisher online pitch opportunity. The publisher will either PASS on your song OR he may choose to keep your song for further consideration.
  • You are encouraged to stay involved in the webinar while all songs are listened to and here is why:
    • Out of respect for the other participants.
    • Should the music publisher choose to comment on a song, you will learn from what he has to say.
    • If a publisher takes a song, you will want to connect with that songwriter and possibly co-write with that writer.
