Launched in 2006, the ASCAP "I Create Music" EXPO is the first and only national conference dedicated to songwriting and composing. Selling out in its inaugural year, the EXPO immediately provided a unique opportunity for songwriters, composers, publishers, producers - and those in the industry that support them - to come together in an unprecedented way to share their knowledge and expertise. In its short history, the innovative programming offered to attendees has grown to include celebrity Q&A's, master classes, songwriting and composing workshops, publisher and business panels, One-on-One sessions, DIY career building workshops, showcases and performances, song feedback panels, state-of-the-art technology demos as well as leading music industry exhibitors. Some of the biggest names in music, both on the creative and business side, have participated at ASCAP's EXPOs. The EXPO's headliner interviews have been with Lindsey Buckingham interviewed by Sara Bareilles, Quincy Jones interviewed by Ludacris, Justin Timberlake & Bill Withers, John Mayer, Ann & Nancy Wilson (Heart), Jeff Lynne, Jon Bon Jovi & Richie Sambora, Jackson Browne, Steve Miller, Randy Newman and Tom Petty. At each EXPO there are over 200 panelists and performers, including such people as: Antonina Armato Clarence Avant Johnta Austin Klaus Badelt Glen Ballard Martin Bandier Sara Bareilles Natasha Bedingfield Richard Bellis Marco Beltrami Alan & Marilyn Bergman Dan Bern Boi-1da Jon Bon Jovi Claudia Brant Stephen Bray Jonatha Brooke Kerry "Krucial" Brothers Bruce Broughton Darrell Brown Jackson Browne Chris Brubeck Bun B Lindsey Buckingham Kenny Burrell Kandi Burruss Mary Chapin Carpenter Regina Carter Chamillionaire Paul Chihara Jay L.

The latest CD from this exceptional and soulful Hammond organist is the proof. "Late Rent" draws on decades of great recording sessions and top live performances to showcase his own playing and many top jazz and funk artists.
