Music industry vet Debbie Zavitson has opened Debbie Z Entertainment, a full service publishing, management, artist development and independent song plugging company.
Her first signings are award-winning songwriter Vip Vipperman (Reba, Trace Adkins), Phillip Lammonds (Josh Turner, Blake Shelton, Hootie & the Blowfish), Curb Music Publishing, Jay Lazaroff (written music for over 100 film and TV shows including Survivor and The Apprentice), award-winning Canadian singer/songwriter Jess Moskaluke and emerging group Rocket Club.
“I couldn’t be more excited about this new company,” says Zavitson. “Pitching songs today is more of a challenge than ever, but the writers I’m working with bring such a passion and professionalism to it that it couldn’t be more rewarding.”
She began her career in the entertainment business as a singer performing throughout the country. She moved to Music City and landed a job with then independent producer Doug Johnson running his publishing company. Zavitson has discovered No. 1 hits including ACM Song of the Year “I Love the Way You Love Me,” and Blake Shelton’s “Austin.” She has worked in A&R at Sony and Giant Records, and in artist management with Shelton as her first artist.
