My big opportunity!



So last weekend while we were in Utah, I had an amazing opportunity. I went to a LDS music workshop. Most of you know that I had written country songs and had the opportunity to sing back in the day and passed it up to go on a mission. Well since I have been home I have written quite a few church songs and now want to really get into that. So I went to this workshop that was put on by Jenny Phillips and Tyler Castleton (both very prominent in LDS music industry) and tons of other prominent people such as Hilary Weeks, Peter Breinholt, Mercy River, Staci Peters, and more. Anywho, while I was there I got to talk to Bob Ahlander who is the head of Deseret Book Music. He is the head of there label and manager for some artists. I was able to give him a demo CD and in the process he gave me a way to get a hold of him directly and said to follow up with him in a month. Also at this workshop they talked about having an e-mail fan club and that labels look to see how many people you have when they are looking to sign you. So I guess I need everyone's help to sign up for my new little fan club. Hopefully I will have a website realatively soon, but for now please just send a response to stephaniehillman@gmail.com. Once you join I will send you a free song and you will get monthly updates on what is going on. Also if you are interested in booking a fireside with me also just send a request to that address. Thanks for everyone's help and tell all your friends!

Steph, that's so awesome! What a great opportunity for you! This just shows how Heavenly Father blesses you even if you did give up a music opportunity to go on a mission. :)
