“Songwriters are the lifeblood of the music industry.”

​​​​​​​​​​​​Debbie ​​Zavitson​​ is ​​a​ respected​ veteran ​​in ​​the ​​music ​​industry.​​ With ​​the​​ experience ​​she​​ brings​ ​from performing​ ​with​ ​her​ ​own​ ​band​ ​internationally,​ ​to​ ​an​ ​A&R executive ​at​ ​Sony​ Music,​ and​ then G​iant Records. She​ ​has​ ​now​ ​created​ ​her​ ​own​ ​publishing​ ​and​ ​management​ ​company​ ​DEBBIE ​Z ENTERTAINMENT.​ ​​As​ ​of​ ​2018,​ ​in​ ​addition​ ​to​ ​her​ ​songwriter Helene Cronin,​ ​Debbie​ ​is​ ​representing​ Doug​ ​Johnson (Three Wooden Crosses, Love Like Crazy) and ​Canadian​ ​artist Hayley​ ​McLean​ ​(Fender Guitar’s “Guitar Goddess”) and alternative/ pop producer, artist and songwriter.

Debbie has also recently launched a new company with well known Canadian entrepreneur and independent music artist Tara Shannon. Debbie and Tara have started The Syndicut. A development group for creators looking to build their career and establish themselves in the music business, while connecting talent between Canada and Nashville. ​​​​​​​​​​​Debbie ​​has ​​always ​​been​​ one​​ to ​​strive ​​for ​​excellence ​​in​​the ​​pursuit ​​of​​ talent, and ​​was integral in ​signing​ ​multi-platinum​ ​recording​ ​artist​ ​Blake​ ​Shelton to Giant Records.
