Join ASG as we welcome Nashville Music Publisher, Bobby Rymer back to Austin this weekend for one of his semi-annual Publisher Weekends, from Thursday-Saturday, March 27-29.

The Saturday workshop is open to all songwriters, while the Private Appointments are available to ASG members whose annual dues are current. As time slots are limited during Bobby’s visit, all appointments are on a first come-first served, limited availability basis. You can register for any of these events, as well as activating or renewing your membership by following the links at the bottom of this page.
Bobby Rymer, The Writer’s Den: Bobby Rymer is a hands on publisher with an incredible ear and vast knowledge of music from all genres. Bobby spent many years at Almo-Irving working under publishing superstar David Conrad, taking over the top position when Conrad retired. At this boutique agency he represented diverse catalogues from rockers Peter Frampton and Bruce Springsteen to Americana icon Patty Griffith and Country legend Kent Robbins.
After Universal absorbed Almo-Irving Bobby became director of the publishing arm of Writer’s Den Music Group. Their focus was previously unsigned writers and their roster of newcomers included Adam Wright who received a Grammy nomination for Alan Jackson’s “You Don’t Have To Love Me Any More.”
In 2012 Writer’s Den was restructured and Bobby is currently signing some of the previous Writer’s Den staffers plus a veteran writer or two as well as working with songwriters from out-of-town. The Writer’s Den integrates in all facets of the music business and encourages creativity in a fun, relaxed atmosphere while inspiring long lasting relationships. The philosophy of Writer’s Den Music Group stands clear; A commitment to focusing on every single song, creating a unique hands-on style experience for both the writers and publisher. Over the past two years, Writer’s Den Music Group has earned prominence with cuts featured in movies and hit TV shows.
Bobby has been an ASG supporter for the past five years, making 2-3 trips to Austin each year, including the annual Symposium, to hear ASG songwriter’s songs. Over the years, many ASG members have developed relationships with Bobby that afford them a professional publishing contact to pitch their songs to, while giving Bobby access to potential hit songs outside the traditional Music Row channels. It could be you and your music that gets Bobby excited, but you have to be present to win.
That opportunity to be present occurs Thursday, Friday & Saturday, March 27-29 at the ASG offices. Bobby will be facilitating a publisher’s workshop on Saturday from 11:30 AM -1:30 PM. The cost of the workshop is only $25 (open to ALL songwriters whether a current ASG Member or not).
Bobby will be seeing ASG songwriters in private appointments late Thursday, all day Friday, and also before and after the Saturday workshop. The private appointments are scheduled in time units of 30 minutes each at a cost of $50 per unit. You may schedule a second 30 minute appointment, also at a cost of $50. (Limit two (2) :30 minute appointments per member)
