If a picture is worth a thousand words, imagine the power of a song that sticks in people's hearts and minds forever.
Remember the themes from Friends, Cheers, and The Flintstones?
So does everyone else.
They're unforgettable -- and you can be, too. Having your own original theme song is not only possible, it's affordable!
Just ask the town of Osoyoos, BC about their new theme song, "Canada's Warmest Welcome."
To give their branding investment maximum impact -- and get their message out to the world in a way that sticks -- they called in professional songwriter Lowry Olafson to help them to create a theme song that the whole town could call its own.

The Burnaby Public Library wanted to increase public awareness of their home library service... so they too enlisted Lowry Olafson to conduct one of his ThemeShop group songwriting sessions.
And the song they wrote in three hours, "There's a Story at My Door," communicated their message in an unforgettable way.
But it did so much more than that...
It brought their staff, volunteers, and clients together to share an experience that deepened their understanding and dedication to the organization's goals in a way that will stay with them forever.
Watch the video below to see how they did it:

"Fantastic, love it!! Hope everyone here in Lillooet learns it. Lillooet is such a beautiful place....and now it has it's very own song!!!
Anyone hearing this song from outside of Lillooet will be coming to see it I'm sure and they will not be disappointed at its beauty, it's majestic mountains, sky blue lakes and of course the mighty Fraser River ... great job.
It just could become a hit!"

I was thrilled to be able to get up on stage with all of those who contributed and sing our new song for the first time.
But it doesn’t end there. The ‘Heart of it All’ will be used to promote Vanderhoof for many years to come.”
