#WomenCrush Music is a non-profit organization that was founded in 2017 with the sole purpose of helping women singer/songwriters on the rise achieve their goals. Whether they are just at the beginning of their careers and want to start performing at local venues, or they’ve just released their second album and are ready to go on tour. #WomenCrush Music wants to connect artists with future collaborators, educate them about the business, and inspire them to make an impact on this male-dominated industry.
Founder, Ashley Kervabon saw that there was such a strong need for a greater sense of community amongst women in the music industry while she was living in Portland, OR and things have truly grown exponentially since then; expanding to 13 cities across the United States and Canada!
#WomenCrush started with a local showcase, and the showcase remains a cornerstone of the organization even as it expands in size and gains momentum. Each of #WomenCrush Music’s city chapters will hold a showcase 6 times a year, with the exception of Portland, which will spotlight women songwriters on a monthly basis. Addressing the need for a safe space to perform new material and to connect with potential collaborators and mentors is more than just how #WomenCrush Music began. Encouraging women to find their voice and be inspired by other women is its core endeavor and its guiding vision!
