The Four-Part, Fully-Immersive Program Will Kick Off A Year Of Programming Spotlighting The Key Areas Pivotal To Success
#WomxnCrush Music (#WCM) has revealed plans for an unprecedented, fully-immersive, four-part virtual educational series to celebrate its Fourth Anniversary. The leading arts and music non-profit, which is dedicated to creating opportunities for rising womxn songwriters and musicians, will unveil its “Connect + Educate” events on March 2 and run bi-weekly through April 24.
This dynamic programming will spotlight #WCM’s year-long focus on four areas pivotal to success within the music business: “Getting Your Music Heard; Honing Your Craft; Building Your Biz; and Connecting To The Industry.” Partnering with industry visionaries like MDIIO, Bandzoogle, and many more which will be announced over the next few months, each #WCM virtual event will be led by executives, or a panel of experts, to provide personalized, real-life advice as well as tools and strategies artists can implement immediately in an intimate and laid-back forum.
“As we go into our fourth year as an organization, especially during a pandemic which has devastated our industry, we are dedicated more than ever to create impactful opportunities to help our rising womxn songwriters move forward,” said Ashley Kervabon-Stoyanov, CEO and founder of #WCM. “Community is everything and it is needed now more than ever. #WCM will never stop pursuing our mission of providing for our community with our virtual events as best as we can.”
The first seminar “Diversifying Your Revenue Streams As A Songwriter” will be held Tuesday, March 2 at 6:30 PM EST and will feature Bandzoogle CEO Stacey Bedford as well as Molly Beahen (Artist Manager at Middle West Management), Jessica Gramuglia (Music Supervisor at Conde Nast + Founder of Boutique Music Supervision Company Awkwardly Naked), and Jaden LaRule (Director of Licensing at 411 Music Group + Founder of Silver Lake Sessions).

#WCM was founded in 2017 by Kervabon-Stoyanov as a way to connect womxn in music and create more opportunities for them through a safe and supportive community. A songwriter herself, Kervabon-Stoyanov relied on her extensive industry experience working in various capacities in public relations, booking, ticket sales, and marketing to grow the #WCM movement into one of the largest non-profit arts organizations in the industry today, dedicated to creating opportunities for rising womxn songwriters and artists.
The organization is a 100 percent volunteer-run, fiscally-sponsored project of Independent Arts & Media and over the last four years has hosted over 400 showcases, educational workshops, and networking events across 16 North American cities and created a community of over 10K who want to see more rising womxn songwriters topping the charts, winning awards and headlining at their favorite festivals.
