#WomenCrush Denver launches Sunday
If you’re looking to take in some excellent music this weekend while supporting the new Denver chapter of #WomenCrush Music, head over to the Mercury Cafe Sunday, October 14. Local artists Sassfactory, Sister Neapolitan, and Mirrors and Lights headline. The event is free, and takes place from 4 – 6 pm.
It’s all part of #WomenCrush Music’s mission to raise the profile for female musicians in the area. Formed in 2017, in Portland, Oregon, #WomenCrush seeks to connect, educate, and inspire rising women songwriters by building a supportive music community, including workshops, and shows like the ones on Sunday. Denver’s Chapter Leader, Britt Margit, brings her experience as a Colorado musician to the initiative.
“I always wished I had known more about the music business before I got in too deep,” she said in a release. “When I came across #WomenCrush, I knew I found the right platform to better foster the community of female songwriters in Denver and Boulder.”
The launch of the Denver/Boulder Chapter also marks an expansion for #WCM nationwide. Founder Ashley Kevabon said that when Britt approached her about a Denver chapter that she was “over the moon.” “There is more and more talent popping up and the enthusiasm we’ve already received from the media & industry members in Denver has been amazing,” added Kevabon.
#WomenCrush Music began in January, 2017, with its mission to address a need for a stronger community of women songwriters in Portland. By January, 2018, #WomenCrush had expanded to 13 cities.
