About #WomenCrush

#WomenCrush

#WomenCrush Music presents their first showcase of the 2018 season at The White Eagle with members of the Portland #WomenCrush Music team and noteable women artists from the Portland music scene. From pop, rock to folk, these local songwriters are the perfect introduction to the talent and community #WomenCrush Music has to offer.

About #WomenCrush Music:
#WomenCrush Music is a non-profit organization that serves to create opportunities for rising women songwriters by hosting international showcases, educational workshops & networking events. Whether they are just in 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.

It was founded in January 2017, when Ashley Kervabon saw a need to build a stronger community amongst women in the music industry in Portland, OR. When the first showcase was a success, Ashley reached out to women in her online music communities to see if any other cities had ongoing showcase series for women artists. It was then that she realized there was a void that needed to be filled and she started her expansion by bringing the showcase series to her hometown of NYC. By fall of 2017 #WomenCrush had grown dramatically, including several new team members and many more new cities to launch in 2018, such as, Los Angeles, Chicago, Austin, New Orleans, Nashville, San Francisco, San Jose, Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Missoula! Follow them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to stay posted on their events at @womencrushmusic.

About the host:
The Portland branch is often hosted by founder of #WomenCrush, Ashley Kervabon. Ashley started her music career in NYC where she was born & bred, but it wasn't until moving to Portland in 2015 that she realized what her real mission was: writing songs for other artists & helping them advance in their career. She is now pursuing this by leading the organization she created, #WomenCrush Music.

When she's not trying to be the next Sia or out networking somewhere, she's embracing her inner foodie, playing with her chiweenie puppy Henry or making travel plans with her hubby-to be. You can follow her on Twitter and Instagram @ashleykervabon.

 

 

About Marjorie Nelch

Marjorie Nelch

Marjorie is really tall woman with a constant bright smile. She loves to ask, “What’s your story?” and talk about life, the ups and downs, maybe even get somewhere deeply personal pretty quick. That’s her in a nutshell: braving to ask questions about what matters- to know and to be known. She uses music as tool to express feelings that are real but not necessarily accessible. As a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter she marries her passion for people and music in her debut self titled EP.

About Sarah Vitort

Sarah Vitort

Sarah is a self-proclaimed free spirit with a musical mission. After quitting her job in 2013 to travel the world, she began writing music with the goal of expressing her truth and inspiring others to find the courage to live the life they've always dreamed of. During her journey, she experienced a major transformation, and made the decision upon her return to fully pursue a career in music. Much of her musical inspiration is drawn from her experiences traveling and going against the status quo and the expectations society unnecessarily puts on us. Armed with soulful vocals, catchy lyrics and a country rock vibe, she captivates listeners by speaking from the heart and connecting with the imaginative, emotional, playful side of humanity. Her aim is to inspire and uplift; to merge popular music and spirituality in a way that has seldom been done.
