We crave meaning, emotion and heart in music.
It takes a genuine love of music to create for the individual listener and resist the temptation to “sell out” to a clamoring crowd. You have this true passion, however, you’re also a realist. You understand that it takes more than a few individuals to impact the music scene. You need the crowd. You need to be heard.
Please don’t cave.
Don’t stifle your talent, bow to pressures or become less you to be heard.
Stay true and we’ll send 100 women right to you!
The CWA Review Crew can get your music to potential fans fast, allowing you to bypass all the politics and expectations of the mainstream.
In our world today there are great musicians marching to the beat of their own drums, following their hearts, and embracing the unique melody the Master is stirring in them.
Is this you?
If so, we want to encourage you.

CWA reviewers are:
- Screened prior to acceptance. This insures that your reviewers are active. Our ladies have been chosen based on their presence online via their personal blogs, business or ministry sites, social media connections. They each have a following, a loyal group of people who trust them and value their opinion.
- Versed in the importance of SEO. The CWA Review Crew knows that you value this boost in marketing. Every review will feature the title of your recording or band name in the title of the review.
- Highly connected. The women at CWA are active on FB, Twitter, Linked In, Google+, and connect through blogs and everyday real life connections. They are influential women with a strong voice and the positive impact you need to spread the news about your book or product far and wide.
This is a very affordable way to get huge exposure for your music.
All I need are 3-5 songs. If you wish to, you can mail out CDs to your reviewers. As another option, you can save on shipping costs by providing mp3 files which can be sent to reviewers or building a private or public page online with free samples of your music. As long as reviewers have quality samples of full songs, we'll work with your needs.
Reviewers will write about their experience listening to your music and link to your sales page. They will post their reviews on as many social networks as they participate on including twitter, FB Google+ and Pinterest. You will also have a Public page at this site where your music, band and mission will be introduced to our audience.
It doesn't take long to listen to great music so you can expect a quick turn around and a lot of helpful buzz.
What if it isn’t their style? Well it can happen right? Everyone’s taste is different. I mean I hate catsup but some crazy people think it tastes great on eggs. What works for some people might not work for everyone. If your product isn’t a hit with a reviewer, you can still expect a review that shows respect for you as a creator.
CWA Reviewers will not ever slander you, degrade your talent or deface your message. If you’ve ever read a negative review before then you know what a gift that is. Here at CWA, you will find integrity in every review. When a product doesn’t work for them, they will consider why and try to identify a better audience for the product to their readers.
Submissions must not go against our Christian values. Music will be screened prior to acceptance for review just as all other forms of submissions are.
