What Is A "Woman Of Substance"?
Substance can be defined as "significant quality with the implication of a hidden or special significance." Music of Substance is not just entertainment or fluff, but has an essental "core" brimming with heart, soul, and spirit.
Women of Substance are female performers who deliver high quality music that speaks to the listener through vocal excellence, depth of character and emotion, and lyrics that leave a lasting impression. This includes Label Artists, Indies and Unsigned artists alike.
Our review board selects only the highest quality artists and songs that can stand up next to the superstars. Indie artists we have chosen early in their career have gone on to be Top 24 on American Idol, to win second place on the Bravo show Platinum Hit, and to become a semi-finalist on NBC's The Voice.
