Angelic Music was launched in January 2006 by Janis Haves, an artist with a mission to foster the talents of female singer/songwriters in the music industry. The label records, publishes and promotes the hottest female musical talents on the scene, with one distinction: the label seeks to break the mold of the archetypal 'pop princess'. We are motivated by great music and talent, not age or waist size. In addition, through the "Angels Out There" network, we provide a thriving, free networking community allowing female artists to meet each other and share advice on a variety of subjects ranging from getting gigs and promoting shows, to recording, touring, and technical advice.

We are currently seeking original, talented female singer/songwriters to compete in a new song contest called 'In Her Own Words'. The first prize is a free national press and
radio promotional package and a performance at the Angelic Music launch party to be held in London later this year.

Janis Haves says, "I'm looking for an artist with the right song and a great voice to spearhead the project. The competition is open to all artists in the singer/songwriter, folk, pop, and like genres and the winning artist and song will be given the lead track on a compilation CD of female singer/songwriters
from around the world." That artist will also be promoted through national press and radio and will be invited to perform at the Angelic Music launch party in London later this year.

Aside from the winners of the competition, the compilation CD will feature a host of highly respected singer/songwriters including Katie Melua and Janis Ian, both of whom have given tons of support to this project. The CD is scheduled for a Christmas release.

The competition is supported by Songlink International (a "who's looking" information network for songwriters and music publishers) and the BPI in London. The following industry professionals will be judging the competition: Kim Appleby (Chairwoman, Contemporary Music – Ivor Novello Awards) Songlink International editor/publisher David Stark, Pam Sheyne (Genie in a Bottle - Christina Aguilera) and Megg Nichol from the British Academy Board.

There are more women performing and recording independently today than ever before, yet most music marketing is still focused on the male market. Angelic Music is here to help these women reach each other, and grow as both musicians and artists.

Besides everything listed above, the 1st Place Winner will receive the following:

  • A brand new Blueridge guitar - Blueridge BR-163 000 - Value: £500.00
  • One free membership of Songlink International
  • A free suite of songwriting software from 'Masterwriter'
  • A single song recording and publishing contract

One runner-up will also receive:

  • Their song professionally recorded, produced and added to the compilation release
  • A single song recording and publishing deal
  • A free suite of songwriting software from 'Masterwriter'
  • A free membership to Songlink International
