The premiere edition features Gayelynn McKinney, our 340th member and the last drummer to perform with the Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin! The inside stories are based upon our members’ experiences with the six keys to success for all musicians and entrepreneurs: branding, marketing, networking, teamwork, negotiation, and accounting.
We plan to grow this publication through subscriptions from our members and the general public. We trust you will enjoy the attention paid to women musicians who have dedicated their lives to producing music to live your life by!
The 4th Catalog of Women in Arts & Business published on March 7, 2018. We printed 3,000 catalogs and sent copies to advertisers and members for distribution. Ten years ago, our marketing team from Women in Jazz South Florida, Inc. sat at my dining table to discuss the creation of Musicwoman Magazine©®™. We focused on funding this project and the bottom line was a strong advertisement base. Musicwoman Magazine©®™ is an idea whose time has come! Women musicians are upward bound and need vehicles like this for promotion.
The upside of this venture is the printing grant we competed for and won for five consecutive years from Conquest Graphics in Philadelphia, PA. The grants we won ranged from $750 to $5,000, which enabled us to print our catalog for four years and got us to where we could publish a full-sized magazine, highlighting the work of women musicians, globally!

Ten years ago, our marketing team from Women in Jazz South Florida, Inc. sat at my dining table to discuss the creation of Musicwoman Magazine©®™. We focused on funding this project and the bottom line was a strong advertisement base. In 2013, I participated in the WIMUST Conference with 40 women composers in Fiuggi Italy. Then, we published the first online edition. It was a beautiful magazine, but our President Lorna Lesperance insisted that we increase advertisement, before publishing, again. Access the online edition of the magazine at: https://issuu.com/joancartwright/docs/mwmag_august2013
Now, in 2019, after publishing the Catalog of Women in Arts & Business in 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2018, we have our advertisement base, enough print the first hard copy edition of Musicwoman Magazine©®™.

I have two wonderful children. My son just turned 50 this month. He sings well but only in the shower. When he was an infant until he was two, we listened to THE SOUND OF MUSIC every morning! He just loved it.
My daughter is 48 and has followed in my footsteps. She is a vocalist, songwriter, producer, actress, playwright, and WEB TV host.
Neither one of my children are introverts. They are really comedians and bring a lot of joy to those around them. When they were teenagers, I practiced piano and composed most of my songs, while they tended to my mother, who was incapacitated. They would be upstairs and I’d be in the living room, downstairs. You couldn’t hear a pin drop, most of the time. I think they enjoyed my playing. There was a lot of peace in our home.
Music, the sound of the spheres, begins in the womb!!!
