Project Description

We have a mission to motivate, spur on, encourage, and inspire.

So Am I- Worthy supports women singers/songwriters in the early stages of their career through coaching, community, empowerment events, and music.

We aim to create a virtual space and community so women singers/songwriters have a place to create, brainstorm, grow, and thrive as an artist.

For some odd reason, the arts have always been on the back burner. Usually, the last thing funded, usually deemed unimportant when in actuality life is mundane and silent without music.  Have you lived a life without music? Songwriters and Singers are the meat of the music and if they are not nurtured, motivated, and supported early on, they could quit and the beauty and creativity they have to bring would be stopped. WE DON'T WANT THAT!

Over and over, I hear "do you have a backup plan, nothing is promised or concrete. That sounds nice but it needs to be tangible". My passion and vision may not be tangible to naysayers but one day it will be. 

We aim to help women singers/songwriters know to never give up. Even when the support isn't there, even when no one believes in the lyrics, the beat, the song. It only takes one moment and one song to silence all that negativity.  You don't hear in almost every award speech "to all those people who didn't believe in me" for no reason. The lack of faith is true. We are here to be a support and believe in YOU!

WE ARE ASKING FOR YOUR SUPPORT IN OUR EFFORTS TO MOTIVATE WOMEN SINGERS/SONGWRITERS, ON THEIR JOURNEY!

  • Develop training courses virtually
  • Hire a team of skilled Singer/Songwriters, Musicians, Interns, and performance coaches to create, motivate, inspire, and share experiences.
  • Community Development- Mighty Networks
  • Songwriters Fund-Competitions & Grants
  • We would love to rent a woman-friendly space in NYC where creatives can come to brainstorm, relax, and be authentically themselves.

BE MUSICALLY AFFIRMED

Another way we want to encourage singer/songwriters is by using music to musically affirm. The journey of a musician can be lonely and daunting, we help singers to affirm themselves, keep going, believe in themselves, and have a support system. The good news is musical affirmations are not only for the singer if you want to be encouraged you can get a musical note for yourself as well! Check it out!

FOUNDER:

I am Valencia Callens, Founder of So AM I-Worthy and I am so happy that you are here! You are valuable and don't let anyone tell you otherwise. 

I love music. I create all the time. I am a singer/songwriter. I am a Masters of Music recipient. Trained classically, I grew up singing Gospel, Jazz, and dabble in things Pop and R&B. I am a motivator, leader, feminist, and friend. I created So Am I-Worthy to help creatives thrive. I want to be a support system for early-stage women singers/songwriters on their musical and creative journey. As a woman on the path to music, I experienced some hills and valleys. I know what it feels like to sleep on someone's couch, I know what it feels like to be rejected after endless hours of practice. I want to share what I know so that another woman's journey can avoid some of my pitfalls, she can be successful, confident, and worth and creativity is always in her path.

You are Worthy!!!

We all know verbal affirmations are great but what if you could be musically affirmed? Based on a survey you take.

Do you need encouragement- gift yourself a musical affirmation made just for you with your name in it.

Do you know someone who doesn't feel worthy?- send them a musical affirmation with their name in it telling them they are worthy.

Do you know someone doesn't feel beautiful- send them a musical affirmation with their name in it telling them they are beautiful.

Do you know someone who feels they can't do it or aren't capable- send them a musical affirmation with their name in it telling them they can do it.

and the list goes on. 

In addition, you are able to choose whether you want the song upbeat or slow. 

As we develop we want to also create you a musical affirmation in the genre that you prefer, we create with you in mind. You deserve it. You are worthy of it.

Songwriting Competition & Studio Fund

One way to encourage singers and songwriters is by gifting them the resources to perfect their craft. 

We aim to build competitions where we provide grants to singers and songwriters who are studio ready and just need those extra funds to get those vocals or songs off the ground

All proceeds of this rewards will go towards the songwriting competition and grants that will offer qualified singers/songwriters with 2-3 hours of studio time. 

Studio time is very expensive for instance recording starts at 55/hr and then mixing and mastering comes at a separate cost of about 60/hr. Most studios usually require 2-3 hour minimums. 

Support us as we support women singer/songwriters.

We will keep you updated on the winners and competition details.
