Who is this for?

This is for female musicians, singers, songwriters, producers, rappers and spoken word artistes.  If you are:
  • Returning to your music after a break and want to boost your confidence.
  • Music is your hobby, you would like to perform and eventually get paid.
  • Your music is part-time and you want to understand the music industry with a view to becoming full time. 

Can men join?

Statically there are not many women in the music industry and Cafemnee was set up to help redress the balance so unfortunately this is for women only at the current moment.

How long will this Group run for?

This Community Group will run from April 2020 for 3 months, initially. 
But who knows? Perhaps it will run much longer than that. This group will be regularly reviewed. Watch this space!
