Warrior Songs is a 501.c.3 non-profit that brings healing to veterans through songwriting and the creative arts.  Every other year our “Story to Song” program releases a compilation CD consisting of veterans stories turned into songs.   “Women at War: Warrior Songs Vol. 2” will feature 14 stories turned into songs, brought to reality by the most talented women musicians on the planet!   12 songs come from the stories of women who have worn the uniform, while two songs will focus on women who’ve lost loved ones in the combat zone.  

Warrior Songs only creates songs from first hand testimony.  Warrior Songs has been collecting testimony from women since 2011.  In 2017, we moved to the production phase.  We need your donations to make this CD a reality.  The CD will release November 2018.  1000 physical CD’s will be created which will then be distributed to veterans free of charge.  Civilians can purchase copies for $15.00 postage paid.  Digital copies will be available at iTunes, Spotify, and all major digital distributers. 

Please share our video often and across as many multiple social media platforms as you can.   We will post regular updates as the fundraiser progresses.   Below is our budget.  7 years of collecting testimony, over 20 women veteran contributors, over 30 women songwriters, artists, and vocalist coming together in the studio.  Will you help this CD become a reality?

Change the narrative, speak honestly about the issues facing women veterans, let those who’ve suffered similar traumas know they are not alone, and to honor those who’ve not only survived, but found a way to thrive and become beacons of hope for others to follow!
