Wedderburn Records is starting an inclusive series reserved for female and non-binary solo artists.  Wedderburn Records label owner Janel Leppin saw a need to create a space for female and non-binary artists and wishes to raise money for this endeavor. 

   For years I have wanted to release female artists work.  I've dreamt of having my own label to do this and finally this wish has come true.  After having a negative experience in the music business I walked away from a record deal in 2015.  I felt there was an unfair amount of sexism I was dealing with in the dealings and I really feel like no one should have to cope with that in the twenty-first century.  After a lot of soul searching I decided to do it myself and make a space for my own work without having strings attached.  After releasing two solo albums and a third solo work American God, which comes out on April 28th, I am now ready to announce this series.  It will focus on female and non-binary artists who's work I love and who I believe are creating something of true value for the world.

  I am raising money for this exciting series in order to create quality vinyl recordings as well as provide partial funding for recording costs.  These costs can be prohibitive for artists.  My goal is to enable artists to work with high-level recording, mixing and mastering engineers who can help create next level records.  It's up to us to support the arts in any way that we can and I thank you for your help!

  The first artist of the series will be announced in April 2017 for a release in Winter 2017.   I am searching for funding now to support this project.  Thank you very much!
