Canie Ritchson

How would you describe your music?

Comtemporary Christian. I desire to have an album with 100% of the words taken from the bible as an alternative to bible reading. I was not able to successfully do that in the CD that is getting ready to be published because of time constraint. This way, people who does not read the bible can hear bible though music. :-)

What is your role in your band? In the studio? In business or marketing decisions?

"I am songwriter, singer, and producer. I make final decisions."

Describe your gear.

My gear? Sorry, I am not sure what you are asking. :-)

Do you think being a woman and a musician is different from being a man and a musician? If so, how? Was there a moment that made a difference clear to you?

"In the world out there, a woman's body is used to add as a marketing tool for their CDs to be bought. But man does not have that extra advantage. :-)

With the society today however, it will be good to have women that will rise to be stars without exposing their body so that new generation of women are raised which will value morale and integrity. You'll be amaze of the positive influence it will bring; decrease in rapes, decrease in pregnancy, decrease in failed marriages, and many more. :-) "

Do you see differences between generations of women musicians?

Of course! I do not see a popular woman singer out there anymore that dresses with simplicity. It seems like women now have to go beyond their ability to sing to make it in the music world. :-)

Did anyone ever give you any valuable advice about making your way in the music industry? What advice would you give to a woman musician just starting out?

"Yes. A musician who worked with one a popular singer told me that I will need to expose my body to make it out there (not a valuable advice to me but am sure is valuable to others. :-).

For a woman musician coming in, I would say that, she has to be herself, focused, and determined, and give all her best in singing. One ""okay"" singer can make it compared to a ""good singer"" who never tried to try her best!"
