Greetings Surfer:  My name is Michael Foster and I am the editor and the webmaster of Cutting Edge Voices and if there is any credit due for the site or any blame to be had for what's wrong with it I guess I'm the one you should be e-mailing. I'm glad that you found your way here and I would like to tell you a little bit about why I decided to venture forth with a new website about women in music.

Cutting Edge Voices was born out of my love for music that dates back to the mid sixties and the desire to share some of the information that I was running across in my searches around the web and my previous stint in the music business. I have been listening to some great music since I worked in the retail end of the music business back in my early 20ís-30ís and somewhere along the line it occurred to me that not everyone gets the opportunity to be exposed to the great music that I have over the years so why not share my love of music that I acquired over the years with as many folks as possible. These days of course that means creating a website.

My mission with Cutting Edge Voices is to offer a place where those interested in indie, pop, alternative, rock or  contemporary vocal music might come to and learn about the latest news, read an interview with those who make the music, read reviews of the latest and some classic music of the genre and to find links to destinations all over the web. I wanted CEV to become a resource for the community and to offer links to the many other resources a musician or listener might need. As time goes on I hope to make CEV one of those names that you remember because you found the information that you were looking for when you visited the site.

I am always looking for input from my readers, the labels (both small and large), and the artists themselves in the development of Cutting Edge Voices in the years to come. I think that the only way to make a prosperous and useful website is to make it in conjunction with those you are attempting to reach with your information. Participation in the form of articles about anything pertaining to the genres mentioned above or anything to do with the industry that creates and distributes female vocalist music to the listeners is welcome as well. I am always looking for those who like to be involved as reviewers also. It seems that you can never have enough differing viewpoints when it comes to reviews. The more the merrier.

I encourage everyone involved with vocal music from the readers of this e-zine, those who run the labels, the artists, the publicists or even those who sponsor events around the country to submit their press releases or event announcements to the e-mail address above for publication on our news page. Let everyone know what's going on by letting me know what's going on. I'll see to it that it gets posted in a timely manner to the website. And if you have a website please use the banner below to link back to us and let your visitors know about us. When you have linked us up please drop me an e-mail and I will get you listed on the appropriate spot on Cutting Edge Voices.

I hope that you enjoy your stay here at the website and that you will come back again real soon. I am always updating the information on the website so come back often to get the latest news and information about the music that you love. Thanks for your support and I'll see you again soon.
