Why I’m Doing This

With all the #WomensMarch’s going on in a bunch of different cities today, I wanted to take a moment and shine a spotlight on so many of the women in the music industry who probably and criminally overlook or underrated, either because of their gender, the fact that many of these artists are in independent groups, or both.

So I will be publishing a series of short posts today with simple lists: these artists’ names, their basic band role and/or instrument(s), the stage moniker, and where they come from. Each list will have twenty-five (25) entries apiece. Take a moment to appreciate these women; the music industry benefits in huge ways from their talent and involvement.

Music is about expression and inclusivity — let’s keep it that way.
