Looking for women involved in the rock scene
Posted August 22nd, 2013 - 8:59 pm by from Beijing, China (Permalink)
Hello! I'm applying for a fellowship and am proposing to travel around to different cities with strong local rock scenes to look at the role that female musicians play in the scene and how females have carved out a place for themselves in the music community. Does anyone know or know of female musicians, bands, or any women involved in the local rock scene? Even names of bands or links to websites where local shows are listed would be a huge help! Thanks CS!!!!

Hi there, I think I can give you a hand with what you are looking for. Even as the local rock scene could be considered to be predominantly male in nature, you can find that women always had some kind of involvment. And nowadays, you can find solists and front-women in some cases.

I do have some female friends or acquaintances who are musicians (with recorded stuff), some of them have root in rock music, and other styles too. I will see what I can do, others I can point out to, and in some cases some people just connect to each other.

Anyway, it is a really interesting topic, if you ask your questions right. I will be happy to lend a hand.

Hi Sebastian!

Thanks so much for your help!

I'm actually interested in the topic because most rock scenes are male dominated, and I want to look at how female musicians operate and thrive within that environment. I've played drums with various bands in the States, so the topic is close to my heart.

Could you give me the names of any bands that I should take a look at? Also, I saw on your profile that you write for rock music magazines in BA, that's awesome! What magazine do you write for?
