Women in Music
March 30, 2017
In the words of Audre Lorde, “women are powerful and dangerous.” Where would we be without artists like Stevie Nicks, Alanis Morissette, Annie Lennox, Debbie Harry, and other female sound renegades? Probably in the pits.
“Man! I Feel Like a Woman” by Shania Twain, “I’m Every Woman” by Chaka Khan, “Sisters Are Doin’ It For Themselves” by Eurythmics… these are just a couple of the most iconic girl power staples and women behind them. As we near the end of Women’s History Month, we’re kicking the spotlight on three of our favorite #fempower jams and artists.
Originally a child-star, it didn’t take long for Lewis to branch off into the music scene– first as the lead singer for indie rock band Rilo Kiley, now as a solo artist with over three albums under her belt. “Just One Of The Guys” was penned by Lewis and released in her latest album, The Voyager. Fast forward to the 2:24 minute mark and you’ll find a teary-eyed Anne Hathaway shedding a tear for all the ladies without babies.
We’ve featured her before and we’ll do it again. Lorely Rodriguez’s artistic talent is rooted in her ability to fuse electronica, R&B, and alternative. Her song “Woman Is a Word” is the definition of staying woke and is sure to ensue a a one-of-a-kind trance. With lyrics like “I’m only an image of what you see” and “You don’t know me,” this song gives us all the #femfeels.
This French electronic pop solo artist is on our radar for good. Combining relaxing atmospheric sound with her love of theater, song, and dance, Héloïse Letissier is creating musical experiences like no other. Her song “Tilted” is currently on repeat.
