Turn Her Up

We’re super excited about this new project from our friends at independent record label, Frtyfve. They’ve been working on a new compilation album which is set to release on March 8th – International Women’s Day!  The album features twenty-nine of the fastest rising stars from seven countries, including Pixie Lott, Emma Heesters and Mariana Nolasco, who deliver a rendition of tracks originally performed and/or written by iconic female musicians.

Turn Her Up addresses the astonishing gender imbalance in music, whilst celebrating the vital role that female artists have played. The campaign highlights how women are vastly underrepresented in almost all facets of the industry: just 30% of senior music executives, 17% of PRS registered songwriters, and a mere 5% of UK sound-engineers, are female. Overall, the gender split is roughly 30% to 70%. These statistics are often overlooked due to the visibility of a handful of mega-stars. However, the harsh reality of such success is that it is often dictated, orchestrated and packaged by misogyny.

With such a long way to go to bridge the gap in gender inequality, it’s so crucial to give space for female artists and to celebrate their talent. Follow the link here to listen. The tracklist is below!
