It was great to speak on the singer / songwriter panel at Gal Dem‘s event Bridging the Gap: Women in Music at Rich Mix.

I shared a panel with Fran Lobo, Azadi, Laura Misch and Marie Dahlstrom.

We spoke about how we started, our influences and why we make music.

Audio of Women Make Noise Discussion

I took part in a panel discussion called Women Make Noise as part of the Off the Shelf festival in Sheffield. The discussion focused on women’s experiences of music culture and the industry and featured myself, Julia Downes, Alanna McArdle and Sarita Karr.

Here is the audio of the whole event which covered many interesting topics including the exclusion of black women in music, the experiences of being a woman in a male dominated band and the experiences of being a female house and techno DJ.

I don’t always get paid for my work, so if you’ve liked my pieces and want me to write more you can donate a couple pennies to keep me going in between paid work.
