Reality Check

You may be surprised to learn that gender disparity in the modern music industry exists at a level that surpasses inequity in the technology and transportation sectors. While women make up 50% of listening audiences and concert attendees, we are sorely underrepresented on stage, on air, and behind the scenes. Here are just a few of the surprising statistics:

% of female GRAMMY nominees 2013-2018

% of female songwriters of 600 most popular songs
2012-2017

% of female sound engineers in the United States

% of female artists on Billboard’s Top 20 Country Airplay Chart, Dec 2018

Whether you want to be a branded sponsor or an anonymous donor, lifting these women up will lift you up. Their stories remind us to be dreamers, to be rule breakers, and to unleash our inner rock stars!

Herizon Music’s current core programs include:

** Scholarship grants for teen girls in need to attend music/sound camps

** Production of the podcast “Backstage Chats with Women in Music” featuring trailblazers and rising stars in all roles of the industry (both on stage and behind the scenes)

** Random Acts of Music, connecting female performers with professional, social, and nonprofit groups for virtual events.

** Development of a new music business education series taught by women for women
