WOMEN + THE POWER OF MUSIC

Inspired by my own desire and attraction to music as an art, this archive was created to celebrate the contributions of women throughout history to the music industry. As the years go on, more and more women are inspiring others through their music. This is an ode to those women who have paved the way for new generations to thrive. Visit the archive here.
