Hi everyone! To close out Women’s History Month and our influential women musicians series (at least for now), I’m here to talk about P!nk! First I've gotta say, WOW I LOVE P!NK! I’ve been listening to her since I’ve been a small child and she has always inspired me so much. She is such a badass and thus has made me want to be a badass too. P!nk was signed to a record label at age 16 after dropping out of school at a time when the standards for women in the pop music industry
I love women!! As the end of Women’s History Month approaches, I thought I’d do a short write up and share a couple of my favorite women musicians. When I was in middle school I started listening to Paramore, I remember my older sister going to their concert when she was like 16, and I wish I could have gone back then. I would try to belt “All I Wanted” in the car until my voice was gone, but sadly I was never able to hit it like Hayley Williams (probably from being trained i
Hey y’all! In honor of Women’s History Month, I want to talk about one of the most influential women to come from the music industry. Please don’t get mad, but I am referring to a country artist. Dolly Parton is one of my personal favorites and hopefully after this, I will convince you that country music isn’t so bad. Especially when you consider the gem that is Dolly Parton. Dolly is one of the OG’s of the country genre and was one of the pioneers for country female artists.

For my report I’ll be talking about Britpop icon, Justine Frischmann. She’s a painter now, and a damn good one, though back in her day, she was effortlessly cool and massively influential to not only that movement but also a huge variety of female-fronted rock groups later on, and certainly at the time. In the early years, Frischmann played guitar with Suede, the scene’s incendiary band. She was dating lead-singer Brett Anderson at that point, and after they broke up she left
Concerts in video games aren’t a new thing, though still relatively novel. Minecraft music festivals like Block by Blockwest and concerts from performers 100 Gecs, Grandson, Anamanaguchi, and others were happening in 2016. Video game concerts go as far back as the life simulator Second Life which had a live concert with Suzanne Vega in 2006. All of this is to say that concerts inside video games are not a new phenomenon, but were only given new life in the COVID-19 pandemic.
Alright y’all… it’s Women’s History Month and what better way is there to celebrate here at WIDR then by sharing some of our favorite influential women musicians! To start us off on this little series I’m going to be talking about Janelle Monáe who is an inspiration to many, and if she isn’t already an inspiration to you, she really should be and hopefully I can convince you why. First of all, I have never listened to someone’s music that is so empowering. There are some peop
One of my most charming qualities is my musical elitism. You know what I mean. The way people act when they don’t like someone’s music and mistakes that opinion for fact? That’s me! It wasn’t always this way, but somewhere along the line I just got fed up with hearing the same shit all of the time. The nature of pop-radio, it seems, is to shove a song down your throat and then ditch it like a pencil with a dry eraser. Like remember Iggy Azalea? Yeah. She’s a private contracto
