So do we! Herizon Music envisions a music industry where any woman can make a living based on merit, no matter her age, appearance, familial status or orientation. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, our mission is to uplift the next gen of womxn in music through education, experience, and role-modeling programs.
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
% of female sound engineers in the United States
% of female artists on Billboard’s Top 20 Country Airplay Chart, Dec 2018
