We’re all about highlighting amazing women in the music industry. We talk to Gulce Turek who is on the marketing team at Fantasy Records.
We love highlighting badass women in the entertainment industry. One of our favorites is Crowd Surf, they’re responsible for helping so many young artists break into the music industry. Crowd Surf was formed in 2007 by Cassie Petrey and Jade Driver and as the brains behind the operation, they’ve worked with the Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, Max & Harvey, and some of our favorites Why Don’t We and Jena Rose.
I was just doodle-bopping around on Twitter yesterday when I saw this fantastic tweet from Portugal. The Man recognizing Zoe Manville for her kick-assery at balancing life and band matters.
Launch Left is a new kind of podcast. It’s hosted by Rain Phoenix and Moon Zappa and they dive deep into music and artist integrity as they interview legends of the music industry about up-and-coming artists.
Who Run The World is London’s first promotions company exclusively showcasing women in music. They’re celebrating their second birthday on August 13th with a killer lineup featuring ARXX, Fightmilk, The Baby Seals, The Menstrual Cramps, and Suggested Friends. I talked to founder Beth White about the idea behind Who Run The World and why it’s necessary for women to support other women.
Katie Costello has an otherworldly vibe about her. Her voice has been compared to Ingrid Michaelson and Regina Spektor. She has such a unique vision and way of looking at music and her new EP “New World” is unique and interesting.
We all know that LA has an incredible music scene, but asides from the huge acts that dominate the charts there’s a whole independent scene that has been a subject of fixation to me for quite a while. One group in particular, Play Like A Girl seems to be at the forefront of every cult-favorite band right now. The group puts on shows featuring female performers, but other than that they host workshops, run their own label, and promote the hell out of up and coming acts. I talked to founder Kimi Recor about the birth of the project and where she sees it heading.
The other day I was at a show with my friend and this guy across from me took an interest in my opinions on music. By “took an interest” I mean he decided to tell me how everything I was saying was stupid and I obviously didn’t know what I was talking about, but since he was older and man he understood ~the industry~ way more than little me. Now, here at The New Nine, we believe that everyone’s opinions on music are valid, but we especially like to stand up for young women because so few music publications do.
The weather didn’t look great for Grace Mitchell’s show. It had rained all morning but it had subsided for the moment. There was no one I was more excited to see on Sunday at Hangout Fest. “Now” is one of my favorite songs this year. The hard rock edge combined with 80s synths make it so instantly catchy.
Sweet Penny Lane…the incredible character Kate Hudson plays in the iconic Almost Famous. I’ve been called Penny Lane more times than I can count. I have big blonde hair and an affinity for flares and fur coats, but I am not your band-aid.
