*ABOUT SONG SUFFRAGETTES
Born in 2014, Song Suffragettes has taken place every Monday night at The Listening Room Café in Nashville, Tennessee. In its eight years, the collective has showcased more than 380 talented women out of over 2,000 who have submitted to play the show. With weekly sell-outs, it vocally combats widespread discrimination against women in the music industry by giving female talent a place to play, grow and evolve with fellow creatives. Since its inception, 28 Song Suffragettes women have gone on to receive record deals and 60 have landed music publishing deals. With over 5 million views on their YouTube channel, Song Suffragettes was named by Billboard magazine as one of “Next-Gen Nashville: 16 People, Places and Things Shaking Up Music City”.
Featured in The New York Times, Forbes, ELLE, Rolling Stone, Washington Post, Grammy.com and on PBS NewsHour and NPR, Song Suffragettes continues to fight for female talent to be heard throughout the US and beyond.
Beginning in November 2022, Song Suffragettes also planted its roots outside of the United States with a new monthly night at The Camden Club in London, following a sold-out “triumphant London debut” (Entertainment Focus) during its first ever UK tour in October.
