It’s a man’s world but it ain’t nothing without a woman. Whether that woman is your mothers, your new beau or Marissa Paternoster of Jersey Punk Trio Screaming Females, such words never rang so true. I was inspired to create this playlist when a student (from my class) mentioned that they were running a blog directed towards female empowerment.
The women featured on this playlist are and have been some of music most talented front women, bass masters and guitar virtuosos.Regardless of the genre they have proven their musical abilities and have yet frayed from a challenge, man or woman. They are lovers and fighters. Cool and chaotic. An endless amount of mystery and all knowing. And quite honestly I can say the music world (at least mine) ain’t nothing without them.THEY ARE WOMEN, HEAR THEM ROAR!
