Brighter Sound takes part in Wonder Women

We’re thrilled to be a part of this year’s Wonder Women, Manchester’s annual feminist festival, running 3-13 March 2016.

Women in Music has been a key focus for us over the past year with the Wall of Sounds Beth Orton residency, our support of Music Week's Women in Music awards with Band on the Wall, and the launch of our Here Come the Grrrls programme to celebrate, profile and inspire female musicians.  So far, young and emerging musicians have been mentored by Beth Orton, Michael Jackson’s guitarist Jennifer Batten, Canadian Inuit throat-singer Tanya Tagaq, The Whip drummer Fiona Daniel, guitarist Natalie McCool and electronic vocalist Elizabeth Vince.  In addition, we've offered a platform for female musicians through special commissions, masterclasses and week-long residencies.

We’re now delighted to take part in Wonder Women producing three distinct events that shine a spotlight on female talent and the challenges facing women in today’s music industry.

“To us at Brighter Sound, Wonder Women’s offer of a contemporary, creative celebration of female ingenuity is a perfect match for our Women in Music strand launched by Beth Orton last year, supporting and profiling women in the music industry." – Debra King
