On Friday 13 November Brighter Sound, together with our partners Band on the Wall, sponsored Music Week’s Women in Music Awards.
As a partnership we’re passionate about finding and supporting female musicians to connect, develop talent and skills and thrive in the industry. We had an inspiring day celebrating the 30 most influential women from all sectors of the UK music business.
Through our commissions, residencies and Here Come the Grrrls programme we are celebrating, profiling and inspiring female musicians. Our recent focus on women in music has proved highly successful in shining a spotlight on female talent and the challenges facing women in the industry. Find out more about our latest Here Come the Grrrls event here.
