Going over EclecTopia’s playlists, I realized how much music was by women artists. A decade or two ago, this might not have been the case.
In the dark ages, the female singer, the typical front person in a band, was usually dismissed by musicians as being, well, just the singer. Innovators in the 70’s and 80’s, like Joni Mitchell and Kate Bush, proved that women were a musical force to be taken seriously and it is now de rigueur for women not only to write, but play and produce their own albums. Here’s just a small selection of such artists.
