Unfinished Mail – September 2017

Fight Like A Girl

 
What does it mean to “Fight Like A Girl?” We began to ask that question after receiving the following video at the beginning of August:
 
Zolita – Fight Like A Girl (2017) – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WWcvcfpqs08
 
Zolita’s video is one of empowerment and sisterhoord and reflects the world of post the Womens’ March with the lyrics, “My Body, My Choice, My Rights and My Voice.” Zolita is the not the first artist to “fight like a girl.” We were quickly reminded of others including:
Kalie Shorr – Fight Like A Girl (2016) – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aD6vyPPbcW8
 
Emilie Autumn – Fight Like A Girl (2013) – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dvOXuZwOEvM
 
Bomshel – Fight Like A Girl (2009) – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V96r2046qjE
 
There are many others. You will also find many organizations that Fight Like A Girl including:
 
 
 
 
These organizations help to strengthen each other in times of illness or even abusive relationships. 
 
Fight like a girl does not mean fight like a man. It is a measure of mental and spiritual resolve that keeps us going no matter what hardship life throws at us.

Unfinished Mail – August 2017

 Turning 18 - FEMMUSIC's 18th Anniversary 
 
FEMMUSIC is now old enough to vote so look out at the 2018 elections. FEMMUSIC is old enough to drive. FEMMUSIC is old enough to rock! 
 
18 years ago FEMMUSIC started. The year was 1999 and the internet was flooded with music sites who had lots of money. We didn’t. I’d expected FEMMUSIC would last 6 weeks, maybe. Instead through lots of hard work we’re turning 18. Rolling Stone is 50 this year so we have a ways to go. 
 
Every year I do FEMMUSIC I find new artists. I often consider music to be a 3 minute love affair. The older I get the less I’m falling in love with the artist; the more I fall in love with the music. Often times I don’t consider myself a “fan.” Fans of artists know their catalog backwards & forwards, know the lyrics, and know the history. I go into shows cold wanting to fall in love with the music. If I’m lucky I do.
 
The older I get the more I consider my mission to teach as well as shine the spotlight on artists. I recently had someone giving me pointers on promoting what I was doing in the niche to gain advertisers. I’m long past hunting for money to keep FEMMUSIC going. The contracts I would have to sign are not worth the money. FEMMUSIC is a labor of love. Not a commodity.
 
This has been a good year for FEMMUSIC. I think last year we were busier. This year I love the team I’m working with. There is more I would have liked to have cover this year but there will be other opportunities. We won’t be stopping anytime soon.

Unfinished Mail – July 2017

Do You Hear That? 
Do You Hear That? 
 
It’s the sound of summer insanity. Lorde’s Melodrama hit the charts this week shortly after Katy Perry’s new album broke. Haim has a new album coming out and just announced their new tour. Everywhere you look new albums, new tours, new music is hitting the airwaves at a rate seen every summer. Summer is the bread and butter of the entertainment industry. The summer blockbuster films are as big as the summer music releases. Any artist that can be on the road is. Every tour is filled and we’re already booking the Fall. SXSW is already accepting applications for 2018. 
 
This month we are previewing festivals worldwide. From Quebec to Sydney to London to Portland there is music everywhere. There is no time to slow down. We’re jumping at gigs to see artists we’ve been hearing about. As I finish up the July issue I’m already feeling the breath of August in my ear. Summer is the time to be out and drinking in the music. No one sits still now.
