#bifnakedofficial

Other acts to see this year:

Bad Skin – This Montreal band recently released their single “Completely Insane.” They will be touring the UK prior to their EP release in July.  #badskinband

Equal – No matter your ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, race or religion, you deserve to be treated equally- that’s what musical duo EQUAL believe.

Saleen Nolan and Chelsea Nolan, 20 and 22 years old, believe that having a platform means using it to do good – and what a platform it has truly become.  #thebandequal

Housewife – Housewife is Brighid Fry (she/her) and Pascale Padilla (they/she), two queer Toronto-based songwriters who are only just getting started at 19 and 20 years old. They released “Patrick Bateman” in May. #housewife_band

King of Foxes – King of Foxes is the stage name of indie-alternative artist, Olivia Street. Delivered in a voice equal parts fierce and fragile, Street’s lyrics are poetic and evocative, deftly interwoven with seeing-eye hooks and a cogent understanding of songcraft. Think HAIM meets Waxahatchee with a touch of Liz Phair. Since launching King of Foxes, she has independently released two critically acclaimed albums. #kingoffoxesband

Neon Bloom – Neon Bloom’s Jen Simpson [vocals], Fred Yurichuk [bass], Simon Chow [guitar/keys], and Chris Romano [drums]. They released the Still Life EP, and their latest single is “A Bullet In Tomorrow.” #neonbloommusic

Velours – velours is an alt. pop singer/songwriter full of emotion, carried by a velvet voice. Her desire to explore feeling through music, while not taking things too seriously, resonates with her audience. She released her first EP Identity September 2020. #veloursartist

Unfinished Mail – April 2021

 
spring-music
 
It’s April. It’s Spring. We’re heading towards 25% of 2021 being done and there are signs of re-opening. SXSW had its first online festival and we’re looking forward to Canadian Music Week doing the same. I’m hearing of national shows coming in October, or earlier where you are. The question is now Festivals. This month we restarted our Festival of the Month area with a big disclaimer: FEMMUSIC is returning to having a Festival of the Month. Currently, we are only listing festivals that are actively selling tickets or are only online. Yesterday I was talking with some photographers and we’re curious to see what rules will exist to shoot live shows when things re-open. Will there be limits on the number of photographers? Will it squeeze out small outfits? There are still many unknowns as we move forward. The good news is we’re moving forward. 
 
If you know me then you know FEMMUSIC is not my only gig. Since before FEMMUSIC started I’ve been involved in the local scene and a local non-profit called The Colorado Music Business Organization. COMBO for short. During Covid COMBO has taken up a lot more of my time. COMBO works to inform and educate Colorado musicians on the business side of the biz. It has been around for 20 years. In 2020 I rejoined the Board of Directors as Secretary. I also work on helping program general meetings. It is unpaid work that benefits the community. I take great pride in it. Post-Covid the local community will come back and we need organizations like COMBO to figure out what the new normal is. 
 
Sincerely,

Letter From The Editor

 
I Started the Marathon Out of Breath
 
Welcome to Women’s History Month. For FEMMUSIC, it is just another month.  February flew by so quickly I felt like I was constantly trying to catch up. Now the marathon begins. SXSW starts in 2 weeks. You will find some SXSW artists featured this month as we work towards our annual preview. Canadian Music Week is not far behind. 
 
In February  Facebook banned News in Australia. I was reading how “news” included music festivals and other sites. It made me ask the question, “Is FEMMUSIC news?” If Facebook wanted to do the same thing, would FEMMUSIC go? It is a strange twist to see a private company ban a country. Normally it is the other way around. China banned BBC. Trump tried to ban TikTok. Where and when will it stop?
 
This month should be insane. I’m spending the last days of February trying to catch up because everything moves faster now. 
 
 
Sincerely,
