Girl Gang Music is a curated community and network of women and nonbinary humans within the music industry. We are songwriters, artists, producers, journalists, photographers, managers, agents, instrumentalists, and innovators within the industry.
Girl Gang Music’s mission is to promote female inclusion in all aspects of the industry, to celebrate women who are already thriving in music, and, ultimately, to develop a pipeline for girls and young women to confidently get involved in music through mentorship and community.
Why did you start Girl Gang Music?
Well, simply put, this site & community was founded in 2016 with the intention to:
- Promote female inclusion in all aspects of the music industry;
- Connect women already killing it on the creative and business side of the music industry in all capacities;
- Celebrate and connect women and nonbinary individuals already thriving in music (on the creative and business side of the music industry) in all capacities and;
- To develop a pipeline for girls and young women to confidently get involved in music through mentorship, community, and shared experience.

Will you review my next release?
No. We do not do song or album reviews. We will, however, do premieres or features about you and the work you are doing.
Do you feature men on the blog?
Hmm… in some contexts. We prefer our featured artists, bands, businesses featured on here to be at least 50% female or have a strong femme or nonbinary representation within the group. That means that we are generally sticking to the girl power w/ our content here.
What’s the story the website?
Girl Gang Music was founded in 2016 by music artist and activist Jen Miller. Read about the inspiration behind the idea and Jen’s first-hand letter to readers here.
Who do you write about?
Great question. We’re a little different than regular music blogs. We cover and profile people in all roles of the industry — creative or business. Songwriters, artists, photographers, managers, podcast hosts, label owners, journalists, producers, DJs, etc.
If you’re a woman, LGBTQIA+, or nonbinary individual with a story to share with our community, we will consider it. 🙂
