Strong women cannot only be found in business, but also in the arts. FKA Twigs, Lana Del Rey and Lorde are a few examples of creative women who don’t fail to inspire us with their art of music.
FKA Twigs is not only a songwriter and singer, but also a professional dancer, who taught herself how to produce music. Lana Del Rey’s music video for ‘Video Games’ went viral and she was named the next pop star seemingly from one day to another. Both are in their twenties. Lorde broke through at only age 16 with her hit single, “Royals,” and debut album, Pure Heroine, in 2013. These are prime examples that prove to all of us career-driven females that success is not a matter of age or gender.
Pigeons and Planes pointed out very well the issue of the male-dominated music industry in an article that illustrates lineups of popular U.S. music festivals with male-fronted acts eliminated. The Coachella poster below shows what would be left if only female-fronted acts were on the bill.

How’s the gender ratio among successful artists in the music industry? Who knows. For now, we should appreciate the existing female artists that are already out there and hope for more talented girls in the future to make a mark.
At some point, everyone needs music in her life, either to get the day started, to be more productive at work or for the after-work party. Thus, The Trophy put together a Spotify playlist for your daily music dose, featuring all of your favorite artists and newcomers – females only, of course.
