Press Release: Empowering a generation of female music producers

Empowering a generation of female producers Town Hall Symphony Hall and Cubepresent a FREE six week music production course with Emmavie.

Earlier this year, Town Hall Symphony Hall and CUBE presented a six week music production course designed for female producers from Birmingham.

A recent report titled Inclusion in the Recording Studio – the second annual report from Professor Stacy L. Smith and the USC Annenberg Inclusion Initiative to investigate the music industry – highlighted that only 2 percent of producers across 400 songs were female. For producers, this translates into a gender ratio of 47 males to every one female. 

The free course was led by London-based singer-songwriter, DJ and producer Emmavie.

Emmavie has already gained support from the likes of Apple Music and Rinse FM and was crowned BBCRadio 1Xtra’s Best of British for an unreleased song featured on her forthcoming album, Honeymoon.

Emmavie also has credits with a number of international artists including collaborations with IAMNOBODI, Budgie, ROMderful, Jarreau Vandal, Dornik, Alfa Mist, and Jay Prince.

In Town Hall Symphony Hall’s first IG:TV video, participant Lekky Music said: “I’ve gained a lot more confidence when it comes to approaching production.”
