Born in 2014, Nashville’s all-female singer-songwriter collective, Song Suffragettes has taken place every Monday night at The Listening Room Café in Nashville, Tennessee. In its eight years, the collective has showcased more than 380 talented women out of over 2,000 who have submitted to play the show. With weekly sell-outs, it vocally combats widespread discrimination against women in the music industry by giving female talent a place to play, grow and evolve with fellow creatives. Since its inception, 26 Song Suffragettes women have gone on to receive record deals and 60 have landed music publishing deals.
Following on from the success of the long awaited first UK shows in October featuring Carter Faith, Twinnie, Robyn Ottolini and Kalie Shorr, during the final night of the tour during Country Music Week in London, the events founder Todd Cassetty announced that Song Suffragettes will now have a permanent British home for a monthly residency at The Camden Club in London on the first Wednesday of each month.
This residency began in November with Vic Allen, Hannah Rose Platt and Peri Rae alongside US artist Jordyn Mallory, before Emma & Jolie, Bea Stewart, Izzie Naylor and Katherine Nora played the second event in December. Just before Christmas we spent some time with the shows founder Todd Cassetty to talk about the development of the shows in the UK which you can check out below and for the all-important details for any artists that are wanting to try and play:
