A celebration of female songwriters, composers & artists by Elizabeth de Brito


This will be a series of shows on at 5pm every Tuesday, so please tune in to hear more.

In all my studies of various genres I’ve always wondered where all the women are, all the classical composers I knew were white men, all the famous rock bands are exclusively white men, all the musicals are just written by white men. It’s always plagued me that every genre of music is so male dominated with a male dominated history. Apart from singers, women don’t seem to really play much of a part.

In the last month I’ve discovered that that’s not entirely true, in actual fact there have been lots of fantastic female composers, hundreds of incredible all female rock bands and more than a few really great musicals written by women. I’m not just talking about the past ten years.

My show is going to combine my eclectic taste in music with my desire to unearth these phenomenal musicians and composers. Each week I’ll take you on a journey encompassing the whole time and space of music creation, from classical to metal to Brazilian bossa nova and everything in between. Together we’ll discover all the phenomenal women that are and have been creating music – the all female rock bands, video game composers, songwriters, bandleaders, conductors and more. We will discover ‘The Daffodil Perspective’. Below is a playlist of what you have been listening to.
