This Sunday is International Women’s Day and in honor of such a holiday, I’ve put together a playlist of songs from some kick-butt female singer/songwriters.
Starting off, I’ve got a few new names to share: Sharon Van Etten and Haley Heyderickx. Then, I’ve got some killer classics like Jenny Lewis, Maggie Rogers, and Ingrid Michaelson. There’s a great duet by Gabrielle Aplin and Nina Nesbitt, finishing out with the Highwomen who are making female folk/country history. “Favourite Ex” is a great little nostalgic song and “Night Shift” by Lucy Dacus makes me want to dance it all out.
So, here’s to all the women out there who deserve to be celebrated on International Women’s Day, and everyday. Keep singing your song.
