Report Women Artists Songwriters Are Missing In Country Music

first_imgUnderwood took action last year, building her 2018 tour with an entirely female bill, saying it was her way of supporting women “who deserve to be there.” Perhaps her insight provides a glimpse”It’s good when women support women,” said Underwood. “One of the good things that has come out of these conversations has been the rallying that we’ve had for each other, behind each other. We all need more of that in our lives.”The Annenberg report on women in country concluded, “The most effective solution is for the industry to undertake a collective effort to address disparities,” and it continued to lay out recommendations for ways labels, terrestrial radio, advocacy groups, streaming services and live entertainment professionals can take action.

Perhaps most concerning is that, while 2018’s number, 19 percent, was higher than 2014 and 2017, it was equal to 2016, indicating the situation is not necessarily improving.Percentages of women songwriters on the country charts were equally bleak. When analyzing 200 country songs from the same four-year span, the study found only 12 percent of top-charting country songs were written by women, this compared to 14 percent on the pop charts.Another alarming statistic the study revealed states the average age of top male artists is 42, while the average age of top female artists is 29. “Women are not only disadvantaged in the country market,” the study reads, “But their age illuminates a sell by date that their male counterparts do not experience.”The problem has received increased attention recently. Just last year, GRAMMY winner Carrie Underwood spoke out specifically against the gender gap in country radio. In an interview with Elaina Smith on Nash Country Daily’s “Women Want To Hear Women” podcast, Underwood pointed out the lack of women on country radio has only gotten worse, saying, “Even when I was growing up, I wished there was more women on the radio, you know. And I had a lot more that there are today.”First-time GRAMMY nominee this year Ashley McBryde echoed Underwood’s reflection, saying, “You look at the ’90s, they’re were as many if not more strong female artists as there were strong male artist, and they all got along. Nobody was bitching about one another. I think that’s the wrong way to go. Country music is a big-ass place. There’s room for all of us.”Underwood and McBryde are correct. A 2016 report by Stanford University researcher Devarati Ghosh confirmed that major labels have brought fewer female artists to radio in the 2000s compared to the mid-’90s. In 2017 a report by the Tennessean found the percentage of female-only country songs on the radio has indeed dropped since 2016.The USC Annenberg study follows their 2018 report on gender imbalance in recording studios, which stated just 2 percent of producers and 3 percent of engineers/mixers are women. The Recording Academy Task Force on Inclusion and Diversity have since launched the Producer and Engineer Inclusion Initiative aimed at course correcting the gender imbalance.Modern country trailblazer Kacey Musgraves, whose 2018 album Golden Hour took home the GRAMMY for Album Of The Year plus three more awards in country categories earlier this year at the 61st GRAMMY Awards, addressed gender gap in country in an interview with Billboard last year. Musgraves, who has expressed her vision for moving past the age-old gender barriers in country music.”I’m hoping we can get back to a musical world where talent and uniqueness got you further than politics,” Musgraves said, “Where the quality of a song was what would make you a household name. Can you imagine what that landscape could sound like? What future generations it could inspire?” A new study on the genre’s recent hits quantifies the drastic underrepresentation of female performers and songwriters on the charts and also shows gender imbalance in career longevity Nate HertweckGRAMMYs Apr 8, 2019 – 1:30 pm The picture of female underrepresentation in country music continues to become clearer, as a new study conducted by the USC Annenberg Inclusion Initiative finds only 16 percent of the top charting country songs from 2015-2018 were performed by female artists.

Google Doodle celebrates colors of artist Paul Klee

first_img Online Post a comment Tags Share your voice 0 Google celebrates Swiss-German artist Paul Klee. Google Paul Klee was a Swiss and German artist known for developing a distinct, individual style, drawing inspiration from a range of artistic movements, including cubism, expressionism and surrealism.He was also prolific, creating about 10,000 paintings, drawings and etchings during his lifetime.To celebrate Klee’s 139th birthday Tuesday, Google is paying homage to the artist’s sometimes dry and sometimes child-like approach with a Doodle reminiscent of Klee’s Rote Brücke (Red Bridge) — a 1928 painting that uses a pattern of shapes and contrasting yet harmonious hues to represent the rooftops and arches of a European city.The painting reflects Klee’s deep exploration of color theory — the mixing of colors and the visual effects of specific color combination. Born in Münchenbuchsee, Switzerland, on December 18, 1879, Klee was the son of a music teacher and Swiss singer. An accomplished violinist at a young age, Klee received an invitation to play with the Bern Music Association at age 11 before turning his attention to the visual arts as a teen.In 1898, Klee began studying art at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. By 1905, he had begun to develop experimental techniques, including drawing with a needle on a blackened pane of glass.A natural draftsman, Klee excelled at drawing but seemed to lack a natural feel for color, which for Klee represented optimism in art. During a trip to Paris in 1912, following his exposure to cubism and bold colors of other artists’ work, Klee began experimenting with watercolors and landscapes, lamenting that that “a long struggle lies in store for me in this field of color.”His artistic breakthrough came two years later, when during a visit to Tunisia, Klee was inspired by the light in Tunis and began to delve into the “cool romanticism of abstraction.” He wrote in his diary:  “Color has taken possession of me; no longer do I have to chase after it, I know that it has hold of me forever… Color and I are one. I am a painter.”When he returned to Munich, Klee painted In the style of Kairouan, considered his first abstract, composed of colored rectangles and circles. In 1916, he joined the German army, painting camouflage on airplanes and working as a clerk, but his work continued to evolve during World War I.Klee taught art in Germany from 1921 until 1933, when the Nazis declared his work indecent and fired him. Later that year, Klee fled with his family to Switzerland, where he died in 1940 after suffering for years from a wasting disease.Klee was considered to be at his peak during this tumultuous time, continuing his torrid pace of output. In 1939, he produced more than 1,200 works, a career high for a single year.CNET’s Holiday Gift Guide: The place to find the best tech gifts for 2018.
