FABER 'I AM...' EP
How has the role of the female artist developed over the last few decades? This project focuses on how different artists have navigated the industry. How does a woman in music become successful? Is it down to femininity and sexuality? Is it down to talent? Wealth? Age?
This topic was chosen because of the curiosity of the infinitely evolving music industry. it was once known that Women must only be seen and not heard. Even before the current feminism, women-only bands were a feature of the musical landscape - considered a bit weird and having to be twice as good. However, now in the 21st century, women have battled to get their voice heard, not only in music, but in all aspects of life. In order to be successful in the music industry, one must understand it, and this goes for all genders. As a woman in music myself, I was intrigued to find out how female artists have emerged into the industry, and how successful their methods were and in what ways.
