Dance Like I’ve Got Diamonds Diamonds presents new initiative to get more women involved behind the scenes in the music industry
London, 7th April 2018 - London-based promoter Dance Like I’ve Got Diamonds, who has built up a reputation for promoting some of the most exciting live music nights in London featuring female-dominated line-ups, are now back with a new initiative to get more women involved behind the scenes, involving names such as Ayelle (Artist/Songwriter), Carly Rockett (Communion Music), Luna Cohen-Solal (Warner Bros. Records), Joanie Eaton and Sarah Joy (Babelogue).
The new project is called Diamonds X Sessions and is a 3-part series of music industry focused events consisting of talks, panels and workshops open to anyone identifying as a woman or non-binary. The thought behind the initiative is to create a safe space that allows for women to meet and learn more about the industry whilst getting inspired by each other. “I believe that representation is crucial” says co-founder and project manager Lisa Lindfors about the project and continues “We need to show young women that although the music industry might seem like one big boys club, there is definitely a future for women and non-binary people within it. With these events we want to show women that there are loads of opportunities out there and hopefully give them the confidence to pursue them”.
The three events, that will be held at London venue Omeara on Sunday the 15th, 22nd and 29th April, feature a wide range of speakers from across the industry, including Swedish/Iranian singer songwriter Ayelle, Communion Presents’ Ticketing & Operations Manager Carly Rockett, multi-talent Luna Cohen-Solal who works as Social Media Manager at Warner Bros. Records by day and spin records by night, and Joanie Eaton and Sarah Joy – the co-founders of the new music company Babelogue, just to name a few.
