”We started Song Suffragettes in 2014 simply to give underserved female singer-songwriters a place to play their music and hone their craft,” says music industry veteran Todd Cassetty. “To watch Song Suffragettes evolve from simply a talent showcase to a proud community of talented women has been highly rewarding. And on June 11, we’re excited to once again celebrate the diversity of female voices that we will continue to support until there’s more gender parity within the Nashville music community.”
Since Song Suffragettes first made their debut four years ago, they have grown to become the Listening Room Cafe’s largest weekly sold out show. Each show airs live on Periscope with as many as 28,000 viewers per week. The Song Suffragettes performances have featured guest appearances from Lauren Alaina, RaeLynn, Lindsay Ell, Kelsea Ballerini, Deana Carter, Jesse James Decker, Jamie O’Neal and more. Nine suffragettes, including Carly Pearce and Jillian Jacqueline, have received record deals and 37 women have received publishing deals, including Kalie Shorr and Abby Anderson. The group has been featured by the Washington Post, Billboard and USA Today, and has performed at Tin Pan South, Project Music and CMA Fest.
