In honor of International Women’s Day, we’ve spent the afternoon compiling tunes from some of our favorite musical women. We looked into all of our usual genres – indie rock, hip hop, RnB, pop – and did our best to shine some light on the industry’s best and brightest.

The lines blur from genre to genre at times, and the definition of a “female musician” does as well. Some bands have male members. Some women are covering a song from a male artist. At the end of the day though, we tried our best to showcase acts that have a heavy female influence in their art.

So, sit back, relax, and take some time to appreciate some of the best work from women musicians around the globe.
