There's no doubt that men seem to dominate the rock scene but there are a plethora of incredibly talented women making music as well.
While you may know the likes of HAIM, Hayley Williams, St. Vincent, and Billie Eilish, we've gathered up a batch of other artists and female-fronted bands you need to listen to during Women's History Month and beyond.
To celebrate International Women's Day on March 8, check out our list of some of our favorite women in rock (in no particular order) — a few have been around for a long time and some are brand new to the scene.
Fronted by founder Gabriella “Guitar Gabby” Logan, the Atlanta-based band (pronounced 'Tulips') is already making a name for itself with the song "Another Tear" and their Queens of the New Age EP.
Growing up in Nashville, Soccer Mommy (Sophia Allison) opted for indie rock instead of country. She's already released two albums, Clean and Color Theory. The latter reached No. 7 on the US. Alt. charts.
Noelle Scaggs of Fitz & the Tantrums
Noelle is the co-lead singer of Fitz & the Tantrums and the only woman in the band; which she's been with since 2008. Along with the band's music, she's also released her own and has been featured on a ton of songs.
Ellie Rowsell of Wolf Alice
Ellie formed Wolf Alice in the UK just over 10 years ago and the band was nominated at the Grammy Awards in 2016. They'll be releasing their third album, Blue Weekend, this June.
Ashe has quickly made a name for herself thanks to her monster hit "Moral of the Story" which you may recognize from Netflix's To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You. While she's yet to release an LP, she's put out three EPs.
You may not know Ryan Santiago (aka Royal & the Serpent) by name, but we bet you've heard her viral (and super-relatable) track "Overwhelmed" — and if not, you're missing out! her debut EP, Get a Grip, was released in October 2020.
