Presence in Sound: Zoe Willott shines light on women in audio industry

By Jasmine Jones Look at the statistics, and it’s clear: Women are extremely underrepresented in the music and audio industry. According to the “Women in the Mix Study,” women account for only 21.6% of musical artists, 12.6% of songwriters and 2.6% of producers in the industry, based on 2019 data. In the same study, 77% […]

from the editor: Summer 2023, “nostalgia”

We didn’t get tickets to Taylor Swift’s “Eras” tour. We tried really hard, but we were 11,000 and some people back in the Ticketmaster queue, and it didn’t happen.
