Created as part of Sadiq Khan’s #BehindEveryGreatCity campaign, Sounds Like London has been a month-long celebration of live music highlighting women working in all aspects of the music industry.
Their latest event – which will take place tomorrow at the iconic City Hall – sees Boiler Room championing the capital’s grassroots music scene with an all female line-up including some of our absolute faves, Ray BLK, Jamz Supernova and Rina Sawayama.
Speaking on the night (which is guaranteed to be amazing) the Deputy Mayor for Culture and Creative Industries, Justine Simons, says: “Despite the global success of Londoners such as Adele and Dua Lipa, women remain unacceptably underrepresented on stage, in event promotion and in music production. Sounds Like London is providing the much needed opportunities for all-woman line-ups to take centre stage that can help to make a real difference. Our work with Boiler Room, who have a stellar reputation for curating diverse and inclusive performances, is helping to support local talent, promote grassroots venues and celebrate the women who help make our capital a powerhouse of creativity.”
And Jodie Nicholson, Managing Director of Boiler Room adds, “We’re proud to partner with the Mayor’s office on this specially curated female show. Boiler Room is passionate about championing strong women within our business and beyond. We have a track record of celebrating and breaking underrepresented artists, scenes and communities giving them a global platform. This lineup showcases some of our best homegrown female talent, performing in a very special venue. We couldn’t be more hype for this celebration on home turf.”
