Daisy Rock Girl Guitars—the original girl guitar company—and The GRAMMY Museum® are thrilled to present the “Women in Rock” series, a unique collaboration of successful female music industry professionals gathered to inspire and help L.A. youth through a series of in-depth and insightful panel discussions inside the museum’s Clive Davis Theater.
The first of the “Women in Rock” panel discussions will gather over 200 students, grades 6-12, on October 6, 2010. The event will feature five impressive female music business professionals, as well as seasoned performers who are currently working in today’s industry, including Megan Jacobs (Talent Buyer/Promoter–The Roxy Theater), Julianne Johnson & Lindsay Harris (Co-Founders–Viva La Rock), Janet Billig Rich (Manager/A&R–Manage This! Media), and Samantha Maloney (former drummer of Hole, Mötley Crüe, Chelsea Girls).
"Partnering with The GRAMMY Museum on these events has been a very rewarding experience. At first, we planned for just one event, but the response we’ve had from women within the industry was extraordinary so we are currently organizing a second one,” noted Daisy Rock President and Founder, Tish Ciravolo. “I’m happy to partner with The GRAMMY Museum to give back to the youth in our community by exposing them to these women leaders and all the wisdom they have to share.”
The second “Women in Rock” event will be hosted on October 19, 2010 with industry professionals, including Stephanie St. Gal de Pons (A&R—Alfred Music Publishing, formerly at Warner Chappell), Beth Sestanovich (Group Publisher—LA Weekly), Tina Morris (Studio Manager—The Village Recording Studios), and Erin Yasgar (Independent Consultant). Additional details to be announced.
