as we kick off march, which is women's history month, i wanted to take the opportunity to shine a light on some of the incredible female artists and creatives who have paved the way for women in the music industry. and for me, there are few who have been as influential as no doubt and gwen stefani.
from the very first time i heard gwen's unique voice, i was hooked. her introspective lyrics and insane hooks spoke to me in a way that few other artists could. i was in awe of her ability to capture such raw emotion and vulnerability in her music, and to use her platform to speak out about important issues. her fearlessness and passion for her craft have inspired me to be true to myself and to create music that is honest and authentic.
above is one of my favorite performances from no doubt, their 1995 concert in anaheim, california for the live in the tragic kingdom video album. i used to study this performance!
as we celebrate women's history month, i want to encourage all of you to take some time to discover and appreciate the incredible female artists and creatives who have come before us, and who continue to inspire us to this day. whether it's gwen stefani, or any other female artist who has had an impact on your life, let's celebrate their contributions and keep their legacies alive.
