Women Produce Music (WPM) is an artist and producer led non-profit founded by composer producer Katia Isakoff, to promote and support the activities of music-makers, producers and audio engineers through a series of collaborative projects and initiatives.  

 

 

 

 

 

I am honored to be part of Katia Isakoff’s latest initiative to catalyse the role and visibility of women in the recording studio.   Noticing a lack of female presence in the professional arena of producing, she is not just lamenting this fact, but taking action to prime the pump that will release a flow of future talent.  Brava!

(Suzanne Ciani, 2019)

Our Ambassadors

Vanessa Reed, CEO, PRS Foundation

Website

 

We’re proud to be supporting the new Women Produce Music’s collaborative lab series.  We know, through the programmes we run at PRS Foundation, that targeted initiatives like this reach people who may not usually put themselves forward in spite of their talents and potential. Space to collaborate and experiment outside of the usual routine is also crucial to artist development, new networks and ideas. I look forward to hearing how this pilot series goes and hope we will start see more and more women taking up roles in the recording studio over the next few years.

 

 

 

Paul Pacifico, CEO, Association of Independent Music (AIM)

We were delighted to have Katia Isakoff speak at our Women In Music’ Conference earlier this year on the subject of ‘Women in the Studio’.There is clearly a significant gender imbalance with few women working on that side of the industry.  The promotion of role models alongside educational opportunities and support for young women who are thinking of entering the fields of engineering and production are key. AIM is an active supporter of female empowerment movements across the world of music and we are proud to be on board as ambassadors of Women Produce Music.

I am truly excited about the potential for the new WPM IN_KoLAB series to increase the number of women entering the music production profession. The ‘making of’ docuseries showing pioneering trailblazers and emerging artist producers discussing and practising their craft will provide a much needed resource and source of inspiration for current and future generations.  I look forward to supporting Women Produce Music through my role as ambassador and to following the series.
