She said.so reveal Alternative Power 100 Music List 2019

The leading network for women in the music industry she said.so have today (Tuesday) announce the honourees of the Alternative Power 100 Music List at AIM Connected, the Association of Independent Music’s (AIM) largest ever conference.

This year’s theme is Community and the list highlights individuals and collectives that have contributed positively to the music community.

The honourees will speak at the AIM connected conference where they will be presented with the award.

The #AltList2019 is part of shesaid.so’s ongoing efforts to empower women and other underrepresented music communities by offering an alternative to Billboard’s Power 100 List as a means to challenge conventional music industry standards.

Andreea Magdalina, founder of shesaid.so, says: ‘We created the Alternative Power 100 Music List to give voice to those whose work in the music industry often goes unnoticed. Not because it’s not good, but because it doesn’t fit the traditional sense of power and success.

‘The #AltList set out to redefine what power means in the music business, celebrating people of all genders, ages, career levels and earning figures. We firmly believe that creating more visibility for these individuals and initiatives will ultimately lead to a more diverse, inclusive and financially positive music economy.

‘Working with AIM felt like the most natural partnership, as both organisations strive to empower the industry’s independents. We are excited to honour this year’s nominees with an awards event for the first time at AIM Connected in London this April.’

Paul Pacifico, chief executive officer, AIM, added: ‘AIM is proud to partner with Shesaid.so whose Alternative Power list provides crucial recognition for the work of music professionals who are all too often overlooked in the mainstream industry.

‘The list, and its 2019 theme ‘communities’, ties in perfectly with AIM Connected’s focus on the role of people in the 21st century workplace, which will cover everything from the benefits of community to asking for help and shared parental leave. We can’t wait to find out who is included on the #AltList this year.’
