FemFolk is run by a small team. In order to best support women, non-binary, trans, and intersex artists, we ask that you carefully read the below information to see if applying for FemFolk is right for you.
As the world deals with Covid-19, FemFolk has decided to offer reviews on all releases, not just new music. We're also offering reviews on music by women, non-binary, trans or intersex musicians, whose music may not fit within our normal genres.
Our platform normally exists to support artists who are creating in the folk stream of music, with a special emphasis on storytelling. This includes, but is not limited to:
Canadiana / Americana
Folk Fusion (Folk-Rock, Folk-Pop, Folk-Jazz)
Our genre constrictions have been suspended during the Covid-19 pandemic.
We are best suited to artists whose music is new or emerging in the UK. You do not need to be a UK citizen or resident to be involved with FemFolk, and we are eager to review music from around the world.
FemFolk is focussed on providing a platform and support for artists who may be subject to gender-based discrimination, or a lack of support in the UK music scene. This includes but is not limited to artists who identify as women, non-binary, trans or intersex.
For duos or groups, we simply ask that your ensemble either:
be lead, fronted, or have the majority of the songwriting done by a woman, non-binary, trans, or intersex person.
consist of at least 50% women, non-binary, trans, or intersex individuals.
Now that you have submitted your creations to the FemFolk team, here's what you can expect.
During the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, we will endeavour to review every song sent to us (limit one review per artist per month). Our favorite songs will be added to one or more of our new FemFolk playlists, which our team will stream constantly over the coming months.
We ask you to consider donating to the FemFolk team, which allows us to keep on reviewing, and keep on serving you. If you are unable to donate, please share our donation page, so we can continue to support artists such as yourselves.
