The Female DIY Musician

Vision & Values


Our mission is to give women in music more visibility, agency and creative control by doing two things:

  1. Providing world class training in recording and production that allows women to not just survive - but thrive - with music tech, so they can enjoy greater independence, autonomy and success in their music as a result. 

  2. Sharing content that a) highlights women role-models in music technology; b) brings awareness to the challenges women in music face today, and; c) provides information and resources for people looking to be better allies or make change in this area.


Everything our team does needs to contribute towards us achieving these objectives. 


If we are going to change people’s lives, it will be down to the talents, the great ideas and the behaviours of each of the team. We have three important characteristics which we expect all team members to embody:


This runs through all we do and is our guardrail for all decisions we make and how we show up in the world. It means making tough decisions, it means having hard conversations, but we’re available for that.


We’re here to support artistry, to help women take their creative ideas out of their heads and into the rest of the world through recordings they’ve envisioned and created. We’re here to be the womb that holds this process and sparks inspiration.


Everything starts with this. Once we connect to our audience as a collective of amazing women in music and create a community that values them, that’s when the magic happens. We’re here to help cultivate a deep sense of self-assuredness and confidence in the women we serve, and that starts with cultivating inclusive and supportive communities.


Are you a perfect fit for this position?
