Some of the most popular artists and performers around right now are women, but if festival lineups and award nominations are anything to go by, there is a noticeable lack of female representation in the music industry. The women are there alright, but the equal footing is not. And whilst the conversation around it is evolving, we’re still nowhere near where we need to be.

Thus, the idea for ‘Mean Muse Magazine’ was born: a celebration of women and non-binary people in music and a platform to showcase their talent. Throughout history, women have traditionally fulfilled the role of the muse; overlooked and destined to be the object of art, but never the subject. Well, not anymore!

Mean Muse Magazine is an online publication committed to supporting the creative work of women and non-binary people in the music industry and carving a space for their voices to be heard. From musicians to photographers, journalists and A&R reps – you name it, we want to include it. There is so much talent out there, so why not shout about it!?

We don’t want men out of the industry, just more women & non-binary people in it!
