A Peachy Playlist – Empowering Feminine Rock

When Lilith Fair was created over 15 years ago, it brought empowerment to women through music by uniting over 50 incredible female solo artists and musical groups. In the summer of 1999, upon arriving home from sleepover where I spent numerous summers as a child and teenager, I had my one and only Lilith Fair experience. I enjoyed the show during a hot summer night at an amphitheatre and loved every moment!

Even though my musical tastes have changed a bit since then, I have always had a soft spot for the talented female solo performer or the strong female musical group – one who composes their music, writes their lyrics and creates unique concepts for each individual album.

To pay tribute to these incredible women, I have created a playlist of my favourite female artists (both Lilith Fair alumni and other incredible talents). It was hard because I love multiple songs created by each of these gifted artists, but this is a great place to start:
