Lauren Calve brings the influence of powerful female vocalists to her music, both from big names like Emmylou Harris and Patty Griffin and from DC-area musicians she’s met through Her Roots, a concert series that Calve created to feature, support, and grow the female music community in the DC metro area.
We talked to Calve about her music and Her Roots on this episode, and how supporting other female musicians inspires Calve to work harder, and aims to inspire the next generation of women in music.
The episode also includes a preview of our Who Run the World playlist, which features kickass feminist anthems.
