Tinashe on women in the music biz: 'We need more representation'
Tinashe feels that women are still not represented equally within the music industry.
She told The Guardian: "When I first got on the scene I was honestly shocked that I could work for a whole year with hundreds of engineers and producers and not one would be another woman. We need to see more representation.”
The former The Stunners bandmember also spoke about how you can still feel vulnerable in the music industry as a woman: "Mostly it’s people’s perceptions of what it means to be a female artist and how you deal with your sexuality and people respecting your creative opinion.
"I haven’t had any straight-up, very outwardly sexist experiences in the music industry; I’ve been very lucky. Maybe one session where I had to walk out where I was uncomfortable. But for the most part I’ve worked with really great people. The issue is really a systemic, cultural one that impacts across the board.”
Tinashe released 'Joyride', her third studio album, on Friday (April 13) on RCA Records.
