Happening on the second Tuesday of every month beginning June 13, Song Suffragettes NYC will present five of the best female singer-songwriters from the New York boroughs and beyond. The show will feature talent from all genres in a mostly acoustic format. NYC-based artists Alexa Dark, Ariana and The Rose, Eva Westphal and Hayes Warner will kick off the series, with Jillian Dawn hosting the evening.
This expansion follows nine years of Song Suffragettes’ weekly shows in Nashville, where more than 400 women have now played, with 37 going on to receive record deals, including Kelsea Ballerini, Gayle, Lainey Wilson, as well as over 60 landing music publishing contracts.
Song Suffragettes NYC follows the launch of Song Suffragettes London in November 2022, after their first-ever U.K. tour that included sold-out shows. In March of this year, Song Suffragettes also played the C2C: Country 2 County Festival held at London’s O2 Arena.
“Given ongoing studies about the egregious lack of female inclusion in music, we as the music community must strive to nurture more young female talent wherever possible,” says Song Suffragettes Founder Todd Cassetty. “For us, expanding into NYC, America’s largest city with a rich depth of creative energy, is another way for Song Suffragettes to provide more opportunity for the most creative women in the five boroughs. After expanding Song Suffragettes into London last year, we knew we wanted to make our next expansion show somewhere in the U.S., and where better than New York City, where the depth of talent is immense.”
