Less than 5% of music producers and engineers are women, even though many of the most bankable stars in the industry are female. Women are often the face of a band, but rarely write the lyrics, whereas men are often hired to do the technical work behind the scenes. The music industry has a massive impact on our economy and culture. The songs we consume and the musicians we revere attest to our value systems, and in turn reinforce our cycle of consumption. This exclusive feedback loop bypasses women’s talents at a structural level. Play Your Gender attempts to break that loop. Director Stephanie Clattenburg and musician Kinnie Starr highlight women’s achievements in the industry, and take us on a quest to understand how it came to be that the gendered authorship gap exists. These candid and insightful discussions, with some of Canada’s best known artists, will have you drumming along in your seat and leave you inspired to follow your art.
