To celebrate International Women’s Day, Geelong’s Workers Club are bringing you – Her Sound Her Story.
Her Sound, Her Story is a vibrant and powerful celebration of the diverse female talent rich to the Australian music landscape, celebrating each other, celebrating those that have come before and inspiring those to come.
Established by independent art makers and long-time friends Claudia Sangiorgi Dalimore and Michelle Grace Hunder, the duo have brought the project to life through their dedication to documenting, celebrating and inspiring women.
The film features a whole host of beloved talent to reflect on their personal experiences, including Alex Lahey, Camp Cope, Clare Bowditch, Coda Conduct, E^ST, Jen Cloher, Meg Mac, Mojo Juju, Montaigne, Sampa The Great, Stella Donnelly, Tina Arena, Thelma Plum, Vera Blue and more.
Each story highlights the importance of unapologetic individualism and the true beauty in honest expression with the aim to inspire the next generation of young women to new and unprecedented aspirations.
This is the latest film to foster an intimate conversation around the personal experiences, histories and social impact of women of diverse ages, genres, sexual orientations, ethnicity and careers within the music industry. At the heart of the doco is a sense of hope, unflinching in its take on the issues within and beyond the music industry.
It seems like the perfect timing then with International Women’s Day on Friday March 8, that the Workers Club Geelong are hosting a screening of the film as a tribute to the awesome Lady Bosses in the local music industry.
As a story that navigates the unique challenges faced by women and sounds a collective voice beyond perceived boundaries of style, age and race, it’s something that The Workers Club’s Erin Marshall can appreciate, having being in the industry for more than a decade.
“As a woman who has worked in the music industry for over 10 years, I am in awe of the female musicians we have fostered, gain the recognition they deserve. It is a pleasure to be able to surround myself with some amazing women!”
Alongside the film, there will also be a live performance from local female fronted band Rach Brennan & The Pines, and Hassall.
