SPOTIFY CREATING NEW RESIDENCY TO MENTOR WOMEN ENGINEERS AND PRODUCERS

Spotify has announced a new partnership with Berklee College of Music and Electric Lady Studios to help mentor emerging female producers and engineers, along with highlighting great work already being done by women in the music industry.

Named as Spotify’s EQL Studio Residency, the program will offer three paid, six-month residencies in three different cities: New York, Nashville, and London. One participant in each city will work hands-on in the studios to learn various skills central to furthering her career, as well as gaining access to valuable networking opportunities—a key perk to getting your foot in the door of the music industry. 

"Women are underrepresented as artists, songwriters, engineers and producers,” says Kerry Steib, Director of Cultural Impact for Spotify. “We have to use our resources to create opportunities to address this, and do it with great partners across the industry. This is just the beginning.”

"This exciting collaboration recognizes the many contributions women make in the music industry," said Darla Hanley, Dean of the Professional Education Division at Berklee, "we are happy to support and mentor the recipients of the EQL Studio Residency and look forward to sharing our expertise and many decades of combined experience across all corners of the industry with them.”
