Feb 2014 18:42PM EDT

It's no secret that women can rock just as hard, if not harder, than men. But there seems to be a disparity when it comes to their representation in the music industry. They are topping the charts but barely getting any slots at big name festivals (this years Coachella lineup is 90 percent male).

Johanna and Klara Soderberg, First Aid Kit

Women We Love Wednesdays: First Aid Kit (Johanna and Klara Soderberg)

Jan 2014 22:21PM EDT

There's just something about a beautifully rich folk rock harmony, and that's something that sisterly duo First Aid Kit do perfectly time and time again. First Aid Kit has been going hard at it since 2007, when Johanna and Klara were discovered as one of the rising acts of Sweden, their home country. Since then, First Aid Kit has become an easy staple of the indie rock world, winning over audiences, musicians and critics alike. READ MORE

Lily Allen, "Hard Out Here"

Women We Love Wednesday: Lily Allen

Dec 2013 16:19PM EDT

It's hard not to love Lily Allen. The 28-year-old singer/songwriter is a pistol for the ages and is not afraid to speak her mind. Allen's music has always been highlighted with an acerbic wit, blatant honesty and a politcal awareness that isn't typically heard in popular music. The best part about Allen's music is that it's set to music so adorably poppy and bubblegummy that it oftentimes takes a second listen to realize the socially aware lyrics that she's written, making for music that is truly layered and original.READ MORE

Janelle Monáe

Women We Love Wednesdays: Janelle Monae

Dec 2013 19:02PM EDT

Janelle Monae is not afraid to stand out. The 28-year-old firecracker always puts 110 percent (at least) into everything she does. From her first studio album The Archandroid to this year's The Electric Lady, Monae has managed to blend together science fiction, pop and old school R&B to create some of the most original, riveting music out there today. With albums full of complex music and fascinating lyrics that recall 1950s sci-fi, Monae hasn't just broken the musical mold, she's absolutely shattered it.READ MORE

Women We Love Wednesdays: Kacey Musgraves

Dec 2013 17:42PM EDT

Kacey Musgraves has been making huge waves in the country music world since her debut studio album Same Trailer, Different Park was released in March. The 25-year-old reached No. 2 on the US Billboard 200 Album Chart and peaked at the top of the Country album charts.
