Cover Girl 001: An Interview with Alice Bag

Aug 23, 2016

  It is beyond an honor to have Alice Bag as our cover woman for issue #001 of Women in Rock. She is a lifelong feminist who perfectly represents the strongest Women in Rock.   Growing up in a home with an abusive father drove Alice towards feminism. “I smiled whenever someone challenged him,” Alice says. However, she didn’t truly become aware of...

Now, a couple years into their career, Shannon stands strong as a talented songwriter, role model, and golden-hearted icon of all that’s good, fun, and colorful in rock culture.

Abiyah is someone you can find out almost any night of the week at every type of show. She is extremely supportive of not only the Cincinnati music scene, but the hip hop scene across the country. Abiyah has been...

Records scrounging for The Pretenders’ first album I looked up and saw the Girls with Guitars comp. The price was steep and I was on a mission and a budget. I went home with a used...

One of the great things about being in a band is sitting around listening to records together. That’s what got me on this Pretenders kick in the first place. I walked out of the basement and grabbed a beer from the fridge. Jenny and Sara were already on the futon, Roxie was stationed in one of the day-glow 70’s kitchen chairs by the end table and Todd was...

Marcy Mays of Scrawl on the Music Life

Aug 17, 2016

Back in February I went to see the Wussy album release show at the Woodward Theater. While I had heard of Scrawl, I had never seen them before. I was totally blown away and got to meet Marcy Mays (guitarist of Scrawl) afterwards. I love her bar in Columbus, Ohio (Ace of Cups) and have been lucky enough to play there several times. Immediately, I saw the...
