Cover Story: Fanny
Jean and June Millington started playing music together in the late-60s, but have only recently received their rightful place in the rock ‘n’ roll canon. The sisters open up about growing up in the Philippines, being one of the first visible rock groups made entirely of women, and getting the band back together.
With influences ranging from classical composers to Brazilian singers, Sasami Ashworth shares her experience in leaving Cherry Glazerr to go solo, how being a music teacher affects her performance, and her amp preferences.
Beverley Akua Mansa Tawiah went from being signed to a major label to being completely independent in the name of self preservation. From visiting her familial home in Ghana to her re-connection with the guitar, Tawiah talks about her journey to autonomy.
From maintaining her own community to paying it forward with the arts organization she co-founded with her sister to serve displaced communities, Nilüfer Yanya chats with She Shreds about creating our own realities.
Mary Timony and Betsy Wright covet trust between band members in Ex Hex. The two talk about their song writing dynamics, the extensive list of gear used on their sophomore album, and their love of classic rock.
