IWD 2020: More Record Labels Run by Women + Trans/LGBT/Non-Binary Friendly Labels


A couple of years ago we decided it would be great to compile a list of record labels run by women. So we did and somehow it made its way onto the first page of Google.

Even more amazing was finding another list called Future Music Industry that is/was compiled by none other than our old associate Rene Kladzyk aka Ziemba! As description notes, this list is about…

Record Labels, Booking Agencies, Collectives, Media/PR Agencies, Music Presenters, Artist Management & Services, Music Supervisors, Mastering Engineers, Publishers, Music Publications, Radio Shows and Podcasts, Music Lawyers, Music Business Managers & Accountants, and Festivals with people who are WOMEN, NON-BINARY, and/or TRANS in leadership/ key decision-making positions

i.e. very similar to our own list. We highly recommend everyone to click the link above and explore (and/or read corresponding AdHoc.fm piece). In the meantime, here are a few more record labels run by women we discovered via the FMI list (and some we already know, but felt are worth mentioning anyway)….

We also welcome comments/suggestions on any labels we missed.
