“We’re really excited to be working with Girls I Rate and award-winning songwriter Carla Marie Williams on this masterclass for female songwriters and artists from Manchester. One of the stats that drove us to develop our Both Sides Now programme is that only 2% of registered songwriters in the UK are women from the North of England. It’s through brilliant opportunities like this that we are creating lasting change around the roles and representation of women in the industry.”
