|They produce artists, oversee
publishing, sign hot new acts, engineer enormous
music festivals, place songs in award-winning movies

a male-dominated business, these women, lesbians
and music industry moguls exemplify girl power.

Egnew blew the glass ceiling off of the independent
music scene in the 90's while fronting and producing
the popular all-girl band Pope Jane. From there,
she's produced numerous acts and penned songs
for country greats like Alan Jackson. "Music
is such a powerful universal language that being
a gay woman in music is almost like saying I'm
a red piece of sand on a beach. The expanse of
the beach is far more impressive than my red coloring.
However, you get enough red sand in one place
and you have quite the attraction." Named
one of the Top Female Music Producers by Music
Connection Magazine, Egnew owns Ave Vox Entertainment,
a film and music production company.
