The Women's International Music Network (the WiMN) has good news to share. Guitarist Orianthi will co-host the 2015 She Rocks Awards. Honoring women who stand out as role models in the music industry, the She Rocks Awards are slated to take place Friday evening, January 23, 2015 in Anaheim, Calif., during the NAMM Show.
No time like the present to plan ahead to 2015.
"The She Rocks Awards does so much for women in music and I'm excited to be a part of it," shares Orianthi. "This event recognizes women who truly rock, and it will be my honor to be there to congratulate them!" A 2013 She Rocks Awards honoree, Orianthi is a platinum-selling solo artist and known the world-over as a masterful guitar player, having performed with artists such as Michael Jackson, Alice Cooper, Carrie Underwood and more.
Hosting duties will be shared between Orianthi and the WiMN founder Laura B. Whitmore. "Orianthi is such an amazing role model for female musicians all over the world," Whitmore comments. "I can't think of a better partner for leading the She Rocks Awards!"
The She Rocks Awards pay tribute to women who display leadership and stand out within the music industry, and has become a standard at the NAMM Show. Previous award recipients include female industry leaders such as Orianthi, Sheila E, Gaby Moreno, Malina Moye, Dinah Gretsch, Janie L. Hendrix, Mary Peavey, and more. The event brings together industry professionals, music icons, artists, educators, fans and media to celebrate women in music.
The WiMN also recently announced honorees for the 2015 award show; Grammy-nominated saxophonist, singer and songwriter Mindi Abair, who was a featured saxophonist on the Late Show With David Letterman and American Idol, and has toured with rock legends Aerosmith. In addition, The Bangles, Gayle Beacock, Debbie Cavalier, Amani Duncan, Katie Kailus, Paula Salvatore, and Craigie Zildjian will be feted.
The She Rocks Awards were previously held on Friday morning, but for 2015 it is moving to an evening event and will take place from 6 to 8:30PM in the Pacific Ballroom at the Anaheim Hilton Hotel. So Friday night will belong to the ladies!
The event has sold out for the past two years.
