She Rocks Awards 2015

I was so thrilled to celebrate the achievements of these fabulous women for this year’s She Rocks Awards at the Anaheim Hilton during the NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) event. Not to mention it was my first time to cover this award show that honor women from all walks of the industry as musicians, businesswomen, and educators. I could not be more stoked.

These group of women being honored have shown their courage to pave the way and served as inspiration.

The 2015 She Rocks Awards was produced by Women’s International Music Network, founded by Laura Whitmore. Founded in 2012, The WIMN unites women who work within all facets of the music and audio industries.

This year’s co-host was Orianthi, platinum selling guitarist and solo artist. Orianthi played with Michael Jackson as part of his ill-fated “This Is It concert series. She is also known for her debut single “According to You.” According to Wikipedia, in 2009, Orianthi was named one of the 12 Greatest Female Electric Guitarists by Elle magazine.
