About The Hum Series
The Hum is an all female/gender queer concert series that celebrates, instigates, and nourishes the community of female musicians in New York City and beyond. Since its formation in April 2015, the series has fostered collaborations between 200+ female and female-identifying musicians including Kimbra, Rachael Price, Yuka Honda, Adrienne Lenker, Olga Bell, Kelsey Lu, members of Tune-Yards, The Cranberries, Cat Power and The Julie Ruin. HUM concerts feature only women on stage, and all walks of life in attendance.
Each installment of the series invites a group of female identified/gender queer musicians to form impromptu “dream bands” bands, shedding the usual dynamics of their main projects and exploring new avenues of their creativity. Long-lasting friendships, creative relationships, and even bands have emerged from these collaborations – not to mention magical results on our stage. The music crosses a constellation of genres and influences, all coming together to form a space where women are linked – not ranked – and celebrated for their artistry on its own terms.
