Girls Behind the Rock Show

Helping advance the music industry one woman at a time.

Who We Are

GBTRS was founded on the principle of female empowerment within the music industry. We are dedicated to helping artists and bands drive  empowerment and diversity in productive and positive ways, and promoting these initiatives throughout the culture of the music scene.


We collaborate with musicians, labels, and more to spread the message of empowerment and inclusion of all genders in the music industry.​


We create opportunities for young women and non-binary people to learn the ropes of the music industry through initiatives like Roadie for a Day, Festival Immersion, and more.


We educate and prepare the next generation of women and non-binary people in music through mentorship in our networking group of over 6,000 members.
