Ladies Music Pub is a non-profit organization for womxn and gender variant people working in and around the music industry. LMP is multi-faceted; it began as a community group and has recently developed into a record label (LMP Recordings) management and production company. It was founded by Tyson Mcvey and Hannah TW in 2015. At the time, Tyson was in a band called Panes and Hannah worked at Ninja Tune, running the Big Dada sub label. LMP was born of their shared frustrations from different sides of the industry.
In 2019 Nellie Owusu and Marina Garvey Birch joined Hannah and Tyson in running LMP and growing its potential. Marina is a freelance creative producer and artist manager, Nellie is international digital account manager at Secretly Group, having earlier worked at XL Recordings (a job secured through the LMP network). There are currently around 3000 members in the online community, with influential supporters including Lily Allen, Robyn, Neneh Cherry and more. Successes so far include people employed through the network at XL Recordings, Warp, Boiler Room, Young and many more.
LMP seeks to encourage more womxn to join the industry, to facilitate space to nurture up and coming talent, and to provide help and guidance for womxn experiencing mistreatment within the industry whilst holding companies accountable to do better.
As usual, Ladies Music Pub are presenting a line-up and hosting a party at Kafé Hærverk. Trust us – LMP are a garantist for a great night out.
