HER Music PR, the Leeds-based female run, female focused PR agency supporting women in music, launches itself this weekend with a gig at Hyde Park Book Club.

The agency, founded by Emma Duffy and Rachel Lissenburg of electro pop duo Park Fires, says: “Our mission is to push for equality within such a male dominated music industry. We want to be the change for all women in music, not only to change the way we are perceived but also to change the way we perceive ourselves.”

For Sunday’s gig they’ve teamed up with Come Play With Me, the Leeds-based singles label, to put together an all female line-up. It features Luna Pines, a three-piece electronic/alternative girl band, Hannah Brown, a Birmingham-based singer songwriter, and Joule, who are described as “mysterious females making mysterious music”.

HER Music PR launch gig takes place at Hyde Park Book Club, Leeds on September 24, 7.30pm. www.facebook.com/hermusicpr/
