The other women who’ll be recognised on the night are Grammy award-winner Gloria Gaynor, singer, songwriter Beatie Wolfe, D’Addario Foundation executive director Suzanne D’Addario Brouder, founder of Guitar Girl Magazine Tara Low and former music professor Myrna Sislen.

PRS Guitars’ marketing director Judy Schaefer, founder and president of Gender Amplified Inc, and Atlantic Records audio engineer and producer Ebonie Smith and former 4 Non Blondes vocalist Linda Perry will also be honoured.

Women’s International Music Network’s Laura B Whitmore says: “We’re ready to kick off 2020 in a big way and our upcoming honourees are an exciting part of that.

“These women go above and beyond in their respective corners of our industry and are perfect examples of why we are proud to celebrate women in music.”
