Daisy Rock Girl Guitars, the original girl guitar company, and Ultimate-Guitar.com, the world’s leading and fastest growing online guitar community, proudly announce the launch of Soundcheck—Where Women are Heard, an online community featuring legendary female guitarists.
Soundcheck is a free website featuring today’s top female guitarists spanning a wide range of musical genres. From shredders to performance style pioneers, the site highlights the craft and careers of the best female artists in the music industry. So far, featured artists appearing on Soundcheck include Jane Wiedlin (The Go-Go’s), Vicki Peterson (The Bangles), Sean Yseult (White Zombie), Arielle, and Sue Foley, with many more slated to join in.
"We are excited about working with Daisy Rock to create the Soundcheck section on Ultimate Guitar,” says Ultimate Guitar’s Founder, Eugeny Naidenov. “There are well over a million female guitarists from around the world visiting Ultimate Guitar on a monthly basis, and with Soundcheck, we have established an online destination for aspiring female guitarists to receive inspiration from their role models and gather with their peers.”
Geared as an all-access pass into the world of female guitar greats, the Soundcheck site features interviews with accomplished female guitarists and bassists and provides a forum for girls to interact with and support each other. Music and educational videos are also included in addition to a section featuring artists signed up with Daisy Rock Records, a partnership with Tunecore designed to provide a fast and easy way for songwriters to upload and distribute their recordings through online stores such as iTunes.
“We’re shining a spotlight on great female guitarists of our time,” says Tish Ciravolo, Founder and President of Daisy Rock Girl Guitars. “From popular recording artists to the up and coming star and to the girl player who finally gets her solo, if she’s got extraordinary talent, she will be heard and talked about on Soundcheck.”
