“This All-Female, Genderqueer Music Series Is Changing Everything” - NYLON
The Hum is an all female and non binary concert series that celebrates, instigates, and nourishes the community of female and non binary musicians in New York City and beyond.
Hum concerts feature exclusively women and non binary artists on stage, and all walks of life in attendance.
Since its formation in 2015, the series has fostered collaborations between 300+ musicians including Kimbra, Kadhja Bonet, Verite, Thao and the Get Down Stay Down, Adrianne Lenker of Big Thief, Kelsey Lu, members of Tune-Yards, Lake Street Dive, The Cranberries, Cibo Matto, Cat Power, The Julie Ruin and many more.
Every show invites a group of female and/or non binary femme presenting musicians to form impromptu “dream bands” bands, shedding the usual dynamics of their main projects and exploring new avenues of their creativity. Long-lasting friendships, creative relationships, and even bands have emerged from these collaborations - not to mention magical results on our stage. The music crosses a constellation of genres and influences, all coming together to form a space where women are linked – not ranked – and celebrated for their artistry on its own terms.
