Do you think being a woman and a musician is different from being a man and a musician? If so, how? Was there a moment that made a difference clear to you?

When i first started playing in the '90s, it was a slightly heated time. We knew that we were doing something different by plugging in electric guitars. We never second guessed ourselves or compared ourselves to men. We just did what we did, confidently, and set our own course.

Do you see differences between generations of women musicians?

Yes, I love walking around the East Village and see so many women with gig bags walking around. It fills me up. Nothing feels better than playing music, and it's amazing to see so many women having that experience.

Did anyone ever give you any valuable advice about making your way in the music industry? What advice would you give to a woman musician just starting out?

My sister always told me to hold on to my publishing. I almost signed a UK deal that would have taken almost all of my writer's share, worldwide, in perpetuity. She encouraged me not to take it, and it was the best move I ever made, thanks to her.
