Spotify has partnered with the Berklee College of Music and Electric Lady Studios to provide a rare opportunity for female music producers and engineers, with a program called the EQL [Equal] Residency Program for Women. The program aims to provide three women with a paid six-month residency in either New York, Nashville, or London.

The chosen applicant for New York will spend her time at Electric Lady Studios and Spotify’s studios. Meanwhile, the residents for Nashville and London will spend the entirety of their six month residency at Spotify’s Secret Genius Studios. Again, not only is this a paid residency, but the winning applicants will gain knowledge that will help further their careers.

In the words of Kerry Steib, the Director of Cultural Impact at Spotify:

Women are underrepresented as artists, songwriters, engineers and producers. We have to use our resources to create opportunities to address this, and do it with great partners across the industry. This is just the beginning.”

Applications for the EQL Residency Program are currently live until 5 p.m. EST on August 24th. If you’d like more information about the program and would like to apply click here. Residencies for all three cities start October 1st and last six months.

All of us at DMNW are excited that opportunities like this are starting to rise up. Additionally, we’re hoping to see more programs like the EQL Residency Program for Women pop up in the near future.
