What's All About? is a place for women who play instruments from the past and present to be highlighted.

If you’re a woman who plays an instrument or are a vocalist, I’ll create a FREE listing for you that includes a few contact links and some descriptive words you’d like to include about yourself.  See the “Female Musicians’ Directory” page for more details.  Plus, I’ll include a video to highlight you or your band if you've uploaded one onto YouTube.  I’ll include the video within my YouTube Channel inside the section “Featured Female Instrumentalists”.

Why do I do this?  Well, I am a female bass player and a vocalist.  I'm very passionate about building and am having a great time seeing it through to its success!  

I don't consider myself a promoter or an agent.  I do consider myself a connector, and to be a way to help connect-the-dots by presenting valuable resources within the website. I've learned so much as I've been building it, and I want the services and information I can provide to increase the site's value for all its visitors.

LUCKY aka Rachelle Bailey, Drums/Vocals! welcomes LUCKY aka Rachelle Bailey to the Female Musicians’ Directory!

Lucky's not new to the music field, but as for drumming, she hasn't as much experience as most of her colleagues. However, her intense strength of will proves that she is unmatched.

Lucky began playing drums just a few months before being offered the opportunity to audition for the pop/punk band, The Touchies.  This is when she had to decide what she really wanted from her musical passion and the undying love for drums.

Go to the Female Musicians’ Directory to connect with Lucky through her listing!   You can also visit Lucky Bailey's site at  Thank you, Lucky!

Sharon Hazel, Guitarist/Vocalist!

Known for her multi-faceted songwriting and honest lyrics about a California kid embracing adulthood in Chicago, Sharon Hazel enjoyed a successful solo career prior to forming Sharon Hazel Township.  The Crumb Records recording artist has appeared in national and local media including Performer Magazine, Indie Music Television Show, and San Diego Reader.  Shortly after her move from Chicago to San Diego, Sharon Hazel Township was born.  The acoustic based band plays mostly original music influenced by folk, rock, jazz, and funk.  Known to stray from verse and jam during a set, SHT was named one of southern California's premiere bands by Nug Magazine.

See Sharon's listing and some of her performances in the "Female Musicians' Directory".  Thank you, and welcome, Sharon!  I'm honored to include your listing inside the directory.
