Hello Frank,

Thank you for all the work you do with Safe Gigs for Women. Seems like an absolute no brainer but I know not everyone gets it.

I'm curious to know some of the women in music; past and present that have influenced you. On a related note, are you familiar with Haim, the L.A based band made up of three sisters?

Thanks for the time, see you in 2018!
Eleanor

Hello. Thanks! I know of Haim, I know people who work for them, but can't say I'm familiar with the music. I'm a huge fan of Nina Simone, Regina Spektor, Tori Amos, Kate Bush etc. Also loved all the L7 / Bikini Kill / Riot Grrl stuff.

Thanks for taking the time to reply. Check out Haim if you have a chance. They may not be in everyone's wheelhouse and I was a bit surprised when they opened, along with Bear's Den, for Mumford and Sons in 2013. Nevertheless, they hooked me. Happiest of holidays to you and your loved ones.

Saw them at Reading last year whilst wandering around and they impressed me enough to stop wandering wherever it was I was heading.....

I mixed them up in my head with the band called The Staves from the UK - also three sisters. They appeared in the documentary "From Austin to Boston" from 2014 which is worth watching!! :)

"5 old VW's. 4 bands. 3 thousand miles. 2 weeks. 1 gloriously backwards tour. Featuring Ben Howard, The Staves, Nathaniel Rateliff and Bear's Den."

I agree, From Austin to Boston is definitely worth seeing! Filmmaker, James Marcus Haney's story of going from sneaking into festivals because he couldn't afford to get in to becoming Mumford and Sons full time photographer/videographer is pretty impressive! I've still got to make the time to see his film, No Cameras Allowed. I was fortunate enough to meet him briefly after a Mumford and Sons show and he seemed like a sweet, down to earth guy.
