Good For A Girl

Join Courtney LaPlante, vocalist of Spiritbox, for her latest project - Good For A Girl. This podcast is an inside look at the realities and challenges of being a woman in the music industry, especially the metal scene - which has been male-dominated for a long time and still is today. 

Through conversations with Musicians, Radio DJs, Record Executives, and more Courtney explores how their personal experiences of gender inequality influenced and shaped them as they navigated their way along difficult career paths. Because as a woman working in metal, nothing comes easy. 

Each episode gives behind-the-scenes insight on how the music industry operates and what life is really like for working musicians. There’s also lots of advice for other women who are struggling to carve out their own path in traditionally male-domainated spaces. With plenty of stories and laughs along the way, Good For A Girl represents a defiant middle finger to the patriarchy. 

So join Courtney as she uncovers why each one of her guests are good, for a girl.
