Traditionally, the element of water is associated with female energy. Duluth sits at the tip of Lake Superior with its 3 quadrillion frigid gallons of the stuff. Perhaps it’s all that womanly energy that attracts and inspires the creative women on this compilation. Some were born here, some moved here and some just stop by from Minneapolis & St Paul or Northern Wisconsin to play, but they’re all a part of an art scene sprung from extended winters that force residents to be creative or go insane. Like most music scenes, Duluth’s has been male-dominated, but that’s changing. Just five years ago the northern rock community boasted barely a handful of female performers; now, there are enough to fill an 18-song compilation and still have deserving acts left over.

Haley Bonar, Amy Abts & the State Champs, The Horribles, Party Store Minnows, Gild, Great Girls Blouse, Hookhead & Maher, Jerree Small, The Psychedelicates, Jackie and the Ripoffs, Kill Conformity, Shimmy, Sara Softich, Keep Aways, The First Ladies, Heidi Bakk-Hansen, Mary Bue, Estate Sale
