A few musicians who changed everything.


Joni Mitchell

This award-winning, chart-topping, collaborative artist recorded 19 studio and 6 live albums. She has inspired generations of singer-songwriters, normalizing both political activism and emotional transparency in songwriting.

Emerged out of Canada and the late 60s hippie scene, Michell's work continues to inspire and influence singer-songwriters to this day.

Aretha Franklin

Winning 18 Grammy awards of 44 nominations, Franklin is known as the Queen of Soul. In 1960's America, Franklin infused the young Soul market with the sounds and feelings of gospel. Her influence empowered other artists of her day, and continues to influence artists even now.

David Bowie

Widely credited with introducing theatrical production values to music concerts, Bowie was all about blurring lines. His breakout work as Ziggy Stardust blurred gender and societal norms, as his music blurred the lines between edgy rock, narrative folk, dance, punk, and soul.

Stevie Wonder

This visionary revolutionized music as a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and producer. A recording artist on Motown at age 11, he went on to record 23 albums, including Songs in the Key of Life which is considered one of the greatest albums of all time. Wonder's work experimented with, and grew music using, synthesizers.
His lyrics addressed social, political, and spiritual issues, while his music melded styles: jazz, soul, gospel, rock, funk, reggae, Latin, and African.
