Programming Features All-Female Lineup of Rising Pop and Indie Artists, In Support of Sexual Assault Awareness Month


Los Angeles (April 2021): One year after Gritty In Pink hosted its first-ever virtual Livestream during the COVID-19 lockdown, which drew over 600 live viewers and kicked off the Gritty Rocks Live (GRL) Tuesday night series, the community of women in music is celebrating its bright future with its Spring Fling Edition show. The movement, which is on a mission to achieve gender equity in the music industry, will host the GRL Instagram Live Fundraiser for A Voice For The Innocent on Tuesday, April 6 at 7 p.m. PST/10 p.m. EST. The show is sponsored by Owl’s Brew, Guitar Girl Magazine and Pitfire Pizza.

Gritty In Pink is thrilled to present artists including rising pop icon, Chel, young
singer-songwriters Lorelei Marcell, Cait Devin, Cloe Wilder and Jasmine Crowe, punk-rocker Suzi Moon, multi-talented singer Meia and pop/country vocalist Alyssa Ruffin. The show will be hosted by Shiragirl with house band musicians Alex Windsor, Sabrina Winter and Jeannette Lawler.

This show’s powerhouse headliner, Chel, is known for her empowerment anthem “Nasty Woman,” which addresses being an independent woman, despite society’s tendency to label strong women. Like Gritty In Pink, Chel fights to promote women’s equality, through her powerful, body-positive message.

More Spring Fling lineup highlights include Suzi Moon, who is the April Gritty
Bandmate of the Month– a new monthly digital magazine feature, highlighting Gritty In Pink musicians. Suzi, who has been a part of the Gritty family since its inception, is releasing her new single “Special Place In Hell” in April and her debut solo record Call the Shots in May, with Pirates Press Records. Her cover and interview will be showcased on the Gritty In Pink Website. Suzi says, “Music definitely chose me. I began writing songs around age 10, and it was empowering… For me, music is just one of the mediums I use to express myself. My songs have characters, fantasies and exaggerated realities that I get to bring to life through music, art, fashion, and film.”

In light of April being Sexual Assault Awareness Month, Gritty In Pink will be live fundraising to support survivors of sexual assault through the non-profit organization A Voice For The Innocent. Alyssa Ruffin will perform her bold new single “Collateral Damage” and shares, “I am excited and terrified at the same time, but it’s alarming how many others have been through a similar, if not the same trauma.”

To witness this celebration of unbridled, raw self-expression, along with the rest of the
inspiring lineup, tune into Gritty In Pink’s IG live fundraiser on Tuesday, April 6!
