Cherry Glazerr have posted a lengthy statement on social media, addressing the sexism they’ve experienced in the industry and on the road. “The amount of sexism that my band and sound engineer / tour manager face on the road is simply unreal sometimes,” says the band’s frontwoman Clementine Creevy in the post. “It’s outrageous. We walk into a venue and people look the other way.”
She continues: “It feels so awful when the stage manager looks at us and scoffs, looks the other way when we come in through the door. They ask us what we’re doing here, why are we here? Who are we? We’re the band that you hired… then they accuse us of being difficult, just for existing it seems. I walk into a venue with an open mind and an open heart, I do not assume that people will be disrespectful to us.”
