Chloe Kohanski Changed Her Voice Because Of Sexism In The Music Industry
Reading Time: 1 minutes
The sad reality is that women in the arts are still treated unfairly to say the least. They are subject to predatory advances by the largely male-dominated producers and are generally not taken seriously in the industry. Chloe Kohanski has had to deal with that at a young age. She dealt with it by changing her voice.
She claims in the Yahoo video above that she changed the register of her voice from higher-pitched to the gravely low voice we all know and love today largely because she wasn’t being taken seriously in Nashville because she was too ‘girly’. Though I love her current voice, it’s sad that she felt that she had to do that. It’s a sad testament to the reality of the music industry today.
It’s not much different in the film and TV world I come from…I mean, obviously. Just look at the news. I just hope Chloe is able to navigate the boy’s club of the music industry without too much damage to her soul. It’s tough but so is she.
