Play Your Gender


Only 6 women have ever been nominated for a Producer of the Year Grammy and no woman has ever won. In Play Your Gender, Juno award-winning producer Kinnie Starr is on a quest to find out why this disparity exists by speaking to industry stars and veterans about the realities of being a woman in the recording studio.

Play Your Gender features interviews with Sara Quinn of Tegan & Sara, Melissa Auf der Maur of the Smashing Pumpkins, Patty Schemel of Hole, Chantal Kreviazuk, and many more of the music industry’s most talented women.
