About Herizon Music Foundation


3571 FAR WEST BLVD, NO 3152, Austin, TX 78731, US

Mission Statement

Herizon Music Foundation, a 501c3 nonprofit envisions a music industry where any woman can make a living based on merit, no matter her age, appearance, familial status, or orientation. Our mission is to uplift the next gen of womxn in music through education, experience, and role-modeling programs.


We have three main areas of support for women in music: EDUCATION-this is done by creating material, trainings, webinars, speaking engagements, and panel discussions around all areas of the music industry but especially concerning discrimination around age, appearance, familial status, and sexual orientation. EXPERIENCE-this is done by giving musicians free access to our booking platform called Herizon Music, bookings by Random Acts of Music. Women can create a profile listing the types of gigs they wish to play, in person or virtual, and get paid fair wages. We guarantee payment prior to start of gig and address any issues that arise (hopefully this never happens but we got you in case :-). ROLE MODELING-this is through Herizon Music' Backstage Chat series where we interview influential women in the biz from artists, producers, and everything in between.
