Making the studio space more EQL

Making the studio space more EQL

In partnership with Berklee College of Music and Electric Lady Studios, Spotify’s EQL Studio Residency will help open the door for emerging female producers and engineers while shining a light on the great work already being done by women in the music industry.

Starting in October, the program will offer three residencies in three different cities: New York, Nashville, and London. During these paid six-month residencies, one participant in each city will work hands-on in our studios and gain access to invaluable networking and mentoring opportunities to further her career.

Have a Question? Read our FAQ!

Am I able to apply to more than one residency?

Go for it!

I have a previous commitment (a tour, etc) that conflicts with the dates of the program. Can I apply and miss a few days in the studio?

This will depend on the specific residency you’re applying to. If you have commitments that conflict, please disclose the dates in your application and we’ll evaluate on a case-by-case basis. For example, the Nashville residency will have more flexibility than in New York.

Will there be an additional funds for housing?

We’re providing a stipend to compensate the residents, but you’ll be responsible for your own housing, food, etc.

What are the hours I need to be available for the residency?

This will also depend on the studio you’re working in. However, we expect residents to be available full-time (8-10 hours a day) five days a week.

I’m not 21 now, but I turn 21 before the dates of the residency. Can I still apply?

Yes, but you’ll need to make sure we know that you will be 21 before October 1st on your application.

Can we apply to this residency as a pair?

Unfortunately, we only have space for one resident at each of the studios at this time.
