Powerful Female Toronto Artists: Past & Present
Female groups and artists in the past that focused on feminist issues were mostly middle-aged adults, as many used their past experiences as the base of their songs. In 2019, this has changed and the younger generation is largely contributing to issues that are presently occurring in today’s society.
Pop- rock girl group Girl Pow-R has done exactly this and are inspiring youth their age with songs about current topics that are extremely prevalent. The group members mention that their music touches on the “struggles that young girls face in their daily lives and how they can overcome them” such as in their original song titled Krisi, which is “about how a young girl was consumed with how she looked on the outside, and how she was perceived by others [but] she forgot what’s on the inside.”
Being an all-girl group is important to Girl Pow-R, as they state: “I have noticed recently that there are not enough positive influences for children and teens to look up to.” They believe their music “can be an outlet for people to listen to that lifts their spirits” which is their goal and they state that they want to “inspire others through the lyrics in our songs and through the messages in our social causes.”

Exclusive Premiere: Girl Pow-R release the music video for “Fun All Day”
Today, we have a lot of artists and singers who share their experiences of being in love, finding themselves, and discovering some unknown truths of life. But not many singers talk about being a kid, from a kid’s perspective. It’s either a wish to return to the past or a distanced view of that phase of life. But what about the present moment, the moment kids are living now?
When Girl Pow-R debuted, their main objective was to share the experiences and messages through inspiring and age-appropriate lyrics that would resonate with kids in their pre-teens or teenage years. Comprising of Ava, Bella, Carina, Kalista, Krisalyn, and Milana, this all-girl pop rock group have been garnering attention since the release of their first single.
