The Women’s International Music Network (the WiMN), proudly announces that Australian born multi-instrumentalist and singer, songwriter Tal Wilkenfeld will be honoured at the 2020 She Rocks Awards, among a stellar array of honourees including Suzi Quatro, Gloria Gaynor, Lzzy Hale, Linda Perry and many others.

Unlike may artists who toil for years and never get to meet, let alone play next to their heroes, Tal’s career started at the top, performing alongside Jeff Beck, Prince, Eric Clapton, Herbie Hancock and Mick Jagger, such was her reputation. Although Tal has enjoyed an amazing career for well over a decade, she only released her debut vocal album Love Remains in 2019, the follow up to her 2007 instrumental album Transition.

Paying tribute to women in the music industry, the eighth annual She Rocks Awards will take place at 7:30p.m. on Friday, Jan. 17, 2020, at the House of Blues Anaheim, during the NAMM Show. This high-energy evening includes live music, awards and speeches, celebrity appearances, a fabulous silent auction, amazing gift bags and much more.
